Glen O’ Dee Hospital – Sunday 2nd March 2014

Our latest explore, the old Glen O’ Dee Hospital in Banchory. The original building was built in 1900 and started its life as Nordrach on Dee Hospital, a sanctuary for tuberculosis patients. When TB died down it served as a luxury hotel (when it became “Glen O’ Dee”), but was taken over during the war to serve as a billet for troops. It reprised its role in contagious diseases when the typhoid epidemic hit nearby Aberdeen in the 1960s, but its last use was as a residential home for the elderly. The original building closed in 1998, when a new purpose built building was built on the same site.

The original building has been featured on the BBC’s Restoration programme, but it has sat empty and deteriorating since 1998. It’s very much of it’s time and the outer colouring is beautiful, even if the interiors are showing the lack of care. Hope you enjoy.
