Activity The Isle of Arran War Memorial Hospital, Lamlash, originated in 1919 with the formation of a committee to provide a cottage hospital as a memorial to the men from Arran who lost their lives in the war. The architect?s plans were approved in 1920 and the building was formally opened two years later. It acquired a separate maternity ward in 1930 and during the Second World War was much involved in the care of civilian and military casualties. Until the inception of the National Health Service in 1948 it was run by a local Board of Management. Thereafter it passed to the control of the Board of Management for Isle of Arran Hospitals, and from 1974 to that of the North Ayrshire and Arran District of Ayrshire and Arran Health Board.
