Site Management (5 December 1990)

16th century with 18th century "Gothic" Symmetrical plan and elevation with turrets and battlements. Drip moulds over windows. (Historic Scotland)

Originally known as Clarkstone, Avondale was gothicised in the 18th century. Owned by the Duke of Hamilton, the proprietor in the early 19th century was William Logan. It was owned from 1922 by the Salveston family until being commandeered during WW2 as used as a Polish hospital. (Dean & Miers)


Photographic Survey (28 August 2017)

Avondale House has been photographed through the Threatened Building survey programme following a fire at the site. The fire damage is extensive, removing the roof and gutting the interior, consequently the photographic survey had to be limited to the exterior.

Visited by IA & ZB HES (Survey & Recording) 28 August 2017.
