The house where Adam Smith lived for many years with his mother and which more recently was used as a home for troubled youth has been put up for sale by the Edinburgh Council for Â£700,000. Sir Alan Peacock says "It’s a disgrace that the council has
agreed to dispose of a building as significant as this. It should be
saved for the nation."
I think it would be a disgrace if the house went to anyone but the highest bidder.
