We are delighted to be featured and you can read our Rick Steves Scotland write up on our Rick Steves Edinburgh Bed and Breakfast 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.

2022 / 2023 and beyond: We were delighted to host Cameron Hewitt’s stay with us in June 2022 and discover just how much synchronicity we have with The Rick Steves philosophy. We are so looking forward to welcoming Rick’s future guests and sharing all that Edinburgh has to offer. From the incredible history to the timeless architecture. The more we learn about our past, the longer we live as we experience times before we were born. A different age, where people were not so different to how they are now. The adventure lies in the discovery and we can help you find what you are looking for here at Barony House in Edinburgh!
