A short video this week as we were heading out on an early explore, it was formerly a lodge to Birkwood Castle, built for the McKirdy family, which was purchased in 1920 by Lanarkshire Council for use as institution for juvenile mentally handicapped patients. The site remained in use as a hospital until 2005.
This was a permission visit to Birkwood Castle Hospital, currently in the process of renovation.
If you would like to visit please contact email@example.com to arrange it in advance. At the moment there is an online / TV series being filmed there so please be patient when requesting a tour.
