Other Reasons To Travel Solo


Work/Study/Writing A Novel

We have Wi-Fi, a peaceful location, and excellent local transport links directly outside the entrance to Pilrig House, and the park – which take you in all directions of Edinburgh. More than a few authors have stayed while writing their next book….

Attending A Course?  

Nearby is Leith School of Art & Martin Wisharts Cook School, and within 20 mins’ on foot are

The Printmakers Studio and The New Town Cookery School – just a few examples. We have hosted many solo women attending a course while in Edinburgh – a lovely way to enjoy a break from the usual ‘routine’ and make some new friends in a new city while you do so.

Touring/Holiday

Pilrig House is the perfect base from which to come and go… whether you want to take advantage of your allocated parking space, join in small group tours or go the whole hog and go for a more exclusive way to see Scotland - we can provide you with details of our excellent Scotland driver/guide, who can also provide you with a Meet & Greet at the airport – holding up a board with your name as you come through Arrivals. We also use the services of an exclusive 5-star touring ‘couple’ who can tailor a tour for you in advance of your stay – down to every last detail and tick on your list…. Travelling solo can be a wonderful way of re-booting your inner self – breaking free from a sense of routine and boredom with the humdrum nature of daily life!
