An ideal location ...

Duncan’s Land is located in the vibrant Stockbridge area of the city where you will find a wide range of interesting and unusual shops along with many cafes and restaurants. There is a small Sainsbury’s supermarket two minutes from the apartment open until 11.00 pm. The Water of Leith walkway is less than 5 minutes away, along which you can stroll to the Gallery of Modern Art in about half an hour. It’s a delightful walk and you wouldn’t think you were in the city – all you can hear is the water and the local wildlife. The city center and Princes Street is within easy walking distance and has an excellent bus service. A Starbucks coffee shop is just round the corner - and you are just ten minutes walk from city center restaurants.

Edinburgh city centre ...

The city centre, Princes Street and the Royal Mile are within easy walking distance - uphill going there but downhill coming back! It’s a five minute taxi ride but there is also an excellent bus service. Edinburgh is the home of the Edinburgh International Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe, the Jazz and Blues Festival and many more. Google ‘Edinburgh Festivals’ for a full guide. Edinburgh is also a city of culture throughout the year with art galleries, theatres, concert halls and cinemas. Other attractions include Edinburgh castle, Holyrood palace, the Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Dungeon, Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh Zoo (with the pandas), the National Gallery of Scotland and the Modern Art Gallery, the Royal Botanic Gardens as well as the Georgian New Town and the historic Royal Mile.

Wonderful local walks ...

The Water of Leith walkway is less than 5 minutes from the apartment. You can stroll to the Gallery of Modern Art or the Dean Gallery in about half an hour and get a coffee before deciding to return. Dean village, described as 'a tranquil green oasis on the Water of Leith', is half way and really beautiful. Six Antony Gormley statues are located on the Water of Leith. One is just under the bridge next to the apartment and another is at the entrance to the Modern Art gallery.

A little bit of history ...

Duncan’s Land is a merchant's house built about 1790 from the stones of demolished buildings in Edinburgh’s Old Town. It was the birthplace of the artist, David Roberts (1796-1864), who worked as a scene painter at Edinburgh's Theatre Royal and London's Covent Garden. In 1830, he was appointed President of the Society of British Artists. During the following decade he toured the Far East, producing a celebrated series of paintings of Egyptian scenes and antiquities. A plaque on the wall of the house celebrates his birthplace.

A stone lintel, with the inscription, ‘Fear God Onlye, 1605’ was orig,inally in a property on Bank street just off the Royal Mile. We think the staircase probably came from the same site. Duncan's Land is mentioned in Cassell's Old and New Edinburgh by James Grant, which was printed as a periodical in the 1880s. A drawing of Duncan's Land by E. W. Cooke R.A., is dated 1853 and appears in Ballantine, J., (1866), The life of David Roberts, R.A. published by Adam and Charles Black, Edinburgh.
