Ross Priory

Ross Priory - an early 19th-century country house and an example of Gothic architecture. 

From the 14th century the estate, known as The Ross, 

was owned by a branch of the Buchanan family of Buchanan Castle, who built a house here in 1695.

The present house was completed in 1816. 

The term "priory" does not imply ecclesiastical provenance, but is simply a 19th-century romantic affectation.

 Sir Walter Scott spent time at Ross Priory. 

In 1973 it was sold to Strathclyde University and now serves as a recreational and conference centre.

Ross Priory is a category "A" listed building,

The grounds are included on the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland
