Artist's Description

Dundas House, designed by Sir William Chambers and built in 1774 for Sir Lawrence Dundas and acquired by the Royal Bank of Scotland in 1821. Dundas House is the registered Head Office of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group in St Andrew Square, Edinburgh, Scotland.

In the garden is a lifesize bronze pedestrian statue with horse depicting John, 4th Earl of Hoptoun (no idea what his horse was called). The statue was commissioned for Charlotte Square by the City, but deemed unsuitable and they eventually persuaded the Bank to accept it in 1834 as Lord Hopetoun had been Governor of the Bank from 1820-23.
