Over 400 years ago Gladstone’s Land on the Royal Mile was home to some of the city’s wealthiest residents; within its walls are the secrets of life in one of the ‘world’s first skyscrapers’.
Amongst our residents were the notorious Knight Sir James Creichton, whose stay in Edinburgh was overshadowed by a dark secret; and sweet Miss Nellie and her maid servant Kitty, left behind in the overcrowded Old Town by her wealthy peers when they migrated to the spacious New Town.
Tours we offer include:
• A self-guided, interactive tour of ‘Old Edinburgh’ apartments on the fi rst two floors of Gladstone’s Land
• A special extended guided tour
• City of Magic: Harry Potter Town & House Tour (with owl flying)
