Attended wedding at the Mansfield Traquair. Venue is truly stunning & very atmospheric. Beautiful former church is an ideal venue. Staff on the whole excellent, although the evening bar staff seemed a bit inexperienced. Highly recommended.

I was at a wedding in this stunning former church building. There are beautiful murals on the walls depicting religious scenes. The acoustics are a bit tricky to cope with due to the echo and would advise the use of amplification to distribute the sound...More

Well worth checking when tours are available. The painted walls are stunning, and the knowledgable guide explained the background to each image so clearly. Truly Scotland's Sistine Chapel!

Visited the Mansfield Traquair Church as it was the venue for the Whisky Fringe, so able to sample some great Malt Whiskies in fabulous surroundings. The Church is no longer used for worship (indeed it houses the SCVO Offices), but the cleared floor space can...More

We did not know really what this venue was, we just knew we had a cocktail dinner here. Well it is an absolutely beautiful church which has been renovated. Dinner was great and the decor was simple and sparkling.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
