John Honeyman & Keppie carried out two phases of additions and alterations to this Renaissance-style mansion designed by John Honeyman in the 1870s. In 1892–3, a winter garden, billiard room and two-storey bedroom wing were added, the hall and library were fitted out, and the stables altered. In 1897–8 the music room was fitted out, including an organ case.

Authorship: Mackintosh was clearly involved in the work at Craigie Hall. Annotations on John Honeyman & Keppie's 1892 drawings submitted to the Glasgow Dean of Guild Court are in his hand and the decorative detailing of features in the hall and library confirm his involvement. Drawings by Mackintosh dating from 1897 show panelling for the music room. The organ case can be attributed to him on stylistic grounds. 1
