“Ardincaple, a stately mansion in Row parish, Dumbartonshire, on the N side of Gareloch amid fine lawns, grand old woods, and swelling ridges, immediately W of Helensburgh. It is in true old Scottish Baronial style, chiefly somewhat modern, but partly very ancient, perhaps as old as the first half of the 12th century; and it was long, from time to time, the residence of the Dowager Duchesses of Argyll, but is now a seat of Sir James Colquhoun of Luss, Bart.”

Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland (1882-4)
