Interesting, well presented and a lovely bit of peace in the middle of the city. Very helpful volunteers and some real characters. Lovely.

We were staying just around the corner and decided to visit on our last morning in the city. We really enjoyed it. The self-guided tour begins with a short film which is both very informative and interesting and whets the appetite for viewing the different rooms. There are staff members in each room, some more knowledgeable than others, but all... More

In area of New Town close to Royal Mile. Authentic, original house built in late 1700's. Depicts actual owners and lifestyles of the time.

Although members of the National Trust No 7 Charlotte Square had been missed off our Edinburgh visit radar. But I'm so glad my Wife and I visited. It's a fascinating place and only took us an hour to tour around (we weren't rushing). It does give you a sense of what it was like (start at the top after watching... More

The Georgian House is really great and captures the atmosphere of the age. Helpful guides in each room to explain details. Recommend you see the film on the second floor first which shows the life of the family living there in the Georgian period.

While not as grand as many other NTS properties, the Georgian House is well worth a visit and provides a very good insight as to how wealthy families lived in Georgian times. The video presentation is particularly good.

Fascinating glimpse into high society in 18th-Century Edinburgh. A film at the beginning introduces the first owners of the house and gives a feel for the aristocratic way of life. There is also a downstairs area that shows the servants' quarters and gives you a good idea of the amount of manpower that was needed to support an aristocratic lifestyle.... More

Visited this property recently, and whilst we had to do a 'whistle stop' tour, because we were late getting there, it is well worth a visit and we will go back and spend more time there. A beautiful house.

Visited here Sunday morning and it was open at 10. Easy to find as just off Princes Street. Good documentary film about the house then you work your way down the floors to see rooms etc. The staff and guides were very helpful. There are toilets and a shop. It is Scottish Nat Trust but you get in free as... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods 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 the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
