About Lamb's House
Lamb's House, a 5-storey A-listed building in the heart of Leith, is one of Edinburgh's most interesting buildings and is just a stone's throw from the historic port of Leith. Built around 1610, it is believed to have been a tenement of "serviced" flats for Edinburgh Burgers with booths on the ground floor.
About Leith
Leith is located to the north of Edinburgh on the shore of the Firth of Forth and served as the city's port for hundreds of years. It was once a hub of manufacturing and commercial activity, including whaling, shipbuilding and Scotland's largest leadworks. Today, Leith is known as a vibrant district of Edinburgh, where some of the city's best restaurants have replaced the old traditional industries. The much-acclaimed and Michelin-starred Martin Wishart is 70 metres from the front door of the Pavilion.
Things to do

  • The Georgian House (NTS), on Edinburgh's Charlotte Square, is a restored Robert Adam-designed town house that was home to John Lamont, 18th Chief of the Clan Lamont, and his family until 1815. It gives a fascinating insight into life both upstairs and downstairs.

  • The Royal Yacht Britannia was a home to Queen for over 40 years, sailing over a million miles around the world. It is now berthed at Ocean Terminal in Leith, just a short walk from Lamb's House.

  • The Water of Leith flows from the Pentland Hills (south of Edinburgh) through the city and out into the Forth at Leith. A walkway runs beside it from Balerno to Leith (12 miles).

Getting there
Leith is in the north of Edinburgh, 3 miles from the city centre. It is very well serviced by bus routes. < Hide

About Rockcliffe
Rockcliffe forms part of the Trust's conservation area, a sweep of coastline that runs along the shores of the Solway Firth. Painted white villages such as Rockcliffe itself and Kippford line the seafront. Inland, the shore gives way to patches of ancient woodland and wildflower meadows. A network of trails weaves through the area, including the Jubilee Path between Rockcliffe and Kippford.
About the area
Colvend village is about a mile away where you'll find a post office, general store, farm shop and golf course as well as a new Tourist Information office. Seven miles further is the country town of Dalbeattie, once famous in the early 19th century for its mills and granite industry. As well as shops for stocking up there's also a museum featuring an exhibition on Titanic's First Officer Murdoch, a local from the town.
Things to do

  • Pay a visit to Kirkcudbright, the 'artists' town', a short drive away. Visit the rose-pink 18th century Broughton House, once home to Glasgow Boys artist E A Hornel, and stock up on fresh fish for tea.

  • Rough Island, a bird sanctuary also owned by the Trust, can be reached on foot at low tide. There you'll see oystercatchers and ringed plovers - but please leave dogs behind!

  • Tee off on one of the area's 30 golf courses. Portpatrick's 9-hole course is close to the ruined Dunskey Castle which juts on a promontory out to sea.

Getting there
Rockcliffe is 7 miles S of Dalbeattie, off the A710. < Hide
