Visitors will be stunned at the diversity of the Scottish architecture that drew off various styles across the world, influencing the construction and style of the buildings. With the publication of The Architecture of Scotland , the longstanding and artificial cultural barrier between pre and post Scottish architecture has finally come crashing down, vividly highlighting the overpowering continuities within Scottish building and landscape design of the early modern era, and re-emphasising its strong links to contemporary continental Europe.

The earliest surviving houses go back around years, and the first villages years: Skara Brae on the Mainland of Orkney being the earliest preserved example in Europe. Crannogs, roundhouses, each built on an artificial island, date from the Bronze. The history of Scotland's architecture is an interesting and varied timeline of design and creativity. This rich legacy defines Scotland as a nation of creativity and innovation, where each city has its own landmarks, history and identity underpinned by heritage, tradition, and modernism.
