CATS CASTLE, off Cardross Road, Dumbarton
ACCESS : This is a bed and breakfast establishment.
The name is intriguing and conjures up visions of a large home dominated by feline occupants. It is in fact a private bed-and-breakfast establishment.
Cats Castle is a very large, well-detailed and prominently-sited example of late 19th century Scots-Baronial architecture. As such it deserves the appellation of "castle" as this is the impression it was obviously intended to express. It built for Robert Craig who was a lawyer and Sheriff Clerk in Dumbarton.
It was originally called Hazelwood.
