William Adam (1689 – 24 June 1748) was a Scottish architect, mason, and entrepreneur. He was the foremost architect of his time in Scotland, designing and building numerous country houses and public buildings, and often acting as contractor as well as architect. His grave, in the Edinburgh Greyfriers Kirkyard, was designed by his son, John Adam. The greatest wonder of all was that the first thing I had photographed on this day’s morning was the bridge that William Adam was famous for designing, over the River Tay.
