Leanchoil

Officially opened in April 1892, Leanchoil Hospital was built from donations and subscriptions from the local people of Forres. Sadly, it closed its doors as a hospital in November 2018 having served the community of Forres for over 125 years. This iconic listed building holds a special place in the lives of many local people, and this has driven the vision of Leanchoil Trust to transfer ownership back to the community. The Trustees are working with NHS Grampian on a community asset transfer which will see the hospital restored and repurposed as a state-of-the-art health and wellbeing centre and veterans’ activity centre for the community of Forres and beyond.
