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The Gladstone Family originally made their home in the top floors of the building and rented out the lower floors to a Knight and his family, and a Minister from St Giles Cathedral amongst others. When the Trust rescued the building from demolition in 1934, a wealthy Edinburgh resident gifted the Trust to help renovate the property and create apartments for those of little means.
- Forming an essential part of Edinburgh's Old Town silhouette, the Gladstone Flat provides views over the city and into the hidden courtyards that surround the rear of the building. The area is famous for having the world's first sky scrappers and Gladstone's Land is one of those last remaining tenements.
The Gladstone flat takes pride of place at the top rear of the building and offers the perfect cosy base for exploring the city.

About the Mar Lodge Estate
At the heart of the Cairngorms National Park lies Mar Lodge, a restored Victorian sporting lodge set in 29,380 hectares of wilderness, heather and ancient pine.
 
Visited by nobility since the medieval period, this prime Highland estate is now recognised as one of Scotland's most important conservation sites. From significant archaeological finds, to rare wildlife, and four of Britain's highest mountains, the estate is a jewel in the crown of one of the country's most iconic landscapes.
 
About the Area
Royal Deeside weaves along the River Dee, overlapping the Cairngorms National Park and Aberdeenshire. Best known for its majestic scenery, it is also an area rich in wildlife from alpine flora to Scottish wildcats.
 
Deeside's most famous admirer, Queen Victoria, purchased the Balmoral estate in 1848, and the royal connections continue to this day, with Princes William and Harry being regular visitors to the area. The nearest town to Mar Lodge is Braemar where you'll find local amenities as well as bases for hiking and skiing.
 
Things to do

  • Adventure-lovers can test themselves with challenging mountain hikes, while gentler walks can be enjoyed along lowland paths through magnificent countryside.
