This detail is from the pediment of the main building: NS3978 : Strathleven House (main building). For the whole house, and for information about it, see NS3978 : Strathleven House, and other pictures linked from there.

See NS3978 : Strathleven House: heraldic details for a view of these details in context; as explained there, the Cochrane arms are on the left, and those of the Graham family on the right, with their respective mottoes: "Virtute et Labore" and "Ne Oublier".
Strathleven House

The area in which the house stands was once known as Kirkmichael. Here, Levenside House, as it was originally known, was built c.1700 for William Cochrane of Kilmaronock; it is Palladian in style, and is probably the work of James Smith. The name of the house and estate was later changed again, from Levenside to Strathleven. The Strathleven Estate came to be very extensive; one portion, containing the house, was compulsorily purchased in 1947 by the Board of Trade, and, shortly thereafter, was developed into the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate (see Link for this). The remaining, more outlying, parts of the Strathleven Estate were sold off in lots in 1950.
