Good to explore an Asylum again after a bit of a lull in England! Stratheden is reasonably unmodernised inside other than a suspended ceiling here and there, and most of these are collapsing revealing the tall open skylights most of the larger rooms were built with.The hospital was built as the Fife and Kinross District Lunatic Asylum in July 1866. It has also been known as Cupar Asylum and Springfield Asylum; it has been called Stratheden Hospital since January 1949, after the creation of the NHS .

Quite a bit of stuff left inside too, from sphygmomonometers, old bicycles and our favourite, a home made "weighing chair". I enjoying seeing the dated NHS carpets and sign-age that were once part of the staple diet of exploring.
The finest feature has to be the stunning curved glazed corridor, quite unique and virtually immaculate other than the token peeley paint. Add a splash of Minton tiles and fancy banister here and there and I was sold.
An all round thoroughly enjoyable explore!
