Looking Eastwards

In the foreground Bearsden villas and the turrets of Shaw House, dating from the 19th Century. It is a large B-listed ‘Tudor Gothic’ building, 4 storeys high. Built by the Schaw family and gifted to Glasgow as a convalescence home attached to the city’s Royal Infirmary. By World War II the hospital was used as an overflowed unit for patients requiring urgent medical attention. Now it is converted into 23 luxury open-plan flats.The Gothic tower is an individual property in itself with rooms on three levels and a roof garden. I can't imagine what it would cost!
