Sir Walter Scott’s house – 39 North Castle Street, Edinburgh

39 North Castle Street lies within Edinburgh’s historic New Town. The ‘New Town’ is a masterpiece of city planning and was built in stages between 1767 and 1850, in the neo-classical and Georgian architectural style.

Sir Walter Scott bought the property in 1802 and lived here until 1826. The property is category A listed and retains many original period features. One of which is the gravestone of his trusted dog Camp, which is buried in the garden.

Hermitage Windows was commissioned to restore, draught-proof, and paint the original timber sash and case windows as well as restore and paint the original wooden shutters.

Whenever you are restoring a listed property special care and attention must be taken to ensure the fabric of the building and the features are retained and preserved. Through our close relationship with Historic Scotland and our past experience with working on some of Scotland’s most important historical properties, we have built up the knowledge and expertise to carry out such projects with extremely high attention to detail.
