Saving Leanchoil for the Community

Leanchoil is a treasured landmark in Forres, Morayshire which served the community for over 125 years. Once a bustling cottage hospital, its doors closed in 2018 and has since laid empty. Leanchoil Trust is working to bring Leanchoil back into community use and create an innovative health and wellbeing facility, breathing new life into this special place.

The Leanchoil Project is ambitious and significant. This unique listed building and beautiful grounds and woodlands will offer activities and services to support wellbeing, social engagement, volunteering, employment and learning bringing enduring benefit to the people of Forres and its rural communities.

Our community has shown its desire to save Leanchoil and in partnership we can create a place that will serve us once again.
