Advocates Close

Steep, narrow and standing since Medieval times, Advocates Close is just off the Royal Mile. Once a fashionable part of town for Scotland’s gentry, the area was fully redeveloped in the 21st century – but maintains much of its historic charm. It gets its name from local resident James Stewart, who was Lord Advocate of Scotland during the Stuart Era.
