Many thanks, Dexter - I now know where Killearn Hospital was. I am not quite sure how I recorded a message as a 'guest' as I have been a member for a number of years.
Killearn looks like a very pretty little village and if I had thought about it when I was visiting Stirling last year, I would have made a detour to check it out. There's not much of the hospital left now but it must have been quite new when my mother was there in 1953. Sadly, the staff were not able to save her. We lived in Maryhill at the time and I have no idea how my Dad managed to get there to visit.
I have had a quick look around the links you mentioned but will look again when I have more time. Thanks once again for your help.
I live in killearn im sure if u go down the family who own the land which the old hospital may let you have a look around although im not cetain. the hospital was built for ww2 and was used right up untill 1973 or somthing! there are still many of the bulidings there as they are not allowed to be taken down because of dangerous chemicals and aspesdos in the roofs! You should go down and have a look the next time you are in the area it is a gorgous place.
