“A 17th century tenement house , one of the oldest buildings on the Royal Mile, can only be visited by guided tour and it's great if you want to find out more about how life was in the Old Town of Edinburgh in the 17th century. There is a shop on the ground floor where you can buy real Scottish souvenirs, tasteful and good quality stuff actually made in Scotland.”
