Polnoon Lodge
Polnoon Lodge
Polnoon Lodge was originally built as a hunting lodge in the early eighteenth century by Alexander, ninth Earl of Eglinton. Following the sale of the Eaglesham Estate in 1844 to Allan and James Gilmour, the lodge was used as the estate office for a short period of time. Later on Allan Gilmour's mother and sisters occupied the lodge for a time into the 1860s before being let. By the 1920s the lodge operated as a temperance hotel and later on as a boarding house. An annexe was used a meeting room for local groups and societies. The lodge lay empty by the 1960s and was renovated by Renfrew County Council as housing for the elderly. The restoration work won a Civic Trust Award in 1971.

The Earls had another hunting lodge a few miles away at Cleughearn in East Kilbride Parish.
