At 11am on Sunday 10 September the well attended Blueprint Guided Architecture Walk got under way lead by Blue Badge Guide Perri Hopkinson. The hour long event, which was Blueprint's contribution to the hugely successful, inaugural Outwith Festival, saw a group of 16 make their from Pittencrieff Park to the Public Park by way of the HIgh Street using Blueprint's City Centre History Map. Perri pointed out many things of interest including the beautiful Grecian design of the former Prudential Building on East Port, the mini-Edinburgh style architecture of many town centre buildings and racy story of Abbot House's one time owner lady Anne Halkett. The walk finished at the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum where the group was given a special tour.
If you would like to conduct your own self guided architecture walk, copies of the Blueprint Map are available free at the Birthplace Museum and Fire Station Creative.
