Res­i­dents in Ruther­glen were left stunned at the blaze at one of town’s most iconic land­marks.

Blair­tum House in Burn­side was turned into an in­ferno on the night of May 6.

The flames and smoke could be seen for miles around as fire­fight­ers fought des­per­ately to save the sand­stone villa.

It took over three hours to bring the blaze un­der con­trol while the dy­ing em­bers were still be­ing put out well into Satur­day morn­ing.

Thank­fully no-one was hurt in the blaze.
