Fabulous to see the inside of such a great building. It has been restored with great skill and has so much to look at and get involved with. The people on hand are more that happy to talk and answer all sorts of questions (...More

Lovely furniture and silver, nicely displayed is a not overcrowded house museum. I am not a Georgian specialiost, so I was unfamiliar with the special Scottish character on many of the objects. Well worth the time.

A snapshot in historic time told in an excellent display and friendly informative guides. You probably need to be fit to climb the stairs but worth it. A good hour to 3 hours entertainment. Just the job for a wet Edinburgh day.

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
