James Couper, a local paper manufacturer commissioned the building of Holmwood House in 1857. By 1858 it was complete, designed by Alexander 'Greek' Thomson and widely thought to be his finest domestic work. Richly ornamented with neo-classical motifs and acres of surrounding greenery, the house is a symbol of how mercantile wealth grew to compete with aristocratic inheritance during this fascinating period in history.
Glasgow is a vibrant cultural hub, home to world-class art exhibitions, pioneering theatre practitioners and Scotland's national ballet company. Holmwood is ten minutes away from Glasgow city centre by train, with a walk of ten minutes to the station.
