Merchiston is a beautiful neo-classical building situated within around 100 acres of stunning parkland, and yet it is also easily accessible by all major transport links being only 5 miles to the city centre and 15 minutes drive to Edinburgh International airport.

We have a variety of accommodation which is available to hire and lends itself to a multitude of different uses, from residential courses, rehearsal spaces, holiday camps and weddings. The combination of a ruined castle, beautiful grounds, elegant rooms and a swimming pool also makes Merchiston the ideal location for film and video shoots.

Whatever the occasion our events team are on hand and can assist with your planning, catering, decoration and facilities. Please call us to discuss on +44 (0)131 312 2258 or email
