Constructed around 1700, Strathleven House is one of the earliest Palladian buildings in Scotland. Its design is attributed to the James Smith, a notable architect who was employed as the Scottish Master of Works. In 1830, Strathleven was purchased by the Glasgow merchant James Ewing. It was owned by his descendants until 1947 when the estate was compulsorily purchased by the Government. After being initially used as an office, the house fell victim to fire, vandalism and dry rot before being purchased by SHBT in 1985 and restored as a flexible office and events venue.
