Pollok House belongs to the National Trust for Scotland and is in Pollok Park which was gifted to the people of Glasgow, along with the house, in 1966 by Lady Anne Maxwell. The house was built in 1752 and extended during the Victorian and Edwardian periods. As well as a wealth of furniture from these times, the house has literally hundreds of paintings, mostly by Spanish artists, including El Greco's Lady in a Fur Wrap. It is worth visiting the house just to see this painting alone but check first that it is there because it is sometimes, as at the moment, on tour to galleries around the world.
The basement corridor was the servants' corridor and now has a souvenir shop and a restuarant in what was the original kitchen.
