Moray House

Previous page: The Royal Exchange

Moray House in the Canongate has a curious entrance guarded by obelisk-topped pillars and its substantial balcony.

In this mansion, which has richly ornamented dome-shaped ceilings, Cromwell lived for a few days in 1648, and for nearly a year after the battle of Dunbar. Behind is a summer-house in which the Treaty of Union (1707) was partly signed.
