THE LAW COURTS

The Law Courts were originally designed by Robert Adam (1728-92), one of four brothers in a family of architects.

Their father William Adam, designed Hopetoun and helped give the New Town it's geometrically integrated elegance.

A deficit in available funds meant that the present exteriors were designed to the specifications of Robert Reid (1776-1856), who designed the northern part of the New Town.

Although he borrowed heavily from the architectural vocabulary of Adam's, he never matched his flair.
