Colzium House

Colzium House is one of the jewels in North Lanarkshire’s crown. Originally built in 1783, with additions made in 1861, it’s a distinct architectural mix of Scottish Vernacular and the more modern Renaissance styles.

Mackay Lennox bought Colzium House in 1930. When he retired from his role as Town Clerk he presented the House and Policies to Kilsyth Burgh, now part of North Lanarkshire, in memory of his mother. The House has been reconditioned and now offers a suite of rooms suitable for functions of all kinds and a small museum of local history

It’s a superb venue for special occasions. Situated in the idyllic Colzium Lennox Estate, Colzium House is the perfect place, for example, for an intimate wedding. Guests have the house to themselves, and can hold their wedding in the downstairs rooms and have photographs taken in the gardens before retiring to the first floor banqueting suite for the reception. The small downstairs room can be used as a private place for the bride and as storage for any presents received on the day.

The house is also a great place for business events like seminars and conferences, and for interviewing job candidates or prospective clients – it’ll certainly make a positive lasting impression.

Viewings of this facility are available every Monday evening between 5pm and 7pm (excluding public holidays).


Colzium House has one main hall, which is situated on the first floor and can hold a maximum of 100 people for a dinner dance or disco. There is a bar and a stage at the rear of the hall. There are also two rooms available for hire on the ground floor, both of which can cater for up to 40 people.  Each room in the house overlooks the beautiful surrounding gardens.

Kitchen facilities complement main hall requirements, and are ideal for catering or for hired caterers to work from. They can also be used simply for heating food provided by guests. There is a large free-standing fridge available if required.


Colzium Lennox Estate is in Kilsyth, just off the A803. Due to the unique, secluded location it is recommended that you get clear directions before starting your journey. There are parking facilities on the estate, with 20 spaces near the entrance of the house. There is an excellent bus service from Falkirk, Stirling and Glasgow. The main line rail station is Croy Station, which is approximately 6 minutes away by taxi. For further details on available transport click here.
