Doorway of Provost Skene's House
Doorway of Provost Skene's House with the coat of arms of Provost George Skene. He was Provost of the City from 1676 - 1685, although the house dates from around 1545. The motto above the doorway reads "Gratis a Deo duta", which means "Thanks be given to God". The doorway is surrounded by thistles and roses to commemorate the restoration of Charles II.
