The Sunnyside Psychiatric Museum was located in the grounds of the Sunnyside Royal Hospital in Montrose, Angus and was established in 1781. The museum illustrated psychiatric care in Scotland and exhibits included lantern slides, nursing attire, straight jackets, patient's craftwork and Victorian paintings. Closed since 2001, most of the exhibits were moved to local museums in Montrose and Dundee. The father of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the fictional Sherlock Holmes, was a patient at this asylum.
