Statement of Interest

By Sir Thomas Duncan Rhind (1871-1927). The design incorporates elements of Arts and Crafts detailing such as white harling and casement windows, combined with Glasgow Style saucer domed tower and tapering chimney stacks. Succouth Gardens were once part of the Murrayfield Estate; Succouth Avenue is on the site of an original approach avenue to the house. The name Succoth came from an owner of the house Sir George Campbell of Succoth.
