Visit to Hospitalfield House
| Hospitalfield Trust
Hospitalfield House has experienced many changes since it was first created in 1325. Originally built as a plague and leprosy hospice, in 1850 Patrick Allen-Fraser undertook work to see the building transformed into one of the finest and most highly crafted buildings produced in 19th-century Scotland. Today, the Hospitalfield Trust is an artist residency and project workshop for the promotion of contemporary arts and international exchange.
Upon arrival we will have tea/coffee and shortbread. The party will then be divided into two groups for a conducted tour of the House. Afterwards, there will be a Fork Buffet Lunch with wine.
After lunch, Mr Willie Payne will take us to visit the Fraser of Hospitalfield Memorial Chapel. Before our return to Glasgow we shall visit the nearby House of Pitmuies Gardens.
