'Come away in, I'll just put the kettle on.'
In 1957, Mrs Margaret Gallie was mine host and the curator of Provand's Lordship, Glasgow's oldest surviving house.
Situated at the top of Castle Street, opposite the Cathedral, Provand's Lordship was built in 1471 as part of St Nicholas's Hospital by Andrew Muirhead, Bishop of Glasgow. The Muirhead coat of arms is still visible on the side of the building.
Provand's Lordship was likely used to house clergy and other support staff for the Cathedral.
The house was later occupied by the Lord of the Prebend of Barlanark and became known as Lord of Provan and then Provand's Lordship.
The property was gifted to the city in 1978 and today operates as a museum of Medieval life.
