Liberton Tower with its breathtaking panoramic views of Edinburgh is situated just 2 miles from the city centre of Edinburgh. This late 15th century castle is accessed from an outer wooden staircase which occupies the position of the original drawbridge.

This leads directly into the Great Hall which is furnished in a lavish style with wall hangings and oak furniture. A roaring log fire and under floor heating create an inviting atmosphere in this spectacular room.

Ascending from the Great Hall is the impressive master bedroom with a four poster bed. The twin bedroom has two single beds and a ladder provides access to the stone-parapet with splendid views of Edinburgh.
