Gladstone's Land is a unique historic building that was built to be the home of the wealthiest residents in Edinburgh. The oldest part was constructed during the reign of Mary Queen of Scot's and reached its full magnificence when the Gladstone family purchased and extended the property in the early 1600's. We are often described as a 'hidden gem' and lie just a stone's throw away from Edinburgh Castle, in the heart of the 'Old Town'. Guests in our self-catering holiday apartments soak up the atmosphere of historic Edinburgh whilst enjoying arguably one of the best addresses the city has to offer. Read More >
The Gladstone Family originally made their home in the O'Neill apartment at the top front of the building and rented out the lower floors to a Knight and his family, and a Minister from St Giles Cathedral amongst others. You can still see hints of their original Renaissance hand painted cor on the exposed stone work, making our apartment unlike any other in the city.
Forming an essential part of Edinburgh's Old Town silhouette, the O'Neill Flat provides magnificent views over Edinburgh and Fife at the rear and shuttered windows at the front provide a glimpse of the Royal Mile. The area is famous for having the worlds first sky scrapers and the Gladstone's Land is one of those last remaining tenements. Stretching out over two upper floors and elegantly furnished in modern Scottish style, the apartment has an authentic atmosphere that blends contemporary luxury with period details and proudly boasts furnishings from the renowned Scottish textiles company, Anta.
