Cambusnethan Priory

Located in the Clyde Valley, 1¼ miles (2 km) southwest of Wishaw, Cambusnethan Priory has fine views over the river. It was built in 1819 to the designs of architect James Gillespie Graham (1776 - 1855) and is said to be one of his finest works.

Cambusnethan is an elegant, large Gothic mansion, created in a monastic style for Robert Lockhart of Castlehill. It was sold on the death of Sir Muir Sinclair-Lockhart in 1985, although the family still own the surrounding estates. The house now lies derelict, burned out and vandalised, in great danger of complete collapse.
