Product Description


Discover the Botanic Cottage, a unique survivor from a lost incarnation of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

Designed by two of the most renowned architects of the Georgian era, used as a classroom during the height of the Scottish Enlightenment, and serving as a home and a place of welcome for people from all walks of life, this small but handsome building has an important place in history. Yet by the mid-2000s it was threatened with demolition, set to be lost forever. Fortunately, a community campaign, working with the RBGE, had other ideas, and an audacious plan was hatched to dismantle, move and rebuild this extraordinary house in the current Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

This is the story of the Botanic Cottage.
