A city where ancient and modern merge seamlessly: medieval alleys connect contemporary buildings and ‘new’ Scottish cuisine meets traditional Scottish hospitality. Our weekend itinerary will let you discover the highlights, uncover a few secrets and learn new skills, while still giving you time to kick back, relax and unwind.

Check-in for a 3-night stay at 94DR… The house’s charm will immediately draw you in. You’ll be greeted with welcome drinks by your host for a brief house orientation and a chance to ask any questions and arrange the finer details for your stay.
Relax and unpack before joining the rest of your group at pre supper cocktails. We’re loving Negroni’s right now.
Supper at your Edinburgh home.
We’ll have arranged a delicious two-course supper to be prepared and ready for you to heat & serve. So you’ll have plenty of time to catch up and relax together.
Supper favourites: Beef Bourguignon, buttery mashed potatoes, seasonal salad & crusty baguettes. It’s followed by tarte aux pommes and crème fraîche!
Proudly Scottish at heart with a keen international outlook, Strathberry creates unique luxury pieces, which are handcrafted in Spain using only the very finest quality Spanish leathers and finishes. Each Strathberry creation is designed to be cherished year after year and takes some of the world’s most talented artisans a minimum of 20 hours to meticulously craft by hand.

A long lie and a lazy breakfast

We’ve arranged a private tour of Holyrood Distillery. Enjoying a guided flavour-forward experience, you will learn how gin and whisky are made, and about both the traditions and innovative new methods in craft distilling employed at Holyrood – Scotland’s newest distillery! This is a hands-on sensory experience, taking in both the gin and whisky distilleries, with opportunities for tasting and nosing throughout.
Later in the afternoon return to 94DR and light the BBQ and pizza oven to enjoy a sociable afternoon into evening cooking. We’ll have delivered great steaks, seafood, and sides – all you’ll need to kick back and enjoy being together in your private garden and terrace at 94DR.
