Auchterarder House was built by Lieutenant Colonel James Hunter in 1831, who commissioned Scotland’s famous architect, William Burn to design the house. In 1876 the house was bought by James Reid who became the sole partner in Europe's largest locomotive manufacturing company, Neilson, Reid & Co of the Hydepark Locomotive Works in Springburn. He decided to extravagantly refurbish the house in 1887 using Sir John James Burnet as the architect. Much of his additions still remain today including a marble bathroom. James Reid was a great art collector and built up a very impressive collection of works, much of which is now in the collections of Glasgow Museums. After James Reid's ownership, the house became a hotel, during which time former US President, Ronald Reagan stayed. The current family bought the house in 2003 and they have beautifully renovated the house keeping the traditional aspects and mixing them with modern facilities and the extreme comfort it now offers.
