BAKEHOUSE CLOSE

The deep archway, dating from 1570, describes the joining of three houses into one. Huntly House, the mansion at the east end displays inscribed stone tablets; the means by which locals were rebuked for opposing its construction at this time.

The present name comes from the bakehouse on the west side. This comprised the quarters of the bakers and hammermen (metalsmiths) in addition to the Acheson family - household staff to James VI and Charles I. Huntly House, purchased in 1924, is now a principal City Museum.

Bakehouse Close leads to Holyrood Road
