Stained Glass Window, Fraser Memorial Institute, Wanlockhead

20th Century

The stained glass window which featured in the Fraser Memorial Institute represents ‘Faith, Hope & Charity’, the embodiment of ‘The Perfect Woman’. It was the gift of Archibald Fraser in memory of his eldest daughter Margaret Dryden Fraser, who died in 1915, to “perpetuate the memory of my daughter in years to come”.


The Fraser Memorial Institute was erected by brothers John, William and Archibald Fraser who had expressed the desire to erect, at their own expense, a public hall dedicated to their parents John & Isobel. The building, opened in 1908, contained a large reading room, billiard room, baths, lavatories, committee and retiring rooms and also a function hall with a raised platform. Above these were the hall keeper’s apartments. The whole was heated by hot water and was fully furnished and fitted.


The hall was demolished in ……. The windows are now in the care of the Trust awaiting restoration.
