Barony House in the spotlight

Thistle Award Edinburgh Winner

We received a lovely email a few weeks ago informing us Barony House had been nominated for a ‘Thistle Award’ from the Scottish Tourist Board in the category of “Most Hospitable B&B/Guest House”. We were shocked but obediently went through the necessary steps to register and go along to the awards ceremony.

The big night finally rolled around and we were proud as punch to just attend the evening and soak up the atmosphere as a finalist.

Set within the stunning venue of The Stables at Prestonfield House in Edinburgh…

Dinner and of course champagne….


…and then this happened!

OMG! We won a Thistle!

We are both still in shock and are tremendously honoured and humbled to win such an accolade. Running a small B&B / Guest House is a labour of love and to have this kind of recognition was a very emotional and personal experience for our family.

Many thanks to all for your continued support. Ultimately we are just an ordinary working family sharing this beautiful city and community with the world. We don’t consider ourselves outstanding, we focus on remaining true to our core values of warmth and the love of life.

We want to dedicate this award to all the working families in the world. Our love to all. Susan, Paul and family xo
