The history of Hermitage Park

THE STORY of Helensburgh’s Hermitage House goes back to 1838, when Robert Fulton Alexander, a merchant in Glasgow, feued two sizeable portions of land in the Barony of Milligs from the landowner, Sir James Colquhoun.

These pieces of land were presumably next to each other, and they were included in the same land deed.
