This talk looks at the influence Sir Walter Scott had on the ‘Scottishness’ of Scottish architecture, and how his celebration of the Medieval past fuelled a re-examination of ancient buildings. As we shall see, the Scots Baronial in its varied manifestations is indebted to Scott, but so too, through William Morris, is the Arts & Crafts Movement.
