Duddingston House

Duddingston House, Edinburgh

Scotland, nr Edinburgh, EH15. The architecture takes inspiration from Palladio’s Villa Capra and is unique to Scotland as the first Palladian house to be built with servants quarters, chapel and stables laid out in the adjacent courtyard. The house was used to entertain guests and in particular many of the key Scottish politicians from mid-eighteenth century. The house is clearly designed to impress the visitor as one enters the “great hall” and has now been painstakingly restored incorporating contemporary art, design, and digital technology. The house is unique and striking it is a 10 minute taxi from Edinburgh Train Station but it feels like it is set in the country side. The ground floor rooms are available for filming and photography.
