Buildings in the High Street
Buildings in the High Street
"All these conspicuous buildings form the upper part of the great street, are of stone, and make a handsome appearance: they are generally six or seven stories high in front; but, by reason of the declivity of the hill, much higher backward; one in particular called Babel*, has about twelve or thirteen stories. Every house has a common staircase, and every story is the habitation of a separate family." -- Thomas Pennant, A Tour In Scotland 1769

*behind Parliament Close where the Court of Session building now stands
