Pollok House is an 18th-century Palladian mansion in the south side of Glasgow. Among the exhibits displayed is an important collection of Spanish paintings. Pollok House, together with the walled garden around it and the surrounding land that now forms Pollok Country Park, was given to the City of Glasgow by Mrs Anne Maxwell Macdonald. The house is now managed by the National Trust for Scotland on behalf of Glasgow City Council. A visit to the house gives a sense of life in a Scottish country house in the 1930s. Pollok House displays collections of antique furniture, silverware, ceramics and fine art. The collection of Spanish paintings – one of the finest in Britain – includes El Greco’s enigmatic ‘Lady in a Fur Wrap’ and works by Coello and Murillo. There are also religious visionary works by William Blake and his remarkable ‘Canterbury Pilgrims’. The gardens include more than 1,000 cultivated varieties of rhododendron and a heritage beech tree.
