Gladstone’s Land is a historic high-rise tenement that spans nearly 500 years of Edinburgh’s history. The six rooms across two floors recreate the life of those who called it home, including a wealthy laird’s apartment in the 1600s, a merchant shopkeeper, and the servants who did the dirty work.

Inside its walls await treasures such as an iconic Scottish Renaissance painted interior and countless stories of daily life, death, and drama.
