Spylaw Bank House is an elegant Georgian country house built in 1790 situated in the leafy surroundings of the village of Colinton which is nestled at the foot of the Pentland Hills and only four miles from Edinburgh city centre. This is a listed house set in beautiful mature gardens with ample off road parking.
Within minutes of the house is the Water of Leith pathway where you can walk, run or cycle tracing the river to the art galleries of the West End and the city centre. We have easy access to the Pentland Hills where walking is recommended to enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Edinburgh and its coastline.
Stylish and exclusive accommodation is offered where you can relax in the original drawing room with its open fire and antique furnishings. Breakfast is served in the period dining room where we offer a menu of traditional Scottish breakfast or lighter alternatives. Special diets can be catered for.
