Geilston House90 viewsGeilston House in Cardross, former home of Miss Elizabeth Hendry and Miss Margaret Bell, now owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Dating from 1666 or earlier, it began as a modest thatched laird's house, was expanded to become a villa, and finally a decorated cottage linked to a walled garden. The entire house appears to have been thatched until the early 19th century. Its extensive 200 year-old garden is a popular tourist attraction. Photo by Stewart Noble.Mar 02, 2020
