While I was in Edinburgh I visited 2 NT homes, and another one ... so got to see some history.
Gladstone's Land is said to be one of the oldest houses in the city ... and is certainly very dark in places, however one thing I did love was the painted ceiling in the main room

The othe NT property I went to was The Georgian House ... and as the name suggests it was built as Edinburgh was being extended in Georgian times, int what is now called The New Town.
Weirdly, the bedroom was on the ground floor, while the lounge was on the first floor.
As well as seeing NT properties I also visited John Knox's house. He got it from the previous owner who was actually one of the court goldsmith's and helped re-model the Scottish Crown Jewels. Another old house - with the painted ceilings
The Blue Blanket, dedicated at St Giles Cathedral. It was carried in the rescue of James III in 1482
