Some friends live in a very interesting flat in a very old building in the middle of Edinburgh. It has a stone spiral staircase and some higgledy piggledy rooms. It was while I was staying there that I thought it would be a wonderful place to begin a book and so Harry and Charlotte, the children in the story, live in that flat.
