We drove through this area on each of the coach trips. The buildings are beautiful. You can tell this is the pricy area of the city.

I only found this attraction on the Rabbies City Tour. The home is so full of little details that you may miss unless you talk to the excellent volunteer guides. There is so much to see and it is quite amazing to find how sophisticated...More

This house is a delight to visit. It gives an insight into Georgian life in Edinburgh when the Lamont family were in residence. I love this type of museum particularly as it was not stuffy in any way. The rooms with all the period furniture,...More

Edinburgh is a city of much history. The Georgian Period is only part of that history, but the architecture and style of this period is wonderful and remains viable today.

A worthwhile visit but not as extensive as we would have wished. We as National Trust Members were free & I would venture a charge of £10 would be just about right. Enjoyable background video re the history to the house, & hopefully in time...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
