Situated in the heart of the exciting city of Edinburgh is The Howard, one of the most welcoming and elegant five-star hotels in the Scottish capital. The hotel typifies the Georgian period with luscious interiors, fine oil paintings and antiques.

Just a short drive away from Edinburgh in the heart of Fife is Balbirnie House.
