Lodge Thistle and Crown is one of the oldest buildings in Neilston. The Lodge enjoys excellent premises with a large function room at ground floor and a beautifully laid out and furnished Masonic temple at the first floor.

The Lodge acquired the current premises in the early 1960s and extended the premises in the early 1970s to accommodate a social club, which has now been upgraded to a fine function suite (available to Charitable Organisations at no charge).

The acquisition of the premises in the 60s was most fitting as it had originally been the home of Dr. David Pride MD, who was to become the 1st Master of the new Lodge in 1918.

The Lodge is working to further develop its relationships with the local community, having made several donations to local organisations to mark the Centenary in 2018. In 2019, we are very pleased to sponsor a Burns Competition in each of the two local primary schools.

We are always happy to offer a tour of our premises to anyone considering holding a function or who might wish simply to see what a Masonic Lodge looks like!
