Our tour guide was great about explaining why the houses were built the way they were and how they were used back in the day. It was fascinating.

This is a beautiful, fully furnished example of the Georgian period houses erected at the time of Edinburgh's New Town development. It is owned and operated by the Scottish National Trust and is well worth a visit.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods 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
