Schaw House

When I was young I went to visit my granda who was in this place , but never knew why.. i had tried to find out but thought it was Shaw Home... I accidentally came across this today. and found it quite interesting..

The place has been converted to plush flats. I used to do deliveries there. In dark winter nights it was as spooky as hell. Big empty corridors. I keep thinking of the scene in The Shining where the lifts open and all the blood spills out. Was never there in daylight so can't say what it was like during the day.

That was a bit of luck, Calamity.  
When I was a wean, I was in Lenzie Convalescent Home and it had the same eerie atmosphere.  The fact that they closed the solid wooden shutters in the bedroom at night, and that the room became pitch dark as a result didn't help.
