Things to do and places to see ......

We are situated virtually next door to the famous Rosslyn Chapel, as mentioned in the best selling novel "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, and which appeared as a location in the 2006 film of the same name. The chapel was built in the 15th century, work starting around 1446, by William Sinclair. The chapel has Masonic and Knights Templar links.

At 'The Steading', you have the opportunity to experience either all that the historic City of Edinburgh has to offer or take advantage of our rural location to go for walks, visit Rosslyn Chapel or simply have a relaxing holiday in an idyllic setting.

There is ample, free, secure parking in our own grounds and a good bus service offering easy access to Edinburgh City Centre.

Edinburgh has much to offer people of all ages, ranging from famous historical sites, museums and art galleries through to designer shops, wine bars, restaurants and major concert venues. There are numerous walks to suit all abilities and, if golf is your thing, there are numerous excellent courses in the area.

We are located close to the Easter Bush Veterinary Centre, the Large Animal Hospital and the Small Animal Hospital, Pentlands Science Park, Edinburgh Technopole and the Edinburgh Innovation Centre. The Roslin Institute is located here within the village of Roslin itself.

Edinburgh Airport and the Royal Highland Showground at Ingliston are only 25 minutes drive away.

The Steading is also well placed to allow easy access to many attractions slightly further afield, like the magnificent Queen's View in Perthshire, the Scottish Borders, East Lothian, Stirling and Central Scotland and the southern Highlands area. 

After a busy day sightseeing you are then able to retreat to the peacefulness of the countryside where there are eating places within easy reach.
