EDITORIAL This volume of the Journal of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland is based on proceedings of the Society's 1992 conference, Robert Adam: The Scottish Legacy, which was the culmination of a series of events marking the bicentenary of the architect's death. The articles in this volume are based on the papers delivered at this conference (the authors are indicated in the text) with some extra, related material added by authors who were working in the same area of research.

Abstract

This volume of the Journal of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland is based on proceedings of the Society's 1992 conference, Robert Adam: The Scottish Legacy, which was the culmination of a series of events marking the bicentenary of the architect's death. The articles in this volume are based on the papers delivered at this conference (the authors are indicated in the text) with some extra, related material added by authors who were working in the same area of research. In addition, the Journal is proud to continue its association with the Colin McWilliam Memorial Lecture, with the publication of the fourth in this series. As the conference title suggests, the emphasis in this issue is firmly on the Scottish context of Robert Adam's work; there are articles on personal and family matters as well as his architecture. Indeed, one thing to emerge from the essays in this volume is that there is a close connection between these two areas. The issue here is not so much Adam's legacy to Scotland, although his influence in Scotland and beyond is discussed, and, it might be argued, that the Scottish works constitute his legacy to us all: namely the buildings
