My experience in the Scotsman hotel was fabulous. The attention to detail and customer service provided by all staff was exceptional. This is a relaxing, non-pretentious and welcoming five star hotel. Thank you to Adam and Dermot for making our stay very special.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
