In October 2011 we paid a visit to Rosslynlee Hospital near Edinburgh, which closed completely in 2010.
The main building was erected in 1874 with a number of new ‘wings’ and other buildings added over the years since.
The hospital has since been subject to a number of explorers, metal theives and other such people with it beginning to show signs of their visits.
A few of the newer outbuildings are reachable through a number of glass corridors which reach out from the former main hospital building.
Once within the hospital you will see that a lot of items still remain from its operational days. In one particular room there are a number of unused hospital beds lying in limbo, some of which still have power running to them.
The former gym hall lies fairly empty with a couple of old exercise bikes lying in the corner, a fuse ball table, and table tennis gathering dust. The ceiling of the hall has finally given up and part it of it has collapsed.
The kitchen of the hospital has been stripped out with the exception of the blast chiller which you can see at the back of the room here.
We originally thought these were pressure gauges of some sorts but were then reliably informed that they are in fact density gauges.
In one part of the hospital is the geriatric unit complete with zimmer frames and a certain smell I will probably always associate with it.
Any budding medical students might find these handy.
Within a newer outbuilding was a corridor of small offices with every door handle removed and the rooms emptied.
An urbex explore wouldn’t be complete without a lonely chair shot.
