National Archives of Scotland: West Register House


Originally St George's Church, the design by Robert Adam was modified by Robert Reid in 1811. The church with its elegant dome and gilded lantern magnificently closes the vista of George Street. Converted in 1964 for use by the Scottish Record Office (now National Archives of Scotland). The entrance hall only will be open.
