right just did some research and found out that my gran was right ochil hills was used to house people with tb in the 1950s but before this it was known as ochil hills sanatorium for thos ewith mental health problems. will add more as i find more out!

Just for the record, in the late 1800's Sanatorium was a general phrase (at least here in the US,) used to describe what we today would call "Health Camps."

Essentially peoplw who were or thought they were ill would go to these places to get well. It was usually an extended visit of several months and presided over by a doctor who was usually practising the latest in kook medical science. If you've ever seen the movie, or read the book "Road to Wellville," that's exactly what they were.

There are at least four of these types of places within 100 miles of me, all of them have "haunted" stories. Two are currently owned by the same company and have been turned into Hotels, McMenamins Grand Hotel, and Edgefield Brewery, are the two locations.

Another one did actually serve as a mental hospital during the 60's, and currently serves as offices to whoever will rent them. (About 50% of the building is rented. so the stories and going on's might not be that bad.)

The 4th burned clean to the ground in the 50's under "mysterious" circumstances. But it was by far the most haunted of them all apparently.

BTW - the smoke stack you saw, was probally a coal plant. There are still a few around here still, they were used to produce electricity and heat for that paticular building. Pretty critical for a hospital, especially one as big as that to need it's own power supply, especially when it's far from a large city. (Which was very common back in the day.)

Hi guys
I have done a bit of research on this place as i was due to do some filming up there. The fire had nothing to do with it being torn down it only helped the process along a bit. The council has had plans to knock it down for a while now and have sold the plot of land to a housing development company.
Would anyone in their right mind want to live there!!!
  
I found the place quite scary and when we got home and downlaoded our photographs approx 25% had orbs in them, from research into the subject the conditions we had whilst up there was perfect for ghost spotting.
Will attach them soon so you can all see!!

I am really gutted the place has been torn down as it is a really spooky place. I really wish so many stupid kids had wrecked it so much because there were parts i didnt get to despite making it up to the third floor and being able to get over to the windows, no easy task i can tell you!

It would have been great to see the building in all its spendour as it was an amazing building, no such luck now!!

Orby

hey peeps,grin2.gif i was thinking, wouldnt it be cool if they made a new ochil? with the original plans for the hospital and made it EXACTLY the way it was? ochil was a landmark outside milnathort, they could have restored it if someone hadnt have burned the place down. i think it would be dead cool to build a new Ochill Hills Sanitarium!   thumbup.gif

View Post



No, it wouldn't.  Why?  Because Ochil Hills Hospital (OHH) is old school.  You can't replicate that.

Anyway.  I first visited OHH in 1998.  I was 14 then.  It was everything that has been described in this thread.  It was exciting, scary, fun etc.  

I remember the first time I went up, it had been graffiti'd etc, but it wasn't THAT bad.  

The last time I visited was in 1999, I think that was when the main entrance was burnt up.

It used to be a bit sacred, almost unknown...only known to a select few...well thats what we used to think.

I've been everywhere in the hospital.  The best place without a doubt (and not been mentioned!!!) is the ROOF.  On a lovely summers day you can see for miles...just watch you don't trip!   Another great part is just before you go to the roof there is a room FILLED with signatures etc...great reading them from the 80's/90's etc.

I used to go up with 2 friends, of whom I don't speak to anymore...and probably never will.  It was great fun, we used to buy cheap lighters at the market and go burn stuff up at the hospital and piss about (all for fun of course).

I live in Kinross, roughly less than 2 miles away from the hospital.  If anyone wants directions, i can give you them...there is a few ways you can get to the hospital.  I recommend you park your car at the bottom of the gate and walk upto the hospital  (yes walk you lazy ****).  I would suggest if you can is park in Kinross/Milnathort and cycle up on a nice warm day.  

UPDATE :  I visited the site.  The Hospital has been demolished...all that remains is a large pile of rubble.

"

And amazinly NOTHING states that the hospital has been demolished...No where, I've been researching.

Ok, while searching for information on the Ochil hospitals, i found this topic. I realise it has been a while since it was first posted and perhaps no one posts in it anymore, i would just like to share my experience of visiting.

I went with my Dad a year and a half or so ago, we had first been the night before, however it was far too dark to explore it then. So i came back the next morning. While walking around the place i must say i felt the exact same way as the topic creator, I felt shivery.

