Scope and Content View of the court of offices at Castle Toward from the south, Argyll and Bute Castle Toward was built in two stages. The original house was erected in 1820 for Kirkman Finlay, a wealthy Glasgow merchant. In 1920-4 the west section of the house was added for Andrew Coats, a member of the Paisley thread-making family. Hamilton designed the court of offices in the same Gothic castellated style as the house, which he had designed in 1820. This two-storeyed building has small battlemented towers at the corners and a larger turreted tower to the left of the main block. The Glasgow architect David Hamilton (1768-1843) designed the original house, which was one of his more conventional designs. A century later, the house was altered and extended by the London architect Francis Deas (1862-1951) using the same style. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
