NJ9406 : Provost Ross' House

near to Aberdeen, Great Britain

Provost Ross' House
Provost Ross' House
One of the oldest houses in Aberdeen this dates from 1593. It was in a sorry state by the 1950s and was threatened with demolition. Fortunately it was restored by the National Trust For Scotland in 1954.

Sadly the view looking in the other direction, towards the Town House, that can be seen in Colin Smith's 1990 photograph has been ruined by the unwelcome addition of a grotesque eyesore of a cinema. This shabby building, constructed in 2000, now obscures much of the view of the splendid baronial town house.
