The College Bow
This arch, which has been relocated twice in recent centuries, is a remnant of St Mary's Collegiate Church, which was built c.1450. See LinkExternal link (at WoSAS) for further details. The College Bow now stands on the eastern side of Dumbarton Municipal Buildings ( Link ). Other, smaller fragments of the Collegiate Church survive: for example, in Glencairn's Greit House ( Link ).
Dumbarton Municipal Buildings
The buildings were erected on College Park (the former grounds of College Park House). The land was bought from the railway company by Lord Overtoun, and gifted by him to the burgh. The buildings, by James Thomson, were officially opened in 1903. The College Bow Link now stands in the grounds, as do a Boer War Memorial Link and a statue of Peter Denny Link
