Interesting subject. Down in near [email]Bristol in England there is a place called Hortham mental hospital, it has been shut down for a long time and is just like the place you have mentioned in Scotland. Its all closed off now but that did not stop me and my friends investigating....and staying the night. The first thing that you see once inside is the old guards quarters followed by a long path up towards the main mansion house, which is big and grand in every way. Behind and around the manison is many buildings, small and large. This was all good and scary stuff, our imaginations were going wild with things we were supposedly seeing and hearing....but it was only our imagination running wild as it does in a place like this in the dark hours of the morning. Fantastic place to let your imagination run wil, i can remmber they had padded rooms, cells, a morgue everything, brilliant night all round.

Both are great stories. If there is a next time take some pictures. Would be neat just to see the different things that you are describing! Thanks  for sharing.

Hey folks, found this on the site and thought i would post something. Visited Ochil Hospital with my ex and some of her friends in June 2003. One of the people there was able to contact the spirits (dont know exactly what that is called, sorry, maybe a spirit medium?).

Anyway, beautiful summers night, we parked at the bottom of the hill and walked up the pot hole road. First impressions of the Hospital were that it was so beautiful, but had been badly damaged by vandals.  Took a walk around the place and managed to get up to the 2nd floor. However the spiritualist advised us to leave the room we went into pretty quickly as there was an angry spirit in there.  Tried to get further into the building but the floors were pretty much gone, did notice some mattresses were piled up over the holes, but too risky to go any further.

We did take a walk around the outside of the building and had a look at the small sheds. On our way back to the front we walked past the boiler house. There was a loud bang as something unseen kicked or hit one of the boilers. That was pretty scary especially as we were advised not to go up there.

We went back into the front of the building and downstairs into the underground bit, unsure what this was. Did feel a cold presence down one half of my body and was told something was next to me, but not to be afraid.

After this we carried out a seance in one of the rooms (in the side door, head straight forward and before you turned right at the staircase, there was a room which was pretty well sealed).  Carried out the seance in there, from nowhere an extremely cold wind started swirling around us. I had been sceptical until then, but not anymore.

Left about midnight and walked back down the road, scariest part of the night as we were chased by a farmer who didnt like being woken up all the time.

Just thought i would share this with you all.

Hi All,

Dont know if anyone can help,

I am in the process of building a website and looking for information on the Ochil Hills Sanatorium.

I have been up to the site, before and after the demolition and have some photo’s of the derelict building.

If anyone has any information, photos or videos that I can use, can you please get in contact with me?

God, what a blast from the past.

I was up there a couple of times in 96-97 with a few friends.

We always went up during the day time when we had half days off from college.

Both times I was there the main gate was closed and we walked up the drive past the wee hut that some have mentioned.

The route we took was on a path around the small pond then up to the front of the building.

The times we were there we were able to get all over the building without too much trouble.  

There were only a few areas in which the floor had caved in at that time.  Although the place was partly vandalised, all the windows had been smashed in and the lower ones were boarded up but the insides were starting to look the worse for wear, mostly due to the weather I suppose.

We were able to take the stairs right up to the attic and saw the water storage tanks and the lift control room that sat right above the lift shaft.

Was easy to get down to the basement, but I don't remember a second one.  The one we got to by going through a door and down a narrow staircase that came out next to the basment lift door.

I remember part of the basement being a very long thin almost tunnel that must have run most of the length of the building.

For those that have seen the pics of the front of the building, I have stood in the window thats right at the top between the two mini tower turrets, as I'm sure many of you lot have too.

We also found the kitchen area with all the old massive mass cooking things.  Never seen the like before, or since.

Also found what I assume was the fuel tank room.  Had 2 massive steel tanks in it IIRC.

We also went into one of the hut wards that were off to the right of the main building and were also in the small 2 bed cottage at the very end of the site.

The last time I was there with just one friend and we got caught by the caretakers.  They chased us all over the building and after they had given us a verbal kicking we left but they called the rozzers and both of us ended up being charged with being there with intention to steal.  At the time I couldn't even think what could be sold but I now know the value of scrap metal so it makes it obvious now.

Sad to hear the place burned to the ground because of some ****.  Would have been great to see the place refurbished to its former glory.

I couldn't help out for information, but I had heard of a hospital with that name once before! Spooky that you explored it! I would have LOVED to go.
...Then again, I would be trying to do EVP work and piss-off the spirits... and end up getting hurt again. whistling2.gif

I think I heard the people there really were mistreated, but I'm not sure. Very interesting experience, though! I wonder what the ashes were...?

God, I have to revive this... the only picture links still working are ones of the outside of the hospital, and there's like five.  I want to see the pics all the people promised they'd posted, and updated reports and such even though it's been burned down.  I am half an hour late for my study group because of this thread! xD

I remember visiting my gran at the hospital when I was a child, I'm talking the late 70's, I remember it being very grand and intimidating to a small boy original.gif
I also remember going upstairs in a very old fashioned lift.

Hey everyone,

I know this thread has been pretty dead for a while, but I just wanted you to know that I wrote a dissertation on this history of Open Air TB treatment and the Ochil hills Sanatorium at uni. If anyone has any questions about the OHS I can probably answer them.

And no, it was NEVER a mental hospital.
