Hopetoun House Architect
William Adam 1689 – 1748
Scottish Architect, noted for his design of Scottish country houses. Adam was born near Kirkcaldy and was the father of the architects James, John and Robert Adam (1728-92). He worked on Floors Castle (1718) with architect Sir John Vanbrugh. William Adam’s most impressive work is probably Hopetoun House.

The Adam family also had a house in Edinburgh on what is now Chambers Street. Adam House (1954-55) by William Kininmonth, part of the University of Edinburgh, now stands on the site. William Adam is buried in Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh, in a mausoleum designed by his son, John.
