It was built in 1776 on a ‘gap’ site in George Square by Thomas Lockhart, the King’s Commissioner in Scotland and one of the leading Edinburgh socialites of his day. Originally an extension of the house at No 23, it has been a separate property for 180 years. In its time it has been a fashionable drawing room during the Scottish Enlightenment, a house and a church, latterly the Orthodox chaplaincy. Conan Doyle lived next door at 23, the boyhood home of Sir Walter Scott was No. 25 and Thomas Carlyle courted Jane Welsh at No. 22. 23A was extensively renovated in 2004 with the guidance of Historic Scotland to provide a unique blend of the new and the old in the centre of this historic square. Very conveniently located adjacent to the Meadows, the new Quartermile development and Edinburgh University. Within very easy walking distance of the Royal Mile, Princes Street and tourist attractions such as the National Museum, Greyfriars Bobby and the National Gallery.
