Each level is linked by the old school staircase which gives a hint to one of its many lives over its 400-year-old history.
Cannonball House is truly steeped in history and offers all the character you would expect from an Edinburgh Old Town building that dates back to the 17thC. Cannonball House captures all the mystery and history of the Royal Mile. You’ll be drinking tea in the shadows of the first Duke Gordon, the first key keeper of Edinburgh Castle who originally owned Cannonball House.
The building is now owned by The Edinburgh Military Tattoo and is run by married Edinburgh restaurateurs, Victor and Carina Contini.
