Adam Smith and Panmure House: Saving an Edinburgh Landmark


15th March 2019

Rosalee Ross

Panmure House was the final residence of Adam Smith, who lived there from 1778 to 1790. This important 17th century Canongate house has recently been the subject of major conservation, adaptation and restoration work, partly funded by Edinburgh World Heritage, and opened as a centre of learning for the Edinburgh Business School at the end of last year.

In a sell-out members-only lecture on 28 February, architect and former Director of Development at Panmure House, Chris Watkins, told the story of the building from the time of the Scottish Enlightenment to the present day. We are pleased to be able to share this video of his fascinating talk with our followers.
