Visit the Georgian House to experience the elegance of 18th-century living in Edinburgh’s New Town. Designed in 1791 by Robert Adam, Scotland’s foremost 18th-century architect, Charlotte Square was one of the most fashionable and desirable residential addresses in the New Town. The Georgian House is a fine example of Adam’s urban architecture – ‘a grand design’.

Step inside and you will be transported back to the refined world of the first owner, Argyll-born landowner, John Lamont, 18th Chief of the Clan Lamont. Using period furnishings, original artworks and a vast collection of household items, the Georgian House faithfully re-creates the lifestyle of a wealthy family, as well as giving a fascinating insight into the social and economic conditions of the time.

A copy of the Edinburgh Courant newspaper from 1789 can be found in the parlour. The fall of the Bastille is reported, but wasn’t deemed important enough to make the front page!
