Caverhill Sanatorium is seen at Kirkton Manor, a couple of miles SW of Peebles on this map.

hi
It would have been Caverhill Farm, Kirkton Manor, near Peebles. A friend's sister lives there now. It is on the Wemyss & March Estate.

I think it closed in 1935. I have a book somewhere with more info so will try and locate it!
