Wrights Hall, Watergate, Perth

This 18th century building, on what was once the most important street in Perth, was the meeting place of the Wrights Incorporation. During the '45 it was used as a hospital. Provost James Cree, who lived on the top floor of the building was taken hostage by the Jacobite forces as surety for the payment of money by the town. One of the doorways has the date '1725' above it. The building interior has been completely gutted and rebuilt.


A private building. No access to the interior.
