Built in 1882, Olrig Terrace was probably designed by architect John Gordon, for developer Robert Barclay Shaw, who was also responsible for building the 1888 Glasgow International Exhibition. Both gentlemen chose to live in the lovely terrace which has Beaux-Arts influenced elevations and individually-commissioned stained glass features. Shaw elected to occupy No. 7 Olrig Terrace, now No. 16 Glencairn Drive.
