Tweeddale Court

Tweeddale Court can be found down a short close leading to the south from the Royal Mile, almost opposite John Knox House.

The house at the back of the court is Tweeddale Mansion.  It was built for  the daughter of the first Earl of Lothian.

It later became the Head Office of the British Linen Bank.  From 1817 to 1973, the building was occupied by the publishers Oliver & Boyd.
