St Peters Seminary, Cardross - Conservation Assessment

St Peters Seminary, Cardross - Avanti Architects Report

Built in the 1960s to great acclaim, St Peter’s Seminary at Cardross is one of Scotland’s most important 20th Century buildings. Unfortunately, the educational complex has lain empty since the 1980s following structural changes within the Church.

Despite many attempts, a new use has never been found for the building in its superb landscape setting.. In partnership with Historic Scotland and Argyll and Bute Council, the site’s owners, the Archdiocese of Glasgow, commissioned a report from Avanti Architects to assess the building’s condition and potential future use.

This thoroughly researched and well-presented report and consultation responses can now be accessed below:
