Scope and Content View of Castle Toward from the north, 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. The north façade is dominated by a tower which is octagonal at the upper storey and has a battlemented parapet. The chimney-stacks are also octagonal. The original section of the house lies to the left, while the most recent part is on the right. The architect David Hamilton (1768-1843) designed the original house in a Gothic castellated style in 1820. It was one of his more conventional designs. A century later, the house was altered and extended by Francis Deas (1862-1951) using the same style. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
