Dovecote For Sale In Glasgow
Grade A listed Daldowie Dovecote ("Doocot") is all that remains of the Daldowie House estate and dates to c.1650. Once neglected and vandalised, it was completely dismantled in 2000 by The Land Trust and relocated one mile to the north.

Now fully restored, it sits on a large triangular shaped, 1.69 acre plot of land in the residential area of Mount Vernon, close to local amenities and transport links and a mere six miles from Glasgow city centre.

This cylindrical sandstone tower has a series of flight holes to nesting boxes located below the eaves of its slated bellcast roof. Inside is an internal timber revolving ladder for access to collect pigeons for their meat.

There are no details as to whether planning for conversion to residential use would be possible, but if you're partial to unusual property or indeed, pigeon pie, you may be interested to know that this Glasgow landmark goes under the hammer on the 5th of February 2013 at Glasgow Radison Blu Hotel with the low guide price of £44,000.
