Royal Mile 2 - Ramsay Garden

We now turn our back to the castle and start wandering down, but soon turn left into a quiet little street called Ramsay Lane. Left again, and you now stand in one of Edinburgh’s most desirable and exclusive streets. Ramsay Garden consists of 16 large private apartments, designed by urban planner Patrick Geddes in the 1890s. At that time, the Old Town was in bad need of regeneration and so the Ramsay Garden development was part of a wider rehabilitation of the area. Fancy living here? A 5-bedroom apartment is currently for sale for just over £1,000,000…

Come back tomorrow for the next instalment of the Royal Mile tour (I am still away).
