Ramsay Garden

Orientation & Geography

Europe, United Kingdom, City of Edinburgh

Ramsay Garden (or Ramsay Gardens) is a block of sixteen private apartment buildings in the Castlehill area of Edinburgh, Scotland. They stand out for their red ashlar and white harled exteriors, and for their prominent position, most visible from Princes Street. Developed into its current form between 1890 and 1893 by the biologist, botanist and urban planner Patrick Geddes, Ramsay Garden started out as Ramsay Lodge, a block of Georgian "garden homes" built by the poet and wig-maker Allan Ramsay the Elder in 1733.
