A richly illustrated survey of the complete history of Scottish architecture, from the circular houses of Skara Brae to the new Parliament at Edinburgh Scotland is almost unique among smaller European nations in the distinctiveness and richness of its architectural heritage, dominated from the earliest times by monumental stone buildings. Prehistoric tombs and houses, early Christian, Romanesque and Gothic churches, medieval and Renaissance castles and palaces were followed, from the 17th century onward, under the stimulus of burgeoning wealth and power, by buildings reflecting a dazzling range of stylistic movements and forceful designers - including world-renowned names such as Robert Adam, Alexander Thomson and C. R. Mackintosh. In the 20th century, Scotland again saw distinctive developments and personalities.
