Former lodge of Helenslee House
Former lodge of Helenslee House
The building shown here was originally the lodge associated with the mansion house of Helenslee; see its listed building report for further details: LinkExternal link (at Historic Environment Scotland).

Later, the mansion house and its grounds become part of Keil School: NS3875 : Helenslee House / Keil School. The location shown in the present photograph then became the main entrance of the school.
Keil School

An independent school founded at Keil House (NR67670788), at the southern tip of Kintyre, in 1915. After a disastrous fire, it relocated, in 1925, to the mansion house of Helenslee (NS38677506), which is in the Kirktonhill area of Dumbarton. The school remained there until its final closure in 2000. The building itself subsequently remained unoccupied, and it was damaged by fire early in 2013. A housing development was created around it; Helenslee House itself was supposed to be restored as a part of that development, but, as of the end of 2016, that has not yet occurred.
