Peebles Golf Club - Peebles - 0.3 miles
Peebles lies just over 20 miles south of Edinburgh, on the banks of the river Tweed, in the midst of the Scottish Border hills. Peebles is a championship course, having played host in the past to the Scottish Girls, Strokeplay Championship, and Scottish Boys Team Championship; and in 2006 is hosting the Scottish Girls Amateur Championship. The course is considered one of the finest in the Borders for the quality of its turf, greens and the stunning views. It is a prime example of a challenging Scottish upland golf course. The clubhouse balcony overlooks the par three first hole and provides the ideal location for relaxation after your round.
Dalmeny House - 15.03 miles
When Dalmeny House was completed in 1817, it marked a great departure in Scottish architecture; its Tudor Gothic style, with its highly-decorated chimneys and crenellations, looked back toward fanciful 16th-century English mansions, such as Hampton Court. The house was designed by a University friend of the 4th Earl of Rosebery, William Wilkins, who would go on to design the National Gallery in London and much of King's College, Cambridge - parts of which closely resemble Dalmeny. With its Gothic Great Hall and corridor, its large, formal regency apartments and its sweeping views across the Firth of Forth, it is a house which combines comfort and romanticism, and which produced many imitations throughout Scotland.
