Holmwood House, Glasgow

Holmwood House is Alexander 'Greek' Thomson's finest domestic design. This family home was built in 1857-8 for James Couper who, with his brother Robert, owned Millholm Paper Mills on the banks of the River Cart. The house stood in (what was then) the village of Cathcart. The architectural style of the house is a picturesque adaptation of the classical Greek style. The house passed through several different owners and, for some years, was a convent school. Holmwood was brought into the care of the Trust in 1994 and, since then, there has been a restoration programme of the building and its interiors.
