Thank you to Camille Craig, Donaldson's College, for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above of Donaldson's new school that opened on a hill top overlooking  Linlithgow, West Lothian in 2008.

"Donaldson’s entered a new era in January 2008 as the highly specialised residential and day school opened the doors on its brand new premises in Linlithgow, West Lothian.

Donaldson’s is a national Grant Aided Special School (GASS) supported by the Scottish Government and can accommodate a maximum roll of 120 pupils aged from 2 ˝ years to 19 years including up to 24 residential pupils.

The school was famously located in Edinburgh’s west end for more than 150 years but the historic buildings were no longer fit for purpose.  The relocation therefore provided Donaldson’s with the unique opportunity to completely design a new school and optimise the learning environment for deaf and speech and language impaired pupils."
