Ramsay Garden stands proudly in the lee of Edinburgh Castle and forms an integral part of the city‘s skyline. This five bedroom period flat, according to many, therefore occupies one of the best addresses in Edinburgh – situated at the heart of the city the house is just minutes from Princes Street, the Royal Mile and Waverly Railway Station.

11/1 Ramsay Garden was built by Sydney Mitchell in 1892, and is connected to the earlier 18th century Ramsay Lodge. It was originally built to provide university halls of residence and flats for the use of the divinity faculty. Although the architect was nominally Professor Henbest Capper, it is generally accepted that the inspiration came from Patrick Geddes, sociologist and town planner, and Ramsay Garden is regarded by many as his most striking monument.
