As there are many documented visits to this site I will quickly skim through the history;
-Thornton fever hospital was opened in 1902 as an isolation hospital
-Later on it was used as a metal health institution for children, under the name Strathmore hospital
-Upon a new hospital being built in Dunfermline in 1967 it was vacated.

Now onto the report :)

After having a bit of a walk from thornton we could evidently see part of the hospital from the road:

After easy access through the front we were in:

Something about the light inside the hospital buildings made it so photogenic:D

Overall a nice wee relaxed explore, definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing easy going explore.

Oops forgot to add in the bit about it being converted into a children's home in 1968, which then 2 years later was shut down because the owner went bankrupt. Subsequently the strathore lodge was converted into a hotel, and changes owners multiple times. Due to lack of buissiness it shut down in 1998.
Hope that helps
