  • Quiet serene place to spend an afternoon. Nice sea views. Beautiful garden. Very near to cramond island. Can be combined with it.
  • Driven post loads of time. It's great here, cafe is very small and could offer a much wider range, I'm sure it would be popular if it offered proper meals. Loads to see, the Japanese garden is a real treat.
  • Lovely gardens ,house and small cafe-very popular with families and dog walkers
  • Enjoyed a picnic and a very nice walk here. Japanese garden is very nice.
  • Quiet Park & gardens. Great for children to explore.

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.
