Welcome to The Allan Ramsay

Named in honour of  the celebrated Scots poet - Allan Ramsay (1684-1758).


This Historic Place

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.  


Our Rooms

The hotel has four comfortable ensuite guests rooms on the upper floor; which offer single, double, twin and family occupancy options.
There is also a lovely self-contained apartment on the ground floor with its own separate entrance. The apartment sleeps six and has one double bedroom with an ensuite shower room, a second double bedroom and a twin room plus a comfortable lounge, kitchen and a bathroom with shower.  The rooms within the apartment can also be booked separately. 
Food and Drink
Guests staying with us can enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast served daily from 8am.
Food is served daily from 12.30pm.  Our menu is characteristically Scottish and is freshly prepared using the best 'Scottish Borders' region locally sourced meat, fish and game wherever possible. View our  Menu. The menu varies across the seasons and guests are also recommended to check the chalk board for weekly Chef's Specials.  To Book A Table.
To compliment your food there is a good selection of red, white, rose and sparkling wines on offer; chosen for us by the wine experts at Cockburns of Leith - Scotland's distinguished wine importers.   View our Wine List
 The hotel has one of the last remaining 'penny bars' in the UK; that is a bar top decorated with one penny coins, some coins date back to Queen Victoria. Stocked with popular lagers, ciders and locally produced real ales there also is a fine selection of Scottish malt whiskies and gins
