A Room In The Country Bed and Breakfast near Edinburgh

Claire and Grant Masterton would like to welcome you to the beautiful Scottish countryside.

Our family run B&B has the best of both worlds, located at the foot of the Pentland Hills but only twelve miles west of Edinburgh city centre with all its history, arts and leisure facilities. It is a ten minute drive to the nearest park and ride from which a bus will take you into the city centre in twenty minutes. The nearest railway station is only two and a half miles away with a direct line to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Edinburgh airport is nine miles away and the motorway network is easily accessible from our location.

Please Note: Having a car is highly recommended when staying with us as the nearest public transport is a 30 minute walk away.

If you have come to Scotland to golf we are ideally situated, whether you want to play locally at Dalmahoy or take a drive north to St.Andrews, west to Loch Lomond or east to Muirfield.

We are only 10 minutes drive away from Ingliston Showground, location for the Royal Highland Show held there every June.

There are many off-road cycle paths in the area and if mountain biking is your thing there is the world famous Glentress Forest less than an hour's drive away.

Of course, the beautiful Pentland Hills, which are virtually on our doorstep, lend themselves particularly well to walking or cycling.
