Edinburgh in 50 Buildings

By (author) Jack Gillon

From its founding as a Royal Burgh in the twelfth century through its growth and development as an internationally renowned hotbed of science, education, literature and culture, to its current status as home of the Scottish Parliament and the largest financial centre in the UK outside London, Edinburgh has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped the “Athens of the North”. Edinburgh in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant city through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the elegance of the neo-classical and Georgian New Town to the controversial Parliament building, this unique study celebrates the city’s architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local author Jack Gillon guides the reader on a tour of the city’s historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
