Highland Retreats - The Influence of the Romantic North on architecture and taste

Joint Autumn lecture with Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland

Architectural historian, writer and journalist Mary Miers tells the story of how the Highlands were ‘reinvented’ by early tourists and appropriated as a holiday paradise for the rich.  She explores the influence of the romanticised North on the architecture and landscape setting of the ‘big house’ within the framework of vividly portrayed social history that scotches many myths.

Venue: St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church, 13 George Street, Edinburgh

Time 6.30 pm

Admission £5.00 on door
