About David Cargill House

Surrounded by parks, gardens and churches, David Cargill House is located within one of Glasgow’s finest Alexander “Greek” Thomson designed terraces in the heart of the West End.

Within easy reach of the city centre, close to public transport and within walking distance to the local shops, the House was converted in 1951 and has accommodation for up to 45 residents.

We aim to provide our residents with a relaxed, friendly environment. The House is staffed 24 hours a day by a caring and dedicated staff team who endeavor to maintain high standards of care in a homely atmosphere. Visiting hours are open with family and friends welcome to stay for lunch or dinner.

We recognise and appreciate that all our residents are individuals and we tailor our care provision to reflect this.

David Cargill House is a voluntary, non-profit organisation administered by Glasgow Old People’s Welfare Association and as a registered charity we accept donations to support our work. We hold regular fundraising events to support our programme of outings and trips for residents. If you would like to donate to the House you can do so online or give us a call to discuss how you can support us.
