A-Group with Torrance House, Torrance House Lodge, Torrance House Stable, Torrance House Stable Court and statue of Sir John Falstaff. The gatelodge stands at the entrance to the old Torrance Estate that once belonged to the Stuart Family. The estate is now the Calderglen Country Park, but the main house and lodge remain in private ownership. In 1879 Colonel Harrington Stuart remodelled the main house in the Scots Baronial style. The lodge appears to have been built as part of this scheme.
