Old Photograph Craigmaddie House Scotland

Old photograph of Craigmaddie House near Milngavie, Scotland. Milngavie is a Scottish town in East Dunbartonshire, on the Allander Water, at the northwestern edge of Glasgow. Craigmaddie was held by the powerful Galbraiths of Baldernock in the middle ages, and there are ruins of an old castle. Glasgow's Lord Provost, James Black, purchased the estate at the end of the 18th century and built a cottage there. He subsequently built the mansion, which was extended by a subsequent owner. Henry Gordon, who acquired the estate in 1842, made Craigmaddie the manor house for the Dougalston estate and he, too, made additions to the building.
