Home of Walter Scott, George Square
"From Prestonpans* I was transported back to my father's house in George's Square, which continued to be my most established place of residence, until my marriage in 1797. I felt the change from being a single indulged brat, to becoming a member of a large family, very severely; for under the gentle government of my kind grandmother, who was meekness itself, and of my aunt, who, though of an higher temper, was exceedingly attached to me, I had acquired a degree of licence which could not be permitted in a large family."
-- Memoir Of The Early Life Of Sir Walter Scott, written by himself

* Scott's aunt took him there for sea-bathing to ameliorate his lameness
