THE HOUSE · THE GROUNDS · THE ARCHITECT · ABOUT THIS SITE
Craigends House was a nineteenth century Scottish Baronial mansion designed by the renowned architect David Bryce in 1857. Situated about ten miles west of Glasgow near the village of Houston, it was one of his largest and most significant country houses. Lived in for over a century by the Cunninghame family, it was mostly demolished in 1971 and a housing estate now covers the site.
