“Portincaple – Loch Long” by Evelyn Carslaw412 viewsThis work by Evelyn Carslaw (1881–1968), a Glasgow Girl contemporary of Norah Neilson Gray, was donated to the Anderson Trust by her son John Carslaw, himself a painter and a Trustee. The painting invites comparison with an earlier painting in the Collection of the same view by John Reid Murray, and with two paintings acquired in 2009 by a more recent artist who also lived and painted at Portincaple, Violet MacNeish Kay (1914–1971).

Victoria Hall412 viewsThe Victoria Hall in Sinclair Street, Helensburgh, with its original metal railings in front which were removed during World War Two to help the war effort. They were replaced to mark the burgh's bicentenary in 2002 after an initiative by the Friends of the Victoria Hall. The building itself was funded by public subscription in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, and was altered and added to by A.N.Paterson in 1899.
Auchendennan411 viewsAuchendennan House was from 1945 to 2013 a Youth Hostel and is reputed to have its own ghost. This view, circa 1956, shows Loch Lomond and Inchmurrin island beyond. Used for hunting by Robert the Bruce when he lived at Cardross, and then a church possession of Dunbarton, Auchendennan was feued about the time of Flodden to one of the Dennistouns, Andrew of Cardross, whose descendants held it for 100 years and then the Napiers of Kilmahew for another 100 years. The present mansion was built in 1867 by Glasgow merchant George Martin, and it is now back in private ownership.
