The National Trust for Scotland’s property on the Royal Mile is a typical seventeenth-century Old Town Edinburgh ‘land’ or tenement building (apartment block), which visitors can explore. Thomas Gledstanes, a merchant, bought the property on 20th December 1617. He and his family probably occupied an apartment on the third floor and rented out the rest of the building, including two luckenbooths (shops) at street level, to tenants from various backgrounds. On view are six display rooms furnished with objects of the period, including an original painted ceiling from 1620, to give a flavour of life in the seventeenth century.
