Wandering through the house doesn't take that long because it is so small, but there is and was a lot crammed into a very small space. After visiting Gladstone's Land, you can visit the Georgian House in the new town to see what the rich moved to, as soon as they could.
This visit includes guides in each room, who are there to both keep an eye on you and answer questions. This seems to attract little old ladies who really would like a chat and will answer the same question three times, even though you haven't actually asked it. There are also information sheets in each room.
Unfortunately, Gladstone's Land is only open from March to October. Each year the exact dates vary, and unfortunately, on my first visit to Edinburgh I arrived the day after it closed.
To find out opening dates and times you can ring 0131 226 5856 or try the National Trust of Scotland website: www.nts.org.uk
