Nestled on the doorstep of Edinburgh rests a fairytale castle straight from the pages of a childhood dream. Amongst rolling fields, woodland walks and enchanting walled gardens this idyllic destination is a magical oasis only 10 minutes away from Scotland’s enigmatic Capital city.
Originally designed and built by renowned Scottish architect David Rhind in 1852, the interior has been renovated by current owner Andrew Marshall to cleverly blend contemporary luxury with traditional Scottish heritage.
Roll top Copper baths rest beneath vibrant modern art, traditional marble floors support minimalist 21st century furnishings, flag stones and sweeping staircases lead to modern light filled atriums. The effect is one of intrigue and wonder, a melting pot of features and styles blending to embrace the beauty of history with the promise of today.
Each individually designed suite combines this intelligent mix of past and present with a unique ambience. From dark and sultry marble bathrooms with glamourous nickel bathtubs, to natural symphonies of earthy tones and soft hues, every room has a distinct character.
Beautifully crafted in sumptuous materials, rich velvets drape the handmade beds, bespoke Atelier 1852 cabinetry rest on deliciously sinkable carpets, whilst blooming orchids lend a touch of the exotic.
