Hutcheson's Hall Glasgow Scotland

Sunday, March 22, 2009

This morning, I decided to cycle down to Ingram Street, Glasgow to view Hutcheson's Hall, a heritage building which was originally a hospital founded by George and Thomas Hutcheson of Lambhill in 1639 and 1641 and subsequently rebuilt in 1805. Externally, there is an impressive 1805 facade complete with statues of the founders from an earlier building.

I was motivated to visit the site following press comment that the Hall is one of the properties under care of National Trust for Scotland which is scheduled to be a casualty of a cost cutting exercise.

The Hall has been available for conferences and other function but is now on the market seeking a long-term tenant.

Inside is a magnificent staircase which leads to a Grand Hall.
