Alastair Sawdays Edinburgh

Here is an extract of the The Sawday’s philosophy straight from their website:

“ Life’s too short for ordinary. That’s why we’ve spent over 25 years finding, visiting and choosing brilliant places to stay. For people who love special.

Our mission is to: Bring together people and places of spirit and character for meaningful experiences. Have a positive social, cultural and environmental impact.

With such a brilliant and focussed philosophy behind them, we feel a synergy which we hope our guests will experience when staying with us.

In addition, we were also impressed to see Alastair Sawdays offer ‘Special Places to Stay’ all over Europe!

As we are Aussies, we have grown up with very little history. Over the years, we have loved hosting guests from all over The U.K and Europe, including on occasion, Alastair Sawdays guidebook readers.

It has also been wonderful to study and learn all about Edinburgh’s past and be able to share so many secrets and surprises with our guests. Not only have we studied and documented the fascinating history of Barony House but we have discovered many “must see” attractions around us which will inspire and give real insight into our evolution in modern society.

We are also confident our hand-made Arts and Crafts designs throughout Barony House and our delicious Breakfasts will offer so much more to our guests during their stay. We just can’t wait to host new guests from all around the world!

You can count on us to always try harder, improve and innovate where we can. We aim to keep raising the bar higher into the future.

Thank you again to all our Guests, past, present and future for their ongoing support today and beyond!

Have a sneak peak into our local castle. We are located exactly halfway between the 2 castles in Edinburgh. Most people much prefer Craigmillar Castle, less crowded and a more authentic, less commercialised glimpse into Edinburgh’s past:
