'Rysland' in Ayr Road, Newton Mearns was designed for Alexander Thomson's friend and colleague John Shields, who had been his next-door neighbour at 3 Moray Place, Strathbungo.
It was one of Thomson's last works, completed a year before his death in 1875. The villa is currently known as 'Croyland'.
