The site is located within the hamlet of Noranside nestled within the heart of Angus in the East coast of Scotland, enjoying some of the most beautiful countryside in the region. Noranside is situated close to the A90 Dual Carriageway linking Aberdeen and Dundee. The site forms part of a large country estate formerly run as a government facility and enjoys a superb elevated position facing south over the Angus countryside. Noranside is believed to date back to around 1830 and Noranside House itself was originally constructed along with later editions added including The Stable Block, Walled Garden and Gardener's Cottage. The site in total measures approximately 53 acres... ...The main focal point of the development is the striking, 'B' listed Noranside House which was constructed and extended in the late 18th century, believed to be designed by Dundee architectural practice, Maclaren, Sons and Souter. There are 4 separate access roads to the development, which provides clear distinctive entrances. (Source: onthemarket.com)

Late 18th century 5-bay villa; flanking bays added 1799; Maclaren, Sons and Souter, circa 1914 addition to rear and alterations for sanatorium use; mid-late 20th century alterations. 2 storey and attic, 9 bay (arranged 1-1-5-1-1), rectangular plan, symmetrical classical house in large estate, with pedimented and pilastered central section and slightly advanced pedimented end pavilions. Harled with raised painted margins; architraved openings, straight pilastered quoins. Base course; corniced eaves course; blocking course. (Source: historicenvironment.scot).

HMP Noranside together with HMP Castle Huntley jointly make up the HMP Open Estate. HMP Noranside is an open prison holding low supervision adult male prisoners serving 18 months and over, including life sentence prisoners, who have been assessed as suitable to serve part of their sentence in open conditions. Noranside holds a small number of prisoners convicted of sexual offences. (Source: thelawpages.com)

The proposal to close Noranside was first announced by SPS in December 2010. Given the strict criteria now applied in the interests of public safety in the selection of offenders before they move to the Open Estate, the numbers qualifying to go to Open conditions have reduced and the facility at Noranside is now surplus to requirements. The facility is not suitable to house any other type of prisoner without substantial investment. (Source: familiesoutside.org.uk)

A dog has been found on the premises in the kitchen. SSPCA has also left a note with todays' date on it, on one of the windows, so they are aware of it.

Very nice pictures, always interesting to see the confines of a Cat D Jail, SPS run things a little different though to us down here in England. I remember seeing those Obs Panels become damaged easily, and the windows aswell...You can tell the cons got bored easily lol.
