My husband and I visited this Georgian House and found it to be a really interesting place. The guides are very welcoming and are happy to share their knowledge. You can walk around the house yourself and the film at the beginning is very informative.

I had planned a not too long a visit, but...... Two and a half hours later I thought it was time for lunch. Wonderful guides who willingly answered all possible questions. Learned a lot! They were clever in those days!

This was Downton Abbey in Edinburgh, a step back in time when the pace of life was either very slow or very fast. Upstairs you had it all, dressing up for dinner, whilst downstairs it's work work and more work, worth a visit

It is worth a visit and shows how the first owner lived (and his servants ) in 1796. Does not take long to see , only about 30/45 minutes.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
