Pevsners Architectural Glossary


The Buildings of Scotland, founded by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner and Colin McWilliam will, when complete, guide the reader to all buildings of significance in Scotland. A comprehensive gazetteer to all notable developments of central Edinburgh, from the seaport town of Leith to the suburban neighbourhoods, the historic capital of Scotland is well known as a fortified medieval city with castle and crown-steepled church, its Royal Mile leading down to the Abbey and Palace of Holyrood; as a Georgian town with the largest sequence of planned developments in Britain; as a Victorian town of churches and banks, hotels and pubs, and as a twentieth-century city where the Festival and its Fringe have encouraged the rediscovery of old buildings and the planning of new ones.
