Hamilton Mausoleum

Hamilton Mausoleum

Built by Alexander, 10th Duke of Hamilton, as a magnificent private tomb, the Mausoleum is a unique and impressive building with a massive, 36 metre high dome.

The original bronze doors, now displayed inside the chapel, were cast from the famous Ghiberti doors at the Baptistery of Florence. Two massive lion sculptures by Alexander Handyside Ritchie overlook the entrance to the crypt.
