Sir Walter lived in the house whilst in Edinburgh from 1802 to 1826. During his time in the house, his career as a writer and poet really established, and it was in 1805 when The Lay of the Last Minstrel was widely recognized for its excellence did things take off for Scott.

In his time, Sir Walter lived in what was one of the most prestigious and luxurious properties in Edinburgh’s New Town. We have updated the apartment to modern standards to give you a stylish and comfortable place to stay during your visit to Edinburgh. We believe the apartment still has the same magical feel about it to inspire the creative spirit that helped Sir Walter create his masterpieces.

The apartment is in the ideal central location for any visit to Edinburgh and is within walking distance of any of the city’s major attractions. The world-famous Edinburgh castle is only a few minutes’ walk away, as are the many wonderful museums and galleries that Edinburgh has to offer. Edinburgh also has shops that rival any major city, all on the doorstep of the apartment. Take a look here to see our location.
