Adam Bothwell's House

Located behind Advocate's Close off Edinburgh's High Street is Adam Bothwell's House. The house was not built until 1630, some 37 years after the death of Bothwell, who was Bishop of Orkney. The house was actually built for Sir William Dick of Braid (1580 - 1655), a wealthy merchant and Provost of Edinburgh. Architecturally unusual, this narrow barge-shaped building sits as a curious appendage to the neighbouring building and has subsequently been much altered. Today, the house accommodates a solicitor's office.
