Houses and Gardens: From the...
Archives of "Country Life." It is exactly 100 years

photographers to record the great country houses of the British
Isles. This book features some 20 of the most important and
remarkable houses in Scotland from the archive.

interiors. Cawdor Castle? Traquair, Hopetoun and Drumlanrig?
Yes, Ianthe Ruthven's book does explore half a dozen of Scotland's
more famous castles and country houses, but mostly it's devoted
to buildings which are strictly off the usual tourist trail.
Some of these take the form of Edinburgh town houses and farmhouses
and croft houses in Fife and the Highlands and Islands, but
many architectural enthusiasts will doubtless be delighted to
discover that most of the 176 pages of 'The Scottish House'
are in fact devoted to architecturally significant homes to
which the general public usually have no, or at best very limited,
Houses of Edinburgh.

Scottish Chateau: The Country House... of Renaissance Scotland.
This attractive book offers a reinterpretation of the swaggering
Scottish Renaissance country house. The author reveals sixteenth-century
Scotland as vivid, colourful, flamboyant and European, thus
reversing a cultural heritage. Using contemporary descriptions,
archives and documents, mixed with reconstructions of buildings,
this book is a lively read illustrated by portraits, gardens,
interiors and landscapes.
