Scottish Houses

Scottish Houses and Gardens: From the... Archives of "Country Life." It is exactly 100 years since Country Life began to commission leading architectural photographers to record the great country houses of the British Isles. This book features some 20 of the most important and remarkable houses in Scotland from the archive.

Rosslyn Chapel

The Stone Puzzle of Rosslyn Chapel. Rosslyn Chapel has fuelled controversy and debate, both recently in several best-selling books as well as in past centuries. Revered by Freemasons as a vital part of their history, believed by some to hold evidence of pre-Columbian voyages to America, assumed by others to hold important relics, from the Holy Grail to the Head of Christ, the Scottish chapel is a place full of mystery.

The Scottish House

The Scottish House : eclectic and unique... interiors. Cawdor Castle? Traquair, Hopetoun and Drumlanrig? Yes, Ianthe Ruthven's book does explore half a dozen of Scotland's more famous castles and country houses, but mostly it's devoted to buildings which are strictly off the usual tourist trail. Some of these take the form of Edinburgh town houses and farmhouses and croft houses in Fife and the Highlands and Islands, but many architectural enthusiasts will doubtless be delighted to discover that most of the 176 pages of 'The Scottish House' are in fact devoted to architecturally significant homes to which the general public usually have no, or at best very limited, access.

Scotland's Buildings

Scotland's Buildings (Scottish Life &... Society) Scotland's Buildings takes the concept of buildings to include structures built for any functional purpose. The perspective of the volume is thus very wide. It particularly looks at dwellings, community buildings and work places.

The Lighthouse Stevensons: The...Extraordinary Story of the Building of the Scottish Lighthouses by the Ancestors of Robert Louis Stevenson. "Whenever I smell salt water, I know that I am not far from one of the works of my ancestors." Robert Louis Stevenson The 14 lighthouses dotting the Scottish coast were all built by the same family that produced Robert Louis Stevenson, Scotland's most famous novelist. Surprised? Bella Bathurst throws a powerful, revolving light into the darkness of this historical tradition. I highly recommend this book.

Safe Sanctuaries: Security and Defence... in Anglo-Scottish Border Churches, 1296-1603. This text is about the fortified churches which form a feature of the borderlands between Scotland and England. Through these buildings the author draws a picture of the people and events which shaped this land, from the actions of government to events and incidents which shaped everyday lives.

The Scottish Chateau: The Country House... of Renaissance Scotland. This attractive book offers a reinterpretation of the swaggering Scottish Renaissance country house. The author reveals sixteenth-century Scotland as vivid, colourful, flamboyant and European, thus reversing a cultural heritage. Using contemporary descriptions, archives and documents, mixed with reconstructions of buildings, this book is a lively read illustrated by portraits, gardens, interiors and landscapes.
