Curling House at Duddingston Loch
Octagonal curling house designed by the architect, William Playfair, in 1823 for the Duddingston Curling Society. The upper floor was used as a studio by the Reverend John Thomson, landscape artist and minister of the church from 1805-40.He named his studio 'Edinburgh', allowing his housekeeper to say that he had 'gone to Edinburgh' if a parishioner called when he was painting. It lies on the shores of Duddingston Loch, a nature reserve near to Holyrood Park and below Arthur's Seat.
