Celebrating Scotland’s architectural heritage in 2016

As Scotland plans to launch the ‘Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design’, we look at some of the destination’s architectural heritage to whet your appetite.

Scotland’s architecture landscape has often been described as historic time line, charting the country’s history through design, from medieval crofts and castles to Victoria tenements and cutting edge, contemporary buildings structures.

With Edinburgh ‘old and new’ towns, the city has been recognised as UNESCO World Heritage site and includes such well known buildings as Edinburgh Castle, St Giles Cathedral, the Palace of Holyrood house

Just a forty minute drive from Edinburgh is Stirling Castle, a major strategic stronghold during the 13th and 14th century, whilst in Glasgow there’s the very modern Riverside Museum.
