Hi Folks,

My dad showed me this old house when I was about 10, maybe thats where I got the bug. That was 24 years ago and it still looks the same apart fron the windows being bricked up. It sits on the other side of the forth and clyde canal on the kilsyth side. In the summer you cannot see it as all the trees are in full bloom this you will see from the flash earth link. I do not know any history about it I am trying my best to research it. Iwill keep you up to date with my findings.

The house does not look like your ordinary farm house esspecially with the triangle shape above the front door. Looks more like a small estae house.

I was dissapointed I could not get a full on pic of the front of the house, too many darn trees.

The rest of the pics are in the residential gallery

Spot the shadow in the picture below, very professional lol :eek:

Hey Simon-G. I've had a look for information about this place on a site called
ArchSearch (archaeology database), its a bit of a tricky website to use but
it gets easier with practice, the map search is a good way to get started.

I don't know the area so I could be horribly wrong but I did read on
ArchSearch about a Dun (hillfort) just to the east of the house, the
dun is called Colziumbea and the description of it is quite interesting.


Colziumbea

The remains of a small fort, 500' in circumference, surrounded by a rampart of stone and earth 14' in breadth, with several internal dividing walls of rough stone, were visible about 1726 near a few houses called Columbee, E of Coliam, near Kilsyth.

Near a few houses called Columbee?

Hi Bishop,

Thanks for info. I know there is a colzium estate about 2 miles from this site.
weather this house is anything to do with it i'm not sure. Heres the link to colzium house estate on flash earth.

Above the estate house there is lovely walled gardens, I've been there many times.

Thanks for the info.

Hi potter,

Inside is basically and empty shell. if you like I can send you a couple of photo's. I did have them in the site but I think every so oftem the site gets cleaned up to free up some space.

The building you are curious about is the old Stables, nothing exciting, many have tried to buy it for a house and for a restaurant but its not to be sold, its a listed building also the Colzium Estate is very interesting with history of Bonny Prince Charlie being here for a while and the Battle of Kilsyth 15th August 1645, both these places are my every day walks with the dod 😀
