  • Really nice place, was there for a kids' Halloween party and it rocks all the boxes! Amazing setting and staff very attentive. Loved the old kitchen
  • Superb. Put on your to do list. There is something about walking into a house that is set as it was in 19 whatever, history never my strong point but seeing how Edinburgh Museums have preserved this house for us to see today is remarkable.
  • Lovely walks great for kids to run about amazing scenery lovely little cafe and you can book a tour round the house
  • Spent a really nice afternoon here. Grounds are very pretty and free to walk around, there's a nice cafe and in the summer there is outdoor theatre.
  • Lovely castle with extensive grounds, Japanese garden and cafe. There are daily tours of the castle interiors, well worth going on and a great programme of events and workshops throughout the year. Dogs are welcome in the grounds and cafe exterior.

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.
