Provand’s Lordship

Posted by Jackie on July 6, 2008

Provand’s Lordship is the oldest house in Glasgow – it was built in 1471. It was part of the St Nicholas’ Hospital development, and originally it probably housed clergy and support staff from the Cathedral. It’s now a museum. This photo is of the rear of the house, and also shows St Nicholas Gardens, which were opened in the 90s (if I remember the sign correctly!) by the Princess Royal.

    Again I am surprised at it’s location. It looks pretty good considering it’s the oldest.
