Scope and Content Entrance, No 3 Rothesay Terrace, Edinburgh No 3 Rothesay Terrace was remodelled in 1883 by the architect, Sydney Mitchell, for John Ritchie Findlay, proprietor of 'The Scotsman' newspaper. This photograph of the entrance was taken c.1890 by the architectural photographer, Harry Bedford Lemere. This elaborate central timber porch has detailed early-Renaissance style carving, and a pair of wrought-iron gates decorated with leaves and fruit. Above is a flared iron balcony, and to the right of the top step, an intricately designed iron bootscraper. Rothesay Terrace was one of the last terraces to be built in the 19th-century development known as Edinburgh's Western New Town. No 3, consisting of four storeys and basement, was very lavish, with rich exterior detail and Franco-Italian style interiors. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
