Old Photograph Garscadden House Drumchapel Scotland


Old photograph of Garscadden House in Drumchapel in Glasgow, Scotland. The Fleming family owned Garscadden Estate, in the 14th century, after which it fell heir to Sir Robert Erskine, and then to the Galbraiths in the 15th century. It was in 1664 that Archibald Colquhoun of Camstradden, near Luss by Loch Lomond, became it’s latest owner. In 1938 Garscadden House was acquired by Glasgow Corporation and evacuees were sent there during the Second World War. It was destroyed by fire in 1959.
