A dormant volcano reaching 251m above sea level, it provides a picturesque escape from the urban lifestyle of the city, in a landscape largely unchanged since the 16th Century. Whether taking the low-level paths for amateur walkers, or the adventurous route for those more experienced, all visitors to the peak of Arthur’s seat will be greeted with breath-taking panoramic views of Edinburgh.

History enthusiasts will delight in close proximity to the National Museum of Scotland with a vast collection of exhibitions covering everything from astrology to Ancient Egypt.

Eating out in Edinburgh is an event in itself, with an unrivalled selection of award-winning fine-dining venues and slick wine bars, complemented by quaint tea rooms, pavement cafés and country public houses.

Encapsulating Edinburgh’s traditional charm are venues such as The Sheep Heid Inn, thought to be Edinburgh’s oldest pub, which has been serving patrons quality food and drinks for over six centuries. Boasting a wine club and a popular fixed menu, along with an open fire and vintage furnishings, The Sheep Heid promises a charming dining experience in traditional and relaxed surrounds.

Tea rooms are plentiful in Edinburgh and offer a luxury refreshment break for those exploring this fascinating city on foot. Within walking distance of these new homes in Edinburgh is the exclusive Palace of Holyroodhouse, which serves stunning afternoon tea in its historic mews courtyard. Home-made cakes are accompanied by fresh pastries and delicate sandwiches along with the patron’s choice of loose-leaf tea or quality champagne. The Palace itself is home to Her Majesty the Queen during Holyrood week in late July and offers visitors guided tours of this fascinating building, abbey and its breath-taking chambers.

Scotland’s first rooftop restaurant boasts spectacular views of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, Old Town and world-famous Castle, while offering inspirational menu which showcases some of Scotland’s freshest produce. Award-winning chef John Gilmour is an expert butcher who presents an impeccable menu featuring rib-eye steak, Dingwall haggis and Isle of Mull lobster thermidor, while watercress beetroot risotto and shallot chive mousse are amongst the most popular vegetarian options.

Hearty brunch and light lunches are also catered for, while an extensive wine list presents over 12 varieties of champagne, an innovative cocktail collection and exclusive wines from all over the world, all served within the iconic mosaic bar or glamorous roof top terrace.