One second i would be walking around, then suddenly the temperature would drop, and it would become very cold, then ten seconds later it was fine again. This was a warm day as well, so i dont know whether there was some ghostly presence or something.

I also felt the exact same way when going down into the basement part that was underground, which i presumed would be the mortuary. The temperature down there was unbelievably freezing, and i didnt want to go down into it any further.

If anyone wants to give me some information on this place, plus tell me of their experiences, email me at fall_of_the_grey_winged_one@hotmail.com. Or add me to MSN messenger.

I would really like to discuss this place with people who have also been there. I wish that they did not demolish this place, i would really like to visit it again. Does anyone know if those huts the topic creator described are still there, i want to go and investigate the area again. And if anyone has any photographs of the hospital i would very much like to see them.

Oh well thanks alot:)

Well now,I know it's rude to bump into someone else's thread,but since the hospital is gone and will never be perfectly replaced...
Perhaps someone will be interested in hearing about the strange place that I live near??
I'm not saying it now,'cause I wanna make sure someone will be interested.I won't keep it in this thread,maybe I'll make one for it or email someone.
I will say there's been alot of pain here...you don't even have to be right next to the enterance to feel the anger of the other spirit,either.
So many...so many...

... for a while, I saw, but with how terrible an exaggeration ! I saw the lips of the black-robed judges. They appeared to me white -- whiter than the sheet upon which I trace these words -- and thin even to grotesqueness; thin with the intensity of their expression of firmness, of immovable resolution, of stern contempt of human torture. I saw that the decrees of what to me was fate were still issuing from those lips.

hi all

i have also been to ochil hills hopital as i live about 10 miles from it. I wouldn't know it was there as no one talks about it but i met a guy at college who took me up there. I wasn't interested at first but then a year later i wanted to research it. I looked on the internet for hours looking for at least one thing about it and then I did. It was a doctors report on a patient who was at the hospital, as it was a sanitation for people wh had TB.

After I knew this i visited it regulary, with my friends and eventually had the courage to go down to the basement. I think this was the scariest time of my life. It was full of boilers and old machinery, we only had one torch and had the feeling that someone was behind us. Then as we were coming in to the light at the other side we say a small door, which looked like a cupboard. I decieded to open it. I looked one way and it was a long thin corrider, with insulation all around it and then I looked the other way and it was the same, it went on for what looked like miles and thats when my heart nearly stopped. Because these two corriders where underneath the house I thought that everytime I turned my head something was behind me. If anyone else has been down there and went underneath please tell me, because I would never do it

The furthest I have been up is the second floor. The way i went up is if you went in the back you were in a room with a hospiatl bed and through the corrider you found stairs. As I went up I got more and more scared that the floor was going to fall through. I could only get into one room on the second floor and that was the toilet wgere you had a view of the big boiler on the left.

devil.gif

In one of the room we foung an old piece of paper entitled 'how to tie your shoelaces' with step by step instructions, but I think someone planked it there to be wide.

One weekend a group of us decided to camp there. This was only after weeks of visits to familiarise ourselves with the place. The only thing that made this night scary was the other people who came at two in the morning. I have been to this place hundreds of times and knew that on the second floor it is impossible to get to the other side of the building. But these 'visitors' were all in the end room with their torches blaring out of the window. That was it for us as we were too scared and decided to go home.

[font=Century Gothic][color=#CC33CC]Hi there everyone!

Me and my friends had JUST heard about this hospital last week so we decided to go up tonight, only to get a phone call from a friend saying it had been knocked down. So we were just wondering if anyone else knew of any deserted scary places we could go in Scotland (FIFE preferably!) Lol. We're fae Glenrothes so so anywhere near here would be great! Thanx.

Luv Claire

I have this really strong need to say something about the people that died at that hospital.
There are so many of you ghost seekers that have been there.  Could you possibly get together, or at least some of you, and maybe have some kind of a ceremony or something to acknowledge the people that died there, and what they went through?  Maybe this could put some of the spirits to rest.  I feel like they would want people to know what happened to them, because they were important human beings like all of us.  It feels like they were just discarded and need to be acknowledged, and given some love to peacefully move on.
I'm in the USA, or I would help with it.  If you need help with the words, or anything, I can help you with that.


Live In Love- Lady Warrior Ravynwynn
