Spittal Hotel Fire

The Spittal Hotel was devastated by a fire in 1959.  Dennis Winton of the Dalmunzie Hotel managed to capture this tragic event as it unfolded.

The hotel burnt down again in 2014. As yet the archive does not have any pictures. There are currently plans to develop the hotel site by the community.

Flames devastate both floors of the Spittal.
