NS3478 : Geilston Halls

taken 13 years ago, near to Geilston, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Geilston Halls
Geilston Halls
Built from 1889-90 (Honeyman and Keppie), this building is used for various community functions. It is viewed here from Main Road.

The building replaces an earlier structure which was built by the Geils family (of Geilston), and which was destroyed by fire. An inscription on a gable-head (the one above the entrance on the right) reads "erected 1889 in memory of JTG": NS3477 : Geilston Halls: detail. On the person commemorated there, see NS3478 : Old wellhead, Geilston Gardens and NS3477 : The Geils family burial ground. The inscription above the entrance on the left is simply "The Geilston Hall".

See NS3477 : Geilston Hall, Cardross for another picture of the building.
