Cowdon Hall

Cowdon (or Cowden) Hall in East Renfrewshire comprises the remains of an impressive 19th century designed landscape that included a mansion, extensive glass houses and a boating pond.  The mansion was demolished in the latter part of the 20th century but good evidence of the landscape and garden features remain.  Evidence of the architects of the mansion and also the glass house installation is proving more elusive.
