Gibb's Close

 
 

GIBB'S CLOSE

The 4th Earl of Traquair erected a tall tenement on this site in 1700 and lived here with his twin daughters.

In the latter half of the same century, coachbuilder Robert Gibb made the close his residence and it still bears his name.

Gibb's Close gained notoriety in the 1820's when it was the scene of murder by the notorious duo Burke and Hare.
