Cardinal Beaton’s House

The house owned by Cardinal Beaton which dated back to the early sixteenth century was demolished in 1874 when the Cowgate was being cleared under the city improvement act. Many of the houses belonged to the upper class. When they moved to the New Town the interiors of the properties were divided by partitions and let out to working class citizens.
