Gallowhill

All three towers prior to upgrades

Arkleston Court was a 15 storey tower block in Gallowhill, Paisley. The block was located on Montgomery Road on the estate which is in the north east of the town. The 43m tall building was approved in the Gallowhill project in 1968 and construction was carried out by Wimpey. The building was completed the following year and contained 90 flats. There were aircraft warning lights on the roof due to the buildings close proximity to Glasgow Airport. The building took it's name from nearby Arkleston farm which forms the borderline between Renfrewshire and Glasgow.

In 2010 Renfrewshire council decided that Arkleston Court was to be demolished in line with the Gallowhill redevloptment project. The demolition of the building was halted on several occasions when it's last remaining resident refused to leave. After lengthy court proceedings the building was eventually demolished in late 2014
