Hal o' the Wynd House

Facing west onto a car park in Mill Wynd in Perth, Hal o' the Wynd House is modest harled mansion of five bays and three storeys which dates from the early 18th century. It was restored 1980-1 and incorporated into the rear of the adjacent Clydesdale Bank. It features in the novel The Fair Maid of Perth by Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) and a plaque on the front of the building records this fact. Hal o' the Wynd was the nickname of Henry Gow, a fact-based burly blacksmith and armourer who was the lover of the fictitious Catherine Glover in Scott's novel.
