Geilston House
Geilston House
There has been a house here from the 1600's but the earliest part visible today dates from 1766. It was built for James Donald, who made his fortune from importing tobacco from Virginia.
In 1805 it was sold to the Geils family, and later in 1922 to James Hendry, from Glasgow who was an iron merchant. His daughter lived at the house until she bequeathed it to the National Trust in 1983. There was a condition that her companion, Margaret Bell should live there for the rest of her days. She died in 1997 and the gardens were opened to the public in 1998.
