New Register House

This building is recognisable by its wrought iron grilles and crowns on the gateposts, which indicate the offices of the Lord Lyon. In Scotland, the Lord Lyon is the King of Arms, responsible for matters concerning coats-of-arms, ascertaining who is clan chief, and officiating state ceremonial in Scotland.
