Edwardian Splendour
We spent 9 nights is this beautiful Edwardian guest house. It is perfectly situated for easy access to the walking/cycling paths and public transit into the heart of Edinburgh. We were in room 1 which has an outstanding view of the Edinburgh skyline from Edinburgh Castle to Arthur's seat. Our room was spotlessly clean, very nicely decorated and high quality bedding and bath linens. The breakfast has a choice of a full breakfast or an excellent choice of cold items. The owners went out of their way to accommodate the needs of those with special dietary requirements. We can't thank the owners of Ravensdown, David and Yoka, enough for their kindness and graciousness. They made the stay even more special.

Georgian House - Edinburgh - Historical Houses

Distance 1.37 miles (2.19 km)
The Georgian House is part of Robert Adam's masterpiece of urban design, Charlotte Square. It dates from 1796, when those who could afford it began to escape from the cramped, squalid conditions of Edinburgh's Old Town to settle in the fashionable New Town. The first owner, John Lamont, 18th Chief of the Clan Lamont, lived here with his family until 1815. The house's collections of beautiful china, shining silver, paintings and furniture all reflect the domestic surroundings and social conditions of the times. In the audio-visual room, video programmes describe the history of the New Town and in more dramatic form A Day in the Life of The Georgian House.

Edinburgh is the breathtakingly beautiful capital of Scotland, an exciting place to visit at any time of year. Edinburgh offers you superb sightseeing, historic buildings to explore, quiet galleries and museums to intrigue you, thrilling new attractions to discover, serious shopping, a vast choice of excellent Restaurants, Bistros, Wine Bars, Pubs and Cafes, and nightlife to suit all tastes. When the Picts built a fort on a volcanic crag in the 5th century, to protect Scotland from the invading Angles of Northumberland, Edinburgh's history began. The present Castle, was built on the site by Michael Canmore (1057-93); his wife St. Margaret, built the chapel which you can still visit today.
