Had a wee visit here recently, 2nd attempt due to not being able to find way in first time. Thanks to a fellow member for messaging me. History below from Wiki

When the hospital was opened on 1 July 1866, it was known as the Fife and Kinross District Asylum.[3] 159 patients were recorded on the roster although it was built to accommodate up to 200. The first chief physician, John Batty Tuke, pioneered the hospitals "open door" policy and helped change traditional methods of psychiatric care. Due to eventual overcrowding, the hospital was extended in 1896. Costing over £20,000, the extension increased the patient capacity to 600 and a further two new hospital wings were also built in 1905 due to the increasing number of patients.[2]

The creation of the NHS in 1948 completely re-organised the British health system and its hospitals. With the introduction of the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1947 the name of the hospital changed from 'The Fife and Kinross District Asylum' to 'Stratheden Hospital' on 7 July 1948.[2]

A leading Child and Family Psychiatry DepartmentEdit
1960 saw the arrival of Dr Douglas Haldane, an energetic and recently appointed young consultant child psychiatrist.[4] He had the novel idea of calling his department "Child and Family Psychiatry", a name that was to catch on elsewhere. His unit was located at 'Playfield House' and was opened in the grounds of the hospital. As the label implied, it catered for children, adolescents and their families.[5] Eventually, in 1975 two purpose-built buildings were set aside for the in-patient care for whole family groups, along the lines of the Cassel Hospital, south of the border.[6][7] The other consultant child psychiatrist appointed to the hospital was Dr Simon Lindsay, who had been a trainee of the distinguished child analyst Melanie Klein. Lindsay was said to have been the only direct Kleinian in the whole of Scotland.[8].

I really enjoyed this wee visit.

Excellent report, nice to see the place hasn't been extensively trashed as is usually the case after being empty for so long, hopefully will stay that way for further generations to enjoy.

Open doors, powers still on, barely anyone about to see you.

One word of warning ⚠

I know myself for when I work at another psychiatric hospital is that if you were out for a cigarette at night and seen torches flickering in an old derelict bit you’d deffo call onsite security.

DEFENETELY DONT GO WITH A TORCH AT NIGHT this would be the thing that kills this and gets the door sealed up.
