Colzium House

A B-listed mansion house in the grounds of Colzium Lennox Estate in Kilsyth, Colzium House was built in 1783 and enlarged in 1861. It was gifted to the community in 1937 but much of the original building was demolished in the late 1940s due to dry rot. A fine Victorian facade and wings survive and this houses a local history museum. It is surrounded by planned gardens, with collections of conifers and shrubs, and also includes a walled garden. Nearby there is a Mediaeval ice-house and the remains of the 15th C. Colzium Castle.

The house and estate are now in the care of North Lanarkshire Council.
