Castles and Mansions of the Lothians

Castles and Mansions of the Lothians
Castles and Mansions of the Lothians
This exhibition features 2 volumes that are held in the Edinburgh & Scottish Collection within Central Library, titled Castles and Mansions of the Lothians.

There are over a hundred photographs and judging by the style of the images, we think they were all taken by the same photographer.

The mansions are situated throughout the Lothians from Linlithgow in the west to many in East Lothian plus others closer to the centre of they city.

Although we think that the photographs were taken between 1875-1883, the photographs feature grand houses built in an age that allowed owners to display their wealth together with ancestral homes that had been passed down from generation to generation.

Sadly, not all these buildings still exist, the ones that do are mostly now events venues, hotels or B&Bs or have been converted into residential apartments. There are one or two that remain private residences and continue, to display their original splendour to this day.
