      Dates of existence

      18th century -


      Braendam House is located in Thornhill, Stirling and was used as the main accommodation/residential facility for the Lilias Graham Trust, providing facilities for families during placements. The house can accommodate up to six families at any one time in self-contained units and includes two stand-alone properties and four self-contained flats.

      Lilias Graham, for whom the Lilian Graham Trust is named, moved into Braendam House in 1972 after she inherited it from her Aunt. From here, she welcomed families from Glasgow and all over the country for holidays. She also set up the Braendam Link group, which provided a meeting point in Glasgow for families between visits to the house. In May 2006, the company changed its name from Braendam Family House to The Lilias Graham Trust.

      The house is now permanently closed as of 2021.
