Inverleith House



Inverleith House review Rate it

Bang in the middle of the Botanics, this imposing, austere, late Georgian building was designed in 1774 by David Henderson for James Rocheid, whose family owned the Inverleith estate. The house eventually became the home of the garden's Regius Keeper and then, from 1960 until 1984, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, but it's now owned and run by the Royal Botanic Garden. Exhibitions are largely contemporary, with the likes of Louise Bourgeois and John McCracken having featured in recent years, although at least one botanical exhibition is usually staged each year for good measure.
