Scottish Historic Buildings Trust is a charity that secures the future of under-used historic buildings across Scotland by expertly restoring them for the nation and finding new uses that can regenerate local communities and the historic environment. 

Scottish Historic Buildings Trust is in the final stages of fundraising to transform Riddle’s Court, an important 16th century merchant’s house on the Royal Mile, into the Patrick Geddes Centre.   Patrick Geddes was responsible for the restoration of Riddle's Court into a Hall of Residence in the late 19th century.  Contractors went on site in July 2015 and work will finish in Autumn 2017.

Edinburgh's anonymous paper sculptor has long been inspired by Patrick Geddes’ ideas  and has delivered a very special package to Riddle's Court.   For further information click here.
