34 Ramsay Garden Row Houses in Edinburgh, Scotland

Overlooking Princes Street Gardens on The Mound is this stunning row of sixteen houses collectively called Ramsay Garden. They are named in honor of Allan Ramsay the Elder, a local wigmaker and poet who also established Britain’s first circulating library in 1726. He built the Ramsey Lodge on this site in 1733. By the late 19th century, the neighborhood had fallen into disrepair. So urban planner Sir Patrick Geddes hired architect Stewart Capper to create these magnificent apartments. They were completed in 1893.
