About this location
The Edinburgh region
Edinburgh is located in the central belt of Scotland and within easy driving distance of Fife (Home of Golf), Glasgow (what was the second city of the British Empire), Stirling and Perth (the gateway to the Scottish Highlands).
The house is located in Edinburgh's historic Old Town which dates back to prehistoric times but many of whose extant buildings date back to the sixteenth century or earlier.
The house is located within a two minute walk of the Royal Mile the centre of Edinburgh's Old Town. The house is, indeed, located in the city centre. It is close to almost all of Edinburgh's historic and tourist sites.
Outside of Edinburgh and thanks to a certain Hollywood blockbuster movie, Rosslyn Chapel is
now Midlothian's most famous historic site.
Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is one of the UK's most popular destinations for visitors. It is a beautiful city, with architecture that is renowned throughout the world. However, Edinburgh is historically important too, having a major role in both Scottish and British history for hundreds of years. This is reflected in the many important buildings and monuments in the city.
Until the late 18th century, Edinburgh consisted mainly of what is now known as the Old Town (where you'll find the Castle, Royal Mile, and Grassmarket). The university was founded in 1583, jump-starting the city's educational and professional development. The Bank of Scotland was established in 1695, laying the foundations for Edinburgh's development into a leading financial capital by the end of the 20th century.
The Act of Union in 1707 joined Scotland and England politically, and transferred significant political powers from Edinburgh to London. By the late 18th century, Edinburgh had a population of 35,000. The increasingly overcrowded conditions led to many rich people leaving the city, principally to move to London. In the 1760s as a result of the continuing overcrowded and unhealthy conditions in the Old Town, there was a competition to design a New Town.
James Craig's winning design produced the current new city's grid-like street system. Building began in 1767 and was completed in 1810. Because of its culture, elegant layout, and its neo-classical architecture, Edinburgh became known as 'the Athens of the North'.
The city centre is dominated by the magnificent Edinburgh Castle (designated a world Heritage Site by UNESCO) which stands at the head of the Old Town perched high on its volcanic rock looking down on a city where medieval lanes and elegant, sweeping terraces hold over ten centuries of history, mystery and tradition.
Yet Edinburgh is also a modern, dynamic capital city where festivals attract the world's leading performers. Galleries display cutting-edge art, and bars, restaurants and clubs create a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a distinctly Scottish twist.
Each year during the summer months Edinburgh becomes the world's Festival City. The huge range and number of artistic events, performances and exhibitions throughout the city make a visit to Edinburgh unforgettable. It makes you feel that there is always something else happening around the corner which you are missing. There probably is - which is inevitably part of the joy of the Festival.
To make your stay more enjoyable and informed, we've put together a collection of websites to give you an idea of what Edinburgh has to offer. Whether it's the festival, the fringe or the tattoo, there is always something exciting happening that you won't find in any other city in the world.
Ghost tours, whisky tasting, ceilidh dancing, pubs, international restaurants, clubs, museums, art galleries, theatres, and cinemas are just a few of the things you will find in the links below.
