Book a stay in a historic house and feel on top of the world

Edinburgh’s Calton Hill is one of the most photograph­ed sights in the Scottish capital. And now you can wake up to those views in a historic building on top of that hill.

Observator­y House is one of the very few extant buildings designed by James Craig, the planner of Edinburgh’s first New Town. This 18th century building is the final part of the hilltop site redevelope­d by the non-profit arts organisati­on Collective, which also includes the Gardener’s Cottage restaurant. The house has been sensitivel­y restored using Harris Tweed accessorie­s, Lusso stone and specially commission­ed art.

The main house is now open to book with a new apartment in the basement available from early 2022. Visitors can also explore the house on occasional open days.
