Ravensdown is a friendly and stylish guest house, run by David (Scottish) and Yoka (Dutch) providing quality bed and breakfast accommodation in central Edinburgh. A spacious Edwardian house built in the early 1900’s, More Ravensdown has spectacular views of the city skyline, Edinburgh castle and Arthur’s Seat.Situated on Ferry Road to the north of the ancient city, within easy access to the port of Leith, with lovely pubs and restaurants, and the Royal Yacht Britannia. Approximately 5 minutes walk to the Royal Botanic Garden, Canonmills, Broughton and Stockbridge, a lively up market 'village', with wonderful pubs, restaurants, bars and boutiques.We can advise you what to do and see in and around the city.
