||William Adam, senior, was the first strictly classical architect that Scotland produced and his
buildings are generally of sound quality. He is said to have begun his architectural career as
assistant to Sir-William Bruce of Balcaskie, who died in 1710, and whose works, along with
William Adams' own, practically monopolise the designs illustrated in the posthumously
published Vitruvius Scoticus.
