Gladstone's Land

483 Lawnmarket, Edinburgh

Thomas Gledstane

This building at 483 Lawnmarket was originally built in 1550.  It was bought by Thomas Gledstane, who extended and redeveloped it in 1617.  He lived in part of the building and rented out other parts of it.

In 1934 the building was condemned and scheduled for demolition, but was rescued by the National Trust for Scotland who bought it, fully restored it, fitted it with period decoration and furniture and opened it to the public as 'Gladstone's Land'.

Mounted to the front wall of the building is a gilt-copper hawk with outstretched wings holding a mouse in its claws.  'Gled' (as in Gledstane) is the Scots word for .hawk'.
