Snowy Crossbasket

A photo from 13 years ago, taken around 2010 by Gordon Cook. This is Crossbasket House, then facing an uncertain future, partially derelict and generally uncared for. Parts of this building over half a Millennium old, the building in those years was ripe for development and planning application had already been refused to turn it into flats.

Thankfully, during the 2010’s, Crossbasket future was salvaged and secured by a multi million pound renovation and is of course now a 5 star luxury hotel and restaurant. Rebranded as Crossbasket Castle, the building has certainly put High Blantyre back on the map in recent years, also now a popular wedding venue.

Crossbasket Estate now in the 2020’s is expanding further with development plans currently in place and underway.
