Glenlair House, near the village of
Corsock in the Scottish Council
area of Dumfries and Galloway, was the home of the physicist James
Clerk Maxwell (1831–1879). The original structure was designed for
Maxwell's father by Walter Newall; Maxwell himself oversaw the
construction of an extension in the late 1860s, and further
improvements were made by his heir, Andrew Wedderburn-Maxwell.
Fires in 1899 and 1929 left the house gutted, but a project to
preserve and stabilize the remains has been undertaken by the Maxwell
at Glenlair Trust.
