Town, district or village: Saughton Park
City or county: Edinburgh
Country: Scotland
Grid ref:
Notes: This pavilion is a prominent object, viewed from the railway from Edinburgh to Glasgow and the north. The Park of Saughton belongs to the Corporation of Edinburgh, and extends to about 100 acres, acquired some years ago at a cost of 55,000. The northern section is allocated to golf, football, and cricket. This building, therefore, is devoted to accommodating in a central position those taking part in these sports. The grounds devoted to football and cricket are made interchangeable, so that the building and sports area can be used in combination, these games being played, of course, at different times of the year. The pavilion is built of brick, and roughcast. Ruabon tiles are used on the roof, and all woodwork is painted white. The upper floor is allocated to the green-keeper. The building cost about 1,000, and was carried out to plans and under the supervision of the architect to the Corporation, Mr. James A. Williamson, ARIBA.
