Calton Hill

Calton Hill (also referred to as "the Calton Hill"), is a hill in central Edinburgh, Scotland, situated beyond the east end of Princes Street and included in the city's UNESCO World Heritage Site. Views of, and from, the hill are often used in photographs and paintings of the city.

The Caves

(Venue for the Thursday evening dinner)

The Caves is an architecturally unique venue in Edinburgh's city centre.  The space forms part of an underground 18th century sub structure underneath The South Bridge known as The Vaults.

The entire location has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is made up of a restored series of interlocking brick walled vaults: The Caves

The Caves is set over two floors. On the upper floor is Gentleman's Lounge, perfect for a drinks reception. Guests can explore the rooms such as The Cow Room and look down into onto the Main Vault and Foundation Room.

36 Hours in Edinburgh

Where old and modern merge seamlessly: along with medieval alleys, design-forward buildings and a ‘new’ Scottish cuisine.

Edinburgh, a charismatic city full of staircases and hills festooned with Georgian and neo-Classical buildings, is well-versed in incorporating the modern into the old. While it has always been an arts center and a cosmopolitan capital, the city is now turning its vibrant energy toward creating a new Scottish cuisine, a nearly uncountable number of craft beers, and design-forward buildings like the Scottish Parliament, which stands as the symbol of the new Scotland. Yet the charm of “Auld Reekie” is still there in its cozy pubs, medieval alleyways and talkative, wryly self-deprecating residents.
