New owners signal a fresh start for St Peter's Seminary
July 27 2020
The new owners of St Peter's Seminary, Cardross, have expressed renewed faith that a decade's long deadlock can be resolved by pursuing an education-led vision for the historic site.
Last week the Kilmahew Education Trust, a newly formed Bath-based charity, was bequeathed the estate by the Archdiocese of Glasgow, clearing the way for an education-led solution for the crumbling brutalist landmark which would preserve the structure for posterity.
Director Stuart Cotton said: "There is no doubting the beauty of the Kilmahew landscape nor the atmospheric presence that surrounds the seminary complex of St Peter’s. We simply need to develop a viable vision, with education at its core, and execute the plans that develop from that to the best of our abilities.
"In the build-up to the acquisition, our education trust has been busy putting together an internationally-renowned team to assist us. We are currently fine-tuning our plans to enhance Kilmahew and these will be made public in due course."
No details of the client team or specific proposals have been divulged at this stage.
