Architect: William Burn

0093

Designed with two central octagonal towers from which wings for the patients extended, Burns work at Crichton was a very ambitious project that was ultimately not completed. Only one of the towers and wings were built, in red sandstone. Now part of the Crichton University Campus, a remote campus for the University of Glasgow, University of the West of Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway College and the Open University. The site also includes a hotel and conference centre, and Crichton Memorial Church, set in a 100-acre park.
