Scottish Baronial style architecture.

March 20, 2013

One the styles of architecture that I have admired for many years is an off shoot of Neo-Gothic, namely the Scottish Baronial style. Not as flamboyant as the Neo-Gothic, it is a more sedate, yet sophisticated style. The premier example of this is Ayton Castle, construction of which began in 1851, with continual expansions and renovations through the 1870s.

It actually had it’s origins in late 16th-17th century architecture, notably the Tudor-Jacobean styles, but came into it’s own in the 19th century.
