Pollok Country Park has been the site of three castles.
1160 - the first castle was a wooden structure located on the banks of the White Cart Water.
1270 - the second was a fortified tower with a moat, a drawbridge and was built on high ground where the woodland garden is.
1500 - the third castle replaced the second one and was called Nether Pollok Castle. It was destroyed by fire in 1882, the area was cleared and the old stable courtyard was built in its place.
Pollok Country Park has extensive links to medieval history. For example, the village of Pooktoun/Polloktoun was located opposite Pollok House from the mid-1400s until it was demolished in 1798.
