Rooted amid the manicured greenery of a parkland estate, Carberry Tower provides travellers with a lofty refuge on the fringes of Edinburgh’s scattered city limits. The Caledonian capital is draped across valleys and hills, belying a wealth of secrets between its motley assembly of tenements, backstreets, and cobbled avenues. Originally the basin of the drained Nor Loch, the lush parade of Princes Street Gardens splits the city’s heart into the New and Old Towns, affording Edinburgh a twofold appeal. New Town is a splendid network of townhouses and high end boutiques, while Old Town plunges visitors into a scramble of markets, bookshops, and lively alehouse sing-songs.

Castle break with full Scottish breakfast each morning plus wine and chocolates on arrival
Offsetting its 15th century frontage with an interior trove of modern comforts, Carberry Tower indulges guests with blossoming views across its 35 acre estate. Visiting pairs can get their stay off to a fruitful start with a bottle of wine on arrival, before nibbling at dainty chocolates as they settle into a homely en-suite room. The hotel’s historic beauty is made manifest in authentic wood panelling and stained glass windows, establishing a regal atmosphere as wayfarers explore its stately turrets and nooks. A full Scottish breakfast each morning will treat hungry travellers to sausage, toast, and more goodies to fuel appetites for rambling country walks or perhaps a trip into Edinburgh.
A brief jaunt beyond the hotel door will take visitors to the town of Musselburgh where history-lovers can take stroll over an original Roman bridge. Venturing into the city, wide-eyed travellers can treat their senses at the Victorian camera obscura, where travelable views of the city have astonished folk for over a century. A quick march down Old Town’s Royal Mile will bring pairs to the gates of Holyroodhouse house palace, a part-time home to The Queen which overlooks 650 acres of lush grassland. Holyrood Park swells into the noble crags of Arthur’s Seat where climbers can take in unparalleled views of spires, streets, and gardens from the highest point in the city. Edinburgh boasts a dense literary heritage, offering bookworms the chance to tour numerous pubs, cafes, and similar establishments once frequented by the likes of Rabbie Burns and Arthur Conan Doyle.

Staff were excellent even to the extent of helping us book theatre tickets fine concierge services. The new bar area had just opened on the ground floor which has a cosy atmosphere with just the right level of sophistication. Our rooms were comfortable and distinctive
