Garscube House, near Glasgow, once contained one of the most distinguished collections of continental Old Master paintings in Scotland. Formed in the 1820s and 1830s by Sir Archibald Campbell of Succoth (1769-1846), 2nd Baronet, the collection was visited by Waagen on his tour of Britain in 1851, but was dispersed after the Second World War. The present paper seeks to reconstruct the collection, largely on the basis of a manuscript inventory, published as an appendix to this paper at http://www.jhc.oxfordjournals.org.
