Blythswood House
Blythswood House fotografiert von Thomas Annan 1870

Blythswood House war ein in neoklassischem Stil gebauter Herrensitz in Glasgow. Er wurde 1821 nach Plänen des schottischen Architekten James Gillespie Graham als Familiensitz der Lords Blythswood erbaut. Das Gebäude lag am rechten Ufer des Flusses Cart in der Nähe der Mündung des Cart in den Fluss Clyde. Bauherr war der Parlamentsabgeordnete Archibald Campbell of Blythswood. Er ließ das neue Anwesen direkt neben dem alten Familiensitz der Blythswoods errichten, der sich seit 1654 im Besitz der Familie befunden hatte. Zum Blythswood House gehörten im 19. Jahrhundert weitläufige Ländereien, die heute fast vollständig mit den westlichen Vorstädten von Glasgow überbaut sind. Die Ausdehnung des Großraums Glasgow war 1935 auch der Grund für den Abriss des Gebäudes. An der Stelle, an der das Blythswood House gestanden hatte, befindet sich heute der Renfrew Golf Course.
