Albyn Terrace
Built in the late 1860's, this row of 16 terraced houses may have been designed by the architect J. Russell Mackenzie. It was laid out at the west end of Albyn Place on the lands of Rubislaw owned by the Skene Family.

James Skene was a friend of Sir Walter Scott, and lived in Albyn Place in Edinburgh, and it is believed that some street names in this area derive from that association eg: Albyn, Waverley.

This photograph, by George Washington Wilson in around 1880, shows the two stories, plus garrets, built of rock faced granite.

Both end elevations are gabled and have orial windows, rounded towers and conical roofs. They had between 14 and 18 rooms and were then occupied by merchants and advocates. Most have now been converted to office use.
