Corehouse is a large country house and estate, located approximately 30 miles to the south east of Glasgow, Scotland. The estate is by the Corra Linn Falls on the River Clyde, and close to the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, in South Lanarkshire.

The house was designed around 1820 by Sir Edward Blore for Lord Corehouse and is currently owned by the Cranstoun family. Parts of the house were open to the public during South Lanarksire Council's 2007 Doors Open Day. Part of the estate was given to the Scottish Wildlife Trust, to form the Corehouse Nature Reserve.

Corra Castle[edit]

The remains of Corra Castle, a 15th-century fortified farmhouse built by the Bannatyne family, stand close to Corehouse and by the Corra Linn Falls, defended by cliffs on three sides. The ruins comprise the remains of a tower with basement cellars, and a small courtyard to its east.
