Old Photograph Mearns Castle Scotland

Old photograph of Mearns Castle by Newton Mearns located seven miles South West of Glasgow, Scotland. The castle was built by Herbert, Lord Maxwell, under a royal warrant issued in 1449, and remained with the family until the fifth Lord was required by King James VI to deliver it up to the crown. It was sold to Sir George Maxwell of Nether Mearns in the middle of the seventeenth century, and later passed to the Shaw Stewart family.
