Archaeology Notes

NT27SE 257 25478 73428

101-105 West Bow. Three storeys and attic; base of fleur-de-lis finial dated 1561; 17th-century appears more likely. No 107: five storeys and attic; half a door lintel is inscribed ?BLESSED BE! GOD FOR ALL HIS GIFTIS 1616; the front to Grassmarket looks an early 18th-century reconstruction, but a stair-tower at W side supports a 17th-century origin.

RCAHMS 1951; J Gifford, C McWilliam and D Walker 1984.

For 107 West Bow, as described above, but numbered 105 West Bow on the current GIS map, see NT27SE 696 and NT27SE 98 Grassmarket.
