Early 19th century fragments from Linthouse mansion -
which was in style of David Hamilton - re-sited 1921
following demolition of house. Fragments comprise Ionic
portico with paired curved flights of steps, segmental-
arched tripartite doorway with fanlight, parts of
flanking walling.
Enclosed by iron fence.

Statement of Interest

The segmental-arched tripartite opening has numerous

parallels in Hamilton's work (eg Moore Park); and the

steps compare with eg St Fillans (now the Manor Park

Hotel, near Skelmorlie). Inscribed plaque gives details.
