Great projects and a testimony to the quality and variety of Scottish architecture. Feel sorry for the 5 that didn't make it as there was some beautiful buildings there (David Blaikie, Nicoll Russell etc) but then its not all about winning awards is it (but it is nice!) A good building, happy client and a fee paid is more than enough these days!
