Fodor's Review

The 18th-century Broughton House was the home of the artist E. A. Hornel from 1901 until his death in 1933 and remains largely as it was in his time. Hornel was a member of the school of painters called the "Glasgow Boys" of the late 19th century. You can see many of his paintings in the gallery he had specially built onto the house to impress the guests and buyers who came to see his work. His use and love of color is nowhere more obvious than in the beautiful garden, which combines lawns, ponds, and formal and wild flower beds. The knowledgeable guides will gladly provide all the information you may need about the life and work of the painter.
