The abandoned house of Lathallan is a B-listed baronial country house near Polmont in Falkirk which was built in 1826. It was also known in some places as Lawrence Park. It was designed by the renowned architect Thomas Hamilton with much of the detailing being lost due to vandalism and it’s general deterioration leaving it close to an empty shell. There was a major fire in 2006 that some say was due to a squatter that had been living inside. It once was home to the successful Salvesen shipping family with Johan Theodor Salvesen who set up a business as a shipbroker at the nearby Grangemouth. Now all that remains are small details signaling to it’s past as a luxurious home for the wealthy.
