About this memory
During its transformation, Riddle's Court has been open to the public at selected times. Here the guide is showing visitors the heraldic ceiling in the Geddes Room which Patrick Geddes himself had commissioned for the undergraduate hall he installed there in the 1890s. Riddle's Court has also housed a police station, a subscription library, a boys' club and numerous other dwellings, offices and classrooms in its 450 year history.
