Named after Alexander Scott, the original owner of the baronial house built in 1780, The Scott is a luxury hotel which still boasts many of its original features, including the spectacular Red Room Bar (coming this autumn), grand dining room, fire places, ornately carved wood paneling and stained glass windows.

With no two rooms the same, the 36 junior suites and deluxe bedrooms blend modern luxury with the grandeur and grace of the original building.  All bedrooms feature Elite™ Lily mattresses and the highest quality duvets, pillows and bed linen to ensure the best possible night’s sleep. The luxury experience is completed with beautifully designed en-suite bathrooms including fluffy towels and Isgha spa products. 

You will join us for breakfast in our elegant dining room where the floor to ceiling windows look out to the hotel’s private garden.  Situated in our sister property next door, the Scholar Restaurant offers an informal à la carte service in the evening until 21.00. The menu is packed with the finest produce that Scotland has to offer.

This autumn, you'll be able to relax in the evening in our cosy Red Room Bar which will serve the finest collection of single malts and other selected local spirits, an exceptional wine list, and a delicious bar menu which will showcase the best local Scottish ingredients.

Located in the leafy Southside of Edinburgh, the hotel offers a peaceful and tranquil setting surrounded by mature gardens.  It’s just a stone’s throw from the sights, sounds and stories of captivating Edinburgh which makes The Scott the perfect place to relax after exploring Scotland’s wonderful Capital City.
