The Rock House
The Rock House was (to quote the plaque on the wall outside) “the studio of pioneer photographers Robert Adamson and David Octavius Hill 1843-1847 and the Rock House, which is located up the first flight of steps up Calton Hill is now used as a holiday home. You have to access the building through a locked gate which also has a plaque on the wall and there are three accommodations within the site; the Rock House, The Terrace Apartment and the Photographers Studio. I photographed the first two and can’t wait to go back and photograph the third when it’s available.
Doing a search on Zoopla, the Rock House was sold mid 2017 for over £1.5 million and has been let as a holiday home. BNB Buddy who I work for recently acquired this property onto their books and spent a couple hours Friday photographing both. I’ll write things about each property below.
