Short biography
George Scott-Moncrieff was a Scottish man of letters who wrote about the history, buildings, and countryside of Scotland.

Russell Kirk, a friend of Scott-Moncrieff, helped Burke Street get published in America for the first time, about which Kirk wrote, "This slim book about eighteenth-century walls and twentieth-century mentalities is a vindication of our neglected patrimony: our inheritance of a moral tradition and an architectural tradition. Its author deserves to be remembered."

Kirk wrote that Moncrieff knew "almost everybody in Scotland, from dukes and earls to the janitor of the Free Kirk College and Madame Doubtfire, who sold old clothes in the New Town. His Edinburgh is as realistic as Orwell's London."
