About the Dunstane Houses

The Dunstane Houses have stood at the gateway to old-town Edinburgh since the 1860s. Variously occupied by merchants, musicians, doctors, distillers, bankers and newspapermen over the last 150 years, they have witnessed the evolution of modern-day Edinburgh. Today, these historic buildings form two halves of a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel: a relaxing, contemporary sanctuary that blends the story of the capital with the Orkney roots of its owners – a stylish and welcoming city retreat with an authentic Scottish soul.
