Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for Finart

Finart, an estate, with a mansion, in Row parish, Dumbartonshire. The mansion, standing on the E shore of Loch Long, 3 miles N of Garelochhead, is the seat of Edward Caird, LL.D., professor of moral philosophy in Glasgow University since 1866. It has finely wooded grounds, and is overhung by a hill and mountain that command a superb view of Loch Long. Hill and mountain are often called Finart, but really consist of, first, Tom Buidhe (936 feet), 1 mile NE of the mansion, and, next, Ben Mhanarch (2328), culminating 9 furlongs ESE of that hill.—Ord. Sur., sh. 38, 1871.
