A warm welcome is extended in this attractive and comfortable family home - a listed building and former 18th century Coaching Inn. Located by the picturesque village of Fala in rural Midlothian on the A68 main route south to Newcastle it offers an ideal base for exploring Edinburgh and the beautiful Scottish Borders. Own transport advisable as public transport is limited. We have six spacious bedrooms of which 2 are en-suite guest TV lounge with real fire and separate dining room. There is ample free private parking and children are welcome. Open all year. Accommodation is on a bed and breakfast only basis but there are several restaurants within a few minutes drive away. Edinburgh City Centre is 15 miles and there is a convenient Park and Ride situated at Sheriffhall on the A7 North on the outskirts of the city where car parking is free and the bus service into the city is frequent. There are of course many car parks within the city for those who wish to take their car although parking can be costly for long periods of time. Edinburgh has many attractions including the Castle The Royal Yacht Britannia Museums Art Galleries as well as theatres and sports venues. The list is endless. Fairshiels is ideally situated to explore East Lothian and the East Coast fishing villages and market towns. The Scottish Borders are also very accessible for day outings to visit the many Country Houses and unique towns and villages. A little closer to home Midlothian has beautiful countryside to experience including the popular tourist attractions of Rosslyn Chapel where the Da Vinci Code was filmed The Scottish Mining Museum and Castles and Country Parks to explore and enjoy. All these areas have many interesting things to do that are too numerous to list and finding them for yourself can be a big part of the fun. Fairshiels has been a family run business for over 40 years and our aim is to make your stay enjoyable comfortable and relaxing.
