Blackie House

Building information from ne Begg Architects / Morris & Steedman Associates:

On the north side of the court Blackie House, a late 17th century tenement of the Milne’s Court type but shallower in plan. The building was remodelled in 1894 under the auspices of Patrick Geddes as a university hall in memory of Professor J.S. Blackie. This Old town property was sold in 1950 and turned into flats by Robert Hurd Architect.
