Took my parents and niece for a visit. To start the girl on the desk could not even work out how much it should cost. Took another member of staff to do it for her. Place was smaller than I expected and I think it would be helpful to warn people with limited walking ability/breathing/heart problems that lots of stairs are involved. It really marred our trip. It wasn't clear upon researching either that you had to pay.

The Georgian House is furnished as it was in the 17th Century when chief of Clan Lamont moved into this house in Edinburgh's fashionable New Town. Each room is staffed with knowledgeable guides, who are prepared to answer all questions regarding the house. Not to be missed is the video that tells about the Lamont family and their life in the house.

What a fascinating trip around the house. The guides were very good, and really interactive, particularly with the children. An excellent way to experience life in Georgian times in Edinburgh, away for the hustle of the main centre, although just off Princes Street. The short film was a great introduction.

Visited the Georgian House recently on a weekend trip to Edinburgh and was so pleased we did.
It's a fascinating insight into life in Georgian Edinburgh!
The tour starts with an excellent video illustrating life at the time - below and above stairs.
All the rooms are beautifully decorated in the style of the period, and each of the their guides were really knowledgeable and helpful in providing background information.
We went as we are National Trust members - go if you are and haven't visited - but I'd certainly recommend a visit to anyone!

A National Trust of Scotland Georgian House in the New Town part of Edinburgh. Very informative guides in all rooms plus information sheets. Guides very enthusiastic and very friendly. Lots of information in an introductory DVD. Well worth a visit. Free entry for National Trust members
