The former Coltness Gatehouse
The former Coltness Gatehouse
This building is situated at the corner of Kenilworth Avenue (on the left) and the main road (at the lower-right corner) through Wishaw.

[The latter is called Main Street here, but becomes Stewarton Street further to the SE; it follows the course of a Roman road.]

The gatehouse was built in the mid-19th century for the Houldsworths, a wealthy Yorkshire family of mill owners who had acquired property here. For further details, see the following listed building report: LinkExternal link (at Historic Environment Scotland).
