Built in 1756 and named as ‘one of the capital’s most intriguing properties’ by the Scotsman and 'top 10 places to stay' by Conde Nast, Rock House is a historic gem in the heart of Edinburgh.

Perfect for a romantic break, the Photographer's Studio is perhaps one of Edinburgh's most unusual retreats. Its octagonal shape and domed roof are complemented by a sweeping staircase and innovatively designed living area, complete with concealed kitchen.

1 min to Princess Street.

The space
This enchanting home which was once used as a pioneering photographer's studio extends over two floors. On the ground floor, there is a double bedroom with a four poster bed and shower room which features a rain shower head. Climbing a winding staircase, the upper floor features a hexagonal living space to make the most of the views. There is a kitchenette (equipped with a gas range, oven, and fridge) a decorative fireplace, and even a washer and dryer to make this home away from home both enjoyable and useful.
