The Manse is a large self-catering cottage that can sleep up to 10 people in comfort. It is tastefully decorated and well equipped so provides everything you will need for your holiday. The Manse is set in the beautiful grounds of 15th century Carberry Tower and is only 20 minutes from Edinburgh city centre - an idyllic location!

Enjoy walking in the grounds of Carberry, a delight for tree lovers, and explore the history of the local area with its connections to Mary Queen of Scots and Carberry Hill. Travel into Edinburgh for the bustle of shopping on Princes Street, the excitement of the Edinburgh Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, world-class museums and art galleries, fabulous restaurants and cafes, and of course the history and architecture of Edinburgh Castle.
