Known in medieval Celtic culture as a story teller, verse maker and composer, the word ‘Bard’ has become synonymous with the world’s greatest poets. However, few are as celebrated as Scotland’s own ‘National Bard’, Robert Burns, who we pay tribute to on 25 January each year.
Burns Night is a time to enjoy Scottish traditions and celebrate the renowned poet Robert Burns with a classic combination of haggis, neeps, tatties, some reciting of poetry, and maybe even a warming dram.
It’s also an opportunity to celebrate Scotland’s enduring legacy of creativity.
Love this place such easy access to Edinburgh and a lovely garden centre right on your doorstep.
We visit from Sydney Australia and whenever we go to U.K. We make a point of going to Edinburgh and Edinburgh equals Morton Hall. Love it. Especially the pub and restaurant. Thanks for a great stay and great memories.
We found it very welcoming and chose to stay here again over Hogmanay due to the ease of getting to and from the city centre, and the reasonable price for 2 nights stay. Everyone we encountered was helpful, and we were able to check in before the official check in time due to the property being ready early which was very useful. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend to others.
Staff so friendly and efficient, always love our stay at Mortonhall, so convenient for travel to city.
Excellent location for Edinburgh fringe festival.
Beautiful setting, so clean with a variety of wildlife. Loved the two bulls In the front fields. Really great place. We live in Australia so very nice to see rain and green fields.
In a lovely location, great park, very well kept, very good bus service to city centre, we would come back again, our stay was very enjoyable though too short.
Excellent staff very friendly and helpful, lovely clean facilities, great enjoyable place to visit, couldn’t fault Mortonhall.
A lovely stay at the site, very helpful friendly staff and good bus services in to Edinburgh… thank-you for having us.
Best place to stay when visiting Edinburgh. Especially when arriving from south. Great transport links. Nice walks. Very safe site. No traffic noise from nearby roads. Good recycling facilities. Meet people from all over the world
Beautiful surroundings, plenty of room, good bus links from outside park and easy to find on arrival. Excellent experience and the best overall site we found in a month of touring Scotland.
Overall experience and stay at the park was brilliant! Will definitely be returning!
