The space
Bookings are for weekend or midweek stays with arrivals on Mondays and Fridays.

Monday arrival's for 4 nights leaving on Friday.
Friday arrival's for 3 nights leaving on Monday.

We are trying to encourage a slower form of tourism which allows visitors to our city time to fully discover Edinburgh. We have adjusted our weekly arrival and departure days to encourage this. If you would like to stay for longer or shorter please get in touch and we can try and help!

The studio really is in the shadow of the castle and perfectly situated to explore every mysterious and beautiful corner of the city.

We leave all of our guests a hearty breakfast so you don't have to worry about going shopping before your arrival. We source some freshly baked bread, organic eggs, freshly squeezed juice, butter, jam, and honey. We also have cereals, oils, salt and pepper, garlic and a few spices. It should be everything you need to make a special breakfast! Let us know if you would like anything in particular and we will do our best to make it happen.

We worked with some incredible local craftsman and all of the furniture within the studio has been specially made for the space. The walls are also finished in a natural clay plaster, they draw you into the space and really make the interior a comfortable place to spend a long time relaxing or reading. We often find that guests cancel their plans and decide to spend the evening in!

Porteous Studio was the first project of our Architecture Practice, Izat Arundell. We were really lucky to find the small space and immediately fell in love the building and its potential.
