A new ‘champagne and gin’ terrace has opened at one of Edinburgh’s most exclusive guesthouses as lockdown restrictions relax.
Dunstane House is known for its deluxe rooms, but they have now expanded into a covered, heated terrace to comply with current level three rules.
Named ‘The Garden’, the bar has been set up on the lawn of the West Coates guest house, with a huge hanging tent to ensure guests stay dry while enjoying their cocktails.

Serving both food and drink, the garden opened to the public on May 7 and saw a number of visitors come to the site to take advantage of their beverage menu and outdoor heaters.
Open from noon to 9:30 p.m., Dunstane staff thanked local residents for their support since reopening, adding that it was great “to see so many familiar faces”.
The hotel also confirmed that it is now taking reservations for overnight stays as well as food and drink, with “exciting news on our summer plans” to come.
