Quick Reference

(d. 1631). Scottish architect. He was Master-Mason to the Scottish Crown from 1617 until his death, and carried out works including the King's Lodging, Edinburgh Castle (1615–17), the north quarter of Linlithgow Palace, West Lothian (1618–21), and parts of Stirling Castle. He was responsible for Heriot's Hospital, Edinburgh (1628–59), a showy work with Anglo-Flemish Mannerist decorations. Indeed, he was a major figure in the introduction of this style to Scotland. Among his other designs were Wintoun Castle, East Lothian (c. 1620–30), and the monument of John Byres of Coates (d. 1629) in the Greyfriars Cemetery, Edinburgh, in which exuberant strapwork abounds.
