Caption: Building in Thistle Court, Edinburgh, Lothian Region.
Description: The buildings of Thistle Court are a unique enclave, representing some of the oldest buildings of the Edinburgh New Town. These properties were built around 1768 using locally derived rubble stone including volcanic rocks. The original New Town was begun in 1767 and built to a strict geometrical plan designed by James Craig. Construction began at the east end, around St. Andrew Square and over time the building developed westwards along George Street towards Charlotte Square. These remaining original buildings possess great character and are of historical importance.
