Great Houses of Scotland

Front Cover
This volume explores 25 great houses in Scotland. It is filled with anecdotes that describe the history of each house, both its architecture and its families, giving a sense of the life it embodies. Specially commissioned photographs illustrate all aspects of the houses. The selection of houses reflects the development of architectural style in Scotland, from old tower houses such as Cawdor and Traquair to the spectacular baroque of Drumlanrig, the pioneering Classicism of Kinross and the Edwardian opulence of Manderston and Ardkinglas. The book concludes with a list of contact details and opening times for the houses that will assist those wishing to visit them.
