SITUATION
Westraw House is located to the east of the village of Pettinain, approximately 5 miles outside the market town of Lanark which provides a range of amenities including leisure facilities, supermarkets and restaurants. Lanark Auction Mart with an excellent fruit and veg market and the historic village of New Lanark at the Falls of Clyde are within easy reach of the property. Secondary schools both Lanark and Biggar.

Edinburgh and Glasgow are both within easy reach by road or rail. Regular city train services are nearby, at Lanark and Carstairs Junction, with Caledonian Sleeper midnight boarding for London return journeys. Rural A roads and nearby M74 provide road links to Edinburgh, Glasgow, the north and the south.

HISTORY
Once a Peele Tower, the fortified seat of Hyndland, Westraw House has evolved over five centuries to be the spacious and gracious dwelling of today. The elevated site sits up over the fields from the River Clyde, on the opposite side to the ancient Roman Lindum, (now Castledykes Farm). In turn it looks upwards to hills dominated with the mark of Iron Age forts and earthwork signs of a gathering place for people of prehistory. Agriculture has taken over from the hunting grounds yet wild nature stays. Owls, badgers, fox and deer remain and geese return for every winter.

Iconic crow step gable ends to the Georgian modernisation, where occasionally the stonemasons discretely left their mark, give the house imposing facades. Inside it is an atmosphere of openness and flow, surely the influence of a feminine heart, at the very least in the breadth of stone doorways, where wide hooped dresses once moved with ease.

In the heart of undiscovered Clydesdale countryside the setting enjoys the quality of a meridian point between the complimentary cultures of east and west Scotland. It has been a house built to serve social cohesion: a safe refuge in early times of martial dispute, a Shire wide centre, with oral history accounts of grand Balls.

Certainly there have been festive garden marquee events and school age sleep overs of considerable proportion. Perhaps the deep sense of order and peace fosters the chance of inspiration and fun.
