Witchery by the Castle (The)

In brief: A theatrical, Gothic masterpiece.

Our highlight: Pretending to be an Elizabethan laird while strolling through the opulent interiors.

Insider guide: It’s no surprise this place has won countless awards and celebrity fans: it’s the ultimate romantic escapist palace. In 1979, hotelier James Thomson set out to defy the bland minimalism dominating boutique hotel design by opening his own restaurant with rooms. The result was this 16th century getaway decked in sumptuous interiors of mahogany and deep red velvet. The restaurant, a magnificent oak-panelled banqueting hall, offers some of the best local produce on the Royal Mile – try the famed Angus beef steak tartare.
