The Site Of Walkinshaw House
The Site Of Walkinshaw House
Depicted as a raised plateau on 1:25,000 scale mapping, the house was built by renowned architect Robert Adam and stood between 1791 and 1920 when it was demolished for an unknown reason. The RCAHMS Canmore entry at LinkExternal link notes that (in 1907) the house had recently been 'burnt' but was being rebuilt.

Walkinshaw House had a 'wedge-shaped plan...an octagonal tower at each corner, and paired, flat-roofed towers flanking the entrance; all the rooms on the main floor were curved or octagonal'. Source: 'A History of Scottish Architecture: From the Renaissance to the Present Day' Glendinning et al, Edinburgh University Press, 1997.
