History of Inchyra Estate
HOLD YOUR WEDDING BESIDE GRADE A LISTED REGENCY SPLENDOUR
Inchyra House was built in 1795 for an Edinburgh lawyer, James Anderson. Its architect, James Gillespie Graham, also designed the impressive Royal Bank of Scotland head office in St Andrew’s Square, Edinburgh. Graham was a follower of the renowned Georgian architect Robert Adam and several of Inchyra’s distinguishing neo-classical features are reminiscent of Adam’s iconic style.
Anderson marked his success by commissioning the celebrated Scottish artist Henry Raeburn to paint portraits of himself and his wife. The first chapter of Inchyra’s history belongs, therefore, to the Andersons.
