House Histories Trail

A self-guided trail that reveals some of the stories behind the stone facades of Edinburgh's historic buildings.

The Old and the New Towns of Edinburgh together comprise one of the most beautiful cityscapes in the world, inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1995.

The unique character of the city comes from the striking contrast between the medieval Old and the Georgian New Town, with each area packed with many significant historic buildings.

This trail will take you to some of the city's most significant historic buildings, and reveal the human stories associated with them.
