Stay at Eastside for cosy fires, winter walks and an eclectic mix of entertainment!

What's on around Edinburgh in February?

Look forward to the 6 Nations rugby, evenings out at the theatre, animation, puppetry, portrait prizes and Valentines Day. The days start to lengthen, the snowdrops start to raise their heads and the cold crisp mornings tempt you out to explore the hills.

Festivals

Once upon a time puppets were for kids and aerial work was for the circus. Not any more. Don't miss visual theatre as you have never seen it before:

Manipulate Festival | TBC | Scottish festival for visual theatre and animation.

“One of Scotland’s most interesting festivals, manipulate has developed a reputation for showcasing innovative work from around the world in visual theatre and animation… manipulate casts its net far wider than traditional puppetry to bring in the best work from overseas in genres ranging from contemporary puppetry and animation to physical and aerial theatre”
The Scotsman

Celebrate

Valentine's Day | 14th February
Eastside is the perfect base for an Edinburgh Valentine's break. Surrounded by beautiful heather covered hills to explore, wood burning stoves to curl up by and the beautiful city of Edinburgh just a short drive.

Dine out somewhere special:
Timberyard offers wonderful food in a unique industrial building hidden down an unassuming street in the city centre.
The Outsider has the most spectacular views over the Grassmarket to the Castle. Perfect for lunch or supper.
Harvey Nichols Forth Floor looks out over the Castle and the Firth of Forth, turn up early to get the corner table in the bistro & the best views in the house.
Tom Kitchin's Michelin starred The Kitchin is well worth a trip to Leith or its 'pub grub' sister restaurant The Scran & Scallie comes highly recommended too.
For views over the entire city book a table in the brand new The Lookout by Gardener Cottage.
Fancy something closer to home? Why not try The characterful Old Bakehouse in West Linton or dine in with some delicious home made meals from COOK.

Locally grown flowers:
If you would like a locally grown bouquet please let us know and we can have this waiting on your arrival.
