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. The first volume to be published in the series covering Scotland, Lothian boasts some of Scotland's most picturesque villages and fine Georgian towns, but its architectural history goes back to the twelfth century. The introduction of monastic orders and the establishment of the parish churches has left examples at Dalmeny and Tyninghame. Lothian also has fine church buildings of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries while schisms within the Reformed religion are reflected in a variety of lesser churches.
