Huntly House

Previous page: Moray House

Huntly House is a timber fronted building set amidst more modern tenements next to Moray House in the Canongate. It is very doubtful if it ever was the home of the "noble" family of Huntly but be that as it may, this structure is one of the most noted specimens of domestic architecture of the pre-Reformation period still remaining in the city. The front is adorned with sculptured tablets bearing quaint mottoes, and the date 1570, but the building is considerably older.
