Gordon Ramsay no less is a fan of this fine dining restaurant in Edinburgh's trendy docklands area. The recently refurbished dining room is a quiet riot in shades of brown and cream making it one of Scotland's chicest addresses. The eponymous Mr Wishart's cooking is as accomplished and ambitious as you might expect from someone who has trained with some of Europe's best chefs. Precise modern French dishes lean towards classic combinations such as braised shin and short rib of beef with veal s...
Discover the History of The Georgian House The Georgian House is part of Robert Adam´s masterpiece of urban design, in Charlotte Square. It dates from 1796, when those who could afford it began to escape the cramped, squalid conditions of Edinburgh´s Old Town to settle in the fashionable New Town. The first owner was John Lamont, 18th Chief of Clan Lamont, who lived here until 1815. The beautiful collections of china, shining silver, exquisite paintings and furniture all reflect the d...
Opened by one of Edinburgh's top chefs Martin Wishart and named after Sir Walter Scott's discovery of the Scottish crown jewels (AKA the Honours of Scotland), this is the more casual sister brasserie to Wishart's eponymous flagship fine dining restaurant in nearby Leith. Even so, the smart interior of oversized mirrors, black and white tiling, shades of brown and beige wood veneers and dark brown leather chairs is well worth dressing up for, as is the luxurious French food. Meat lovers might...

Hotel du Vin is well known for its sympathetic creating of hotels in old, characterful buildings and the HdV in Edinburgh is no exception. A former asylum in the middle of Edinburgh's old town, this hotel is all atmospheric exposed brick walls, candlelight and Victorian steel girders and the effect is unique and appealing. Rooms (the quietest ones overlook the courtyard) are slick, chic and bang up to date but still cosy (with discreet touches of tartan to remind you where you are), w...

Arguably the toughest links course in Britain. The Open Championship has been held here on 7 occasions, most recently in 2007. The present golf course was fashioned in 1850 by Alan Robertson of St Andrews. Gorse, broom, open ditches, pot bunkers on almost every fairway and tricky, speedy greens ruin cards and handicaps. The Barry Burn is an additional hazard over the final three holes. In the wind it is a monster off the back tees. The complementary Burnside and Buddon courses that weave arou...

The Old Course at Edzell is set in 120 acres of ideal terrain. In 2001, an additional nine holes were laid out and the new course is called the West Water. Edzell is an inland course of real beauty and one of the best holes is 'Majuba', a short par three which needs a well played short iron to reach the green, which has a deceptive slope. It's three-putt territory above the hole. There's a flavour of Gleneagles, but the fairways are more tree-lined and there are a few blind shots. For valu...

The 13th and 14th are superb and the last few holes are a test. No wonder Old Tom Morris. who designed it, described it as his favourite course. A second course, Craighead, has panor...
