Within Kingsway Court estate is the unmarked site of the second Scotstoun House (1919-1962), a Glasgow Corporation home for ‘delicate children’. The ‘Children’s Home’ on the little hill close to where 50 Kingsway Court now stands was known locally as ‘the homie’. The house was on the only flat bit of land within the estate at the time and there is now a childrens playpark on it The Scotstoun House on this site was built as a replacement for the original Scotstoun Estate house (located south of Dumbarton Road) which was demolished in the 1890s for the construction of the Lanarkshire-Dunbartonshire railway line.
