Killearn House was originally built in 1816 to serve as an illustrious
residence for John Blackburn, a wealthy Glasgow sugar merchant at
the time.
Situated between the Campsie Fells and the Kilpatrick Hills the house
stood close to where the Blane runs into EndrickWater, which in turn
drains into Loch Lomond approximately 6 miles north west of the
house. The location was chosen for its stunning rural beauty whilst
having the added benefit of being within easy reach of Glasgow. For
John Blackburn it was the perfect place to bring up his large family, and
entertain his wide circle of friends.
Until recently the site of Killearn House, which lies on the edge of
the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, lay in ruins. However,
today Killearn House is enjoying a new lease of life as it reawakens
to its former glory in the form of a superbly appointed residential
development consisting of 3 houses and 10 luxury apartments.
