Former Hospital Administration Building, Kingseat
The Kingseat site was the first "village hospital" in the UK, inspired by European examples. It treated casualties from Atlantic Convoys in WWII and was later used as a residential mental-health facility.
For more on its interesting history, see: LinkExternal link (warning: large file, 4MByte). The road has the impressive name of King Malcolm Drive, because King Malcolm reputedly stopped in the area after defeating Macbeth at the battle of Lumphanen in 1057.
