Giving new life to Riddle’s Court, a 16th-century courtyard residence in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, was in many ways the largest and most complex restoration projects ever undertaken by the Scottish Historic Buildings Trust.
After the project’s completion, Riddle’s Court was officially re-opened in September 2017. It remains in use as a centre for learning, event space and festival venue.
Each room reveals a different chapter of its 500-year history, from a painted ceiling installed for a royal banquet to one created for students to dine under. Join SHBT this Doors Open Day to explore the beautiful interior spaces of this intriguing building.
