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
No. 7 Charlotte Square in Edinburgh’s New Town is managed by the National Trust and concentrates on how life was during the late 1700s and early 1800s when the Lamont family lived here. Generally the advice is to start at the top floor and work...More
It was a quick walk to this lovely house on Charlotte Square. We saw an interesting film of the time period when the house was occupied by John Lamont and family and then self toured the house. The kitchen in the basement is amazing -...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
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
The house was, when built, one of the poshest houses in New Town and is gradually being renovated with the majority done already, and the attic rooms, which would have been the old nursery, hopefully to be finished in the next couple of years.
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.
