The Pavilion is a newly-built, self-contained 3-storey house, sitting within the curtilage of Lamb's House in Leith. It has been built in the style of the early 18th century with particular attention to detail, including an eye-catching "ogee" roof. Inside, furniture and fittings are of a quality and style to match. A fine south-facing Italianate garden can be enjoyed by the guests.

Lamb's House, built in 1610, is one of Edinburgh's most interesting buildings. A-listed, this 5-storey building is only a stones throw from the historic Port in the heart of Leith. Built as a tenement, it consisted of 6 booths on the ground floor with 6 small but very grand fats on the upper floors. These were rented to the Edinburgh merchants who controlled all trade in the port at the time..

Leith, on the shore of the Firth of Forth in North Edinburgh, has served as the city's port since the 12th Century. It was the centre of manufacturing and commercial activity with mills, sugar refineries, engineering works, breweries and distilleries, ship building, lead and glass works and many more. All of these were dependant on the river and the harbour. Today it is a vibrant part of the city where some of the best restaurants have replaced the traditional industries. The much acclaimed Michelin starred restaurant, Martin Wishart is 70 metres from the Pavilion's front door.

Things to do

  • The Georgian House (NTS), on Edinburgh's Charlotte Square, is a restored Robert Adam-designed town house that was home to John Lamont, 18th Chief of the Clan Lamont, and his family until 1815. It gives a fascinating insight into life both upstairs and downstairs.

  • The Royal Yacht Britannia was a home to Queen for over 40 years, sailing over a million miles around the world. It is now berthed at Ocean Terminal in Leith, just a short walk from Lamb's House.

  • The Water of Leith flows from the Pentland Hills (south of Edinburgh) through the city and out into the Forth at Leith. A walkway runs beside it from Balerno to Leith (12 miles).
