The Georgian House (No. 7 Charlotte Square) is an fine example of 18th century New Town architecture. The façade was designed, as part of the Charlotte Square development, by the world class architect, Robert Adam. The houses in the Square were built by speculative builders while James Craig created the street plan. Edmund Butterworth built No. 7 Charlotte Square for John Lamont, 18th Chief of the Clan Lamont. The Lamont family lived in their new home from 1796 until 1815. The Georgian House contains a fine collection of 18th century furniture and fittings.
