A Sunnyside Chronicle

This website is dedicated to the history and memories of Sunnyside Royal Hospital, Scotland's oldest Asylum, which recently closed its doors for the final time. The layout is based on the booklet "A Sunnyside Chronicle 1781-1981" Which was written by Principal Psychologist Dr A. S. Presly and produced to mark the hospital's bicentenery in 1981. Most of the text in the historical summary of the Asylum are extracts from Dr Presley's booklet, a full copy of which can be viewed in Montrose library.

The booklet details the history of the asylum from its original site in Montrose up until it's Bicentenary year in 1981 when Sunnyside housed approximately 400 patients.
