Gladstone's Land

The best preserved Old Town tenement building, dating to around 1600.

Gladstone's Land represents a last reminder of a style of living that was once common in Edinburgh. Richer people would live on the middle floors, poorer folk at the top and in the basement, with a shop on the ground floor. The building is located on the Lawnmarket, and is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland.
