Dalnair House
Dalnair House
This building (built around 1884) was formerly used as a nursing home, and is seen here from the footpath and cycle route. Its architects were Clarke & Bell, whose architectural practice included George Bell I and II (father and son), and William Clarke.

A later picture shows the building with more of its surroundings: NS4886 : Dalnair House.

My thanks to Elinor Combes, who tells me that "in 1972 Dalnair House was purchased by British Steel Corporation as a Management Training College for General Steels Division. The modern additional block was built in 1974/75 to house the college attendees, who had hitherto been accommodated in hotels from Bearsden to Drymen and had to be transported daily to and from Dalnair."

Thanks also to Gray for bringing the following to my attention: Dalnair House is no longer in use as a nursing home: in February of 2006, an application to create 11 flats within the main building of Dalnair House, and to demolish a 1970s extension to that house and then create 15 flats in a new building on the same site, was given approval (with conditions); however, as of May 2011, no such work had taken place, and the building was in poor condition.
