  • This is an absolutely wonderful little spot with so many hidden corners. It really is an oasis of calm in the city but at the same time kids are welcome and there is plenty to explore.  more »
  • Small quiet garden, beautifully situated by a small lake, took taxi there but it got a little walk to the bus from there. The diner had unfortunately closed for the day when we got there otherwise no special Aha experience

  • Beautiful gardens with a view out over Duddingston Loch. Small pond with a bridge and seating areas inside the gardens. Cafe at the top, and a visitor book at the gate. Some parts may not be suitable for pram or wheelchair users.
  • Really nice place to take the kids for a walk. Easy wee walk and loads to see in beautiful surroundings.
  • Very beautiful surroundings! Must visit.
  • This place is hard to find. To get in you have to either open the gate on main road or go into the Kirk and take a sharp left through a cafe. Once you actually work out how to get in its brilliant. Big, free and peaceful with loads of great nooks and crannies with seats all over. Best in summer but still has herbs that you can smell in other months. Some of the paths may be unsuitable for wheelchair users. Great free hideaway. When you comeer out go try the pub up the road called 'The sheep's heid', it's from the 14 century.
  • Super hidden away but well worth finding.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
