The Allan Ramsay Hotel is a former coaching inn (est. 1792) located in the quaint weavers' village of Carlops,  nestled at the foot of The Pentland Hills (a Scottish Regional Park) and is only 30 minutes from Edinburgh.

This unique hotel retains much of its 18th Century character with antique decorations, a small library, charming candle-lit restaurant and  real log fires.
