Scottish Country Houses

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.

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.

Historic Houses of Edinburgh

Historic Houses of Edinburgh. A guide to dwelling houses in Edinburgh which are of special interest because of age, history, architecture, unusual features or owners.

Perth And Kinross

Perth and Kinross: An Illustrated... Architectural Guide.

Tolbooths and Townhouses: A Record of... Tolbooths and Townhouses.

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.
