Key Scottish Building by this Architect
Royal High School, Edinburgh, South East Scotland
The Royal High School is one of the key Scottish examples of Enlightenment Architecture along with the National Monument behind it on Calton Hill. The Greek Doric columns are based on the Temple of Theseus, overlooking Athens. This building ceased to be a school in 1968 and was eventually purchased by the City of Edinburgh Council.
