Archaeology Notes

NS58SW 20 centred 5100 8485

Killearn Hospital, formerly Killearn Emergency Medical Hospital is situated on the SW side of the A81 road E of Killearn House (NS58SW 10). The hospital complex consists of many wooden chalet type buildings with verandahs, all now very dilapidated. Amongst the group are several rough cast buildings including some Motor Transport (MT) sheds.

In the post-war period the hospital became the Neurological/Medical/Surgical unit for the West of Scotland prior to transfer as the Institute of Neurological Sciences to the Southern General Hospital, Govan in 1970s.

At present some of the buildings away from the road are still in use, but many others are deteriorating and the entrance is blocked and there are 'keep out signs'
