Gladstone's Land is a beautiful property often described as a 'hidden gem'. Lying just a stone's throw from Edinburgh Castle, on the Royal Mile, in the area known as 'Old Town'. The main part of our unique building dates as far back as 1550. The National Trust for Scotland rescued the property from demolition in the 1930's and has since restored the interiors of the first two floors to show how they would have looked and been used by tenants in circa 1620. The reconstructed cloth booth, priceless Renaissance painted interior, and many other rare features gives visitors a unique insight into the life and work of Edinburgh's citizens almost 400 years ago.  Read More >

About the Mar Lodge Estate
At the heart of the Cairngorms National Park lies Mar Lodge, a restored Victorian sporting lodge set in 29,380 hectares of wilderness, heather and ancient pine.
 
Visited by nobility since the medieval period, this prime Highland estate is now recognised as one of Scotland's most important conservation sites. From significant archaeological finds, to rare wildlife, and four of Britain's highest mountains, the estate is a jewel in the crown of one of the country's most iconic landscapes.
 
About the Area
Royal Deeside weaves along the River Dee, overlapping the Cairngorms National Park and Aberdeenshire. Best known for its majestic scenery, it is also an area rich in wildlife from alpine flora to Scottish wildcats.
 
Deeside's most famous admirer, Queen Victoria, purchased the Balmoral estate in 1848, and the royal connections continue to this day, with Princes William and Harry being regular visitors to the area. The nearest town to Mar Lodge is Braemar where you'll find local amenities as well as bases for hiking and skiing.
 
Things to do

  • Adventure-lovers can test themselves with challenging mountain hikes, while gentler walks can be enjoyed along lowland paths through magnificent countryside.
