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

Wonderfully maintained Georgian property in a evocative Square. The house has a wonderful dignity and grace about it. Perfectly maintained by the National Trust with engaged and knowledgable staff. Wondering about here and absorbing the history and tales of the past was a lovely way...More
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.
