Pollock House, located three miles south of Glasgow, has been home to Maxwells since the mid-13th century. The present house was built around 1740 on the site of three earlier family structures, and it was extended in 1890 by Sir John Stirling Maxwell. Given to the City of Glasgow in 1966 by Mrs. Anne Maxwell Macdonald, the house and its internationally famed collection of paintings, porcelain and furnishings is maintained for public tours by the National Trust for Scotland. Set within the beautiful Pollok Country Park, the site includes a restaurant which serves morning coffee, a light lunch, and afternoon tea (with home baking!). It also has a gift shop where visitors can purchase mementos and keepsakes.
