Scotland’s Gardens Scheme Open Garden: The Bishop’s House

25 June 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Bishop’s House is one of six villas in Kilmacolm designed by James Salmon in 1905. Come and explore the grounds as they open their doors to the public for Scotland’s Gardens Scheme.
It was originally named Miyanoshta, but renamed when it became the official residence of the Catholic Bishops of Paisley (1948-1993). The house is now a family home and much care has been taken in preserving the house and garden, both in landscaping and planting, which remain mostly as designed by Salmon. The house sits at the top of the garden and is framed by mature beech trees. There is a burn running down the side of the property (children should be supervised).
Directions: PLEASE ACCESS THE GARDEN FROM THE GLENCAIRN ROAD ENTRANCE. Turn off the A761 in the centre of Kilmacolm onto Houston Road or Porterfield Road for access to the garden on Glencairn Road. Follow SGS signage. Parking on-road. McGill’s buses run through Kilmacolm on the A761.
£5 entry / children free
