Today, step back in time as you peruse the magnificently restored house and understand what typical Edinburgh New Townhouses of the late 18th and early 19th century were like. It cost the first owner John Lamont (18th Chief of the Clan Lamont) £1,800 in 1796, and he went on to splash out on silver, finery and lavish entertainment for his family.
