Just a ruin now however you can see what an amazing building this once was. A hotel many years ago it's such a shame it's fallen into disrepair. It lies on the the banks of the Clyde and would be a lovely hotel spa location.

Such a shame this lovely old building has fallen to rack and ruin. I imagine it was quite something in its day. Would be lovely restored

I visited with my partner and 2 dogs on a lovely sunny afternoon. It's a very bumpy road to get to the building so slow driving is essential if you want the wheels to stay on the car lol! You can park right at it...More

Its not really a visitor attraction, its just a ruined house on the Banks of the River Clyde. I am old enough to remember when it was occupied and the gardens were well maintained and lovely and our Church used to get permission to hold...More
