                          The Capercaillie is set in 633 acres of farmland with stunning views. There is a 3.5 mile circular treasure trail, plus a children's puzzle trail. Lots of walks, ponies on the doorstep as well as alpacas, hens, pet pigs and bantams. Ponies can be walked.

                          Edinburgh Zoo and the Pandas are a must, as well as Edinburgh Castle, Dynamic Earth, Scottish Museums, Sir Walter Scotts House, Royal Yacht Britannia.

                          Abundance of golf courses and some of the best salmon fishing in Scotland.

                          Lots of information on walks locally and further afield.

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: We have been providing 5 star luxury accommodation at Airhouses since the end of 2006. In 2012 we decided to build The Capercaillie as we were having lots of requests for larger properties.

                          Why the Owner Chose Edinburgh:
                          We have toured parts of the USA in 2010 and had stayed in some beautiful properties in Georgia and Sedona. These properties formed the basis of our design for the Capercaillie.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                          Large bedrooms with dressing areas and gorgeous bathrooms. Stunning views from the hot tub and lots of beautiful walks.
