Charlotte Square, New Town, Edinburgh Photos

Charlotte Square incorporates four rows of mostly residential Georgian homes as planned by architect John Adam. While designed as individual homes, the facades taken together fool the eye into thinking each block is a single symmetrical palace. One of these houses is operated as The Georgian House.
