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 >
Our comfortable holiday accommodation is separate to the visitor attraction; housed in the upper floors of the building. Our self-catering flats provide everything you will need to enjoy this home away from home. Guests in our holiday flats will soak up the atmosphere of historic Edinburgh whilst enjoying arguably one of the best addresses that the city has to offer.
The Harrison Flat is a homely apartment with windows that overlook a traditional Edinburgh courtyard, surrounded by buildings in Scotch Baronial architecture. With the writer's museum next door and the castle nearby, the Harrison Flat is right in Edinburgh's cultural and historic heart. The perfect home away from home.

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
