Let Rick Steves Edinburgh Hotels come to the rescue with his third edition of ‘Rick Steves Scotland’!

We are delighted to be featured and you can read our Rick Steves Scotland write up on us below:


$$ Barony House, the best value of all these places, is run with infectious enthusiasm by Aussies Paul and Susan.

Their seven doubles are each named and themed and lovingly decorated by Susan, who’s made the beautiful friezes and fabric headboards and created some of the art (she also bakes welcome cake for guests). Two of the rooms are next door, in a former servants’ quarters, now a peaceful retreat with access to a shared kitchen (3-night minimum preferred in summer). “

Here are some of Edinburgh’s must see Attractions:

Craigmillar Castle Edinburgh

Craigmillar Castle : Featured in the Netflix movie “Outlaw King” starring Chris Pyne, he played Robert The Bruce who was the first King of Scotland so we highly recommend Craigmillar Castle because the the best part about this castle is you will most likely be one of only a few people visiting which is a truly unique experience in the UK’s second most visited city!

Arthur’s Seat – right on our doorstep!

Arthur’s Seat : Edinburgh’s #1 attraction! The nature lover will love this ‘must see’ attraction and luckily Barony House is perfectly positioned to start a hike to the top because we are only a 19 minute walk to the base from our front door!

A big thank you to Rick Steves Edinburgh and the team for the fabulous write up and for featuring Barony House in this essential travelers guide.
