Built in the 1870's, Eglinton Crescent forms part of the western New Town in the elegant and historic West End of Edinburgh. This wonderful crescent with its grand architecture overlooks beautifully maintained tree lined private gardens. With the spires of St Mary's cathedral as a backdrop is 14 Eglinton Crescent. This property was once the home of David Alan Stevenson one of the famous family of lighthouse engineers and the cousin to the author Robert Louis Stevenson. David's daughter, the renowned authoress Dorothy Emily Stevenson was born in the house. Dorthy's Grandfather was Lord Roberts of Kandahar V.C. Chief of British military staff and a close friend of Rudyard Kipling. It is interesting to speculate that perhaps they may have all enjoyed the hospitality of No 14 - Why don't you?

Edinburgh City Centre
The Old Town of Edinburgh is built on a ridge that rises gradually from the Palace of Holyrood to Edinburgh Castle. There are staircase lanes, called Wynds, that lead off this 'Royal Mile' that give the impression of the city being built on multiple levels and buildings that date from the 11th Century. The New Town is also a World Heritage Site with its mix of Georgian town houses and the earliest examples in Europe of tenement flats. The views to be had from the Castle, Arthur's Seat and Carlton Hill are dramatic and inspiring.
