A little pub history
The Hawes Inn has strong connections with the celebrated author Robert Louis Stevenson, who was born in Edinburgh on the 13th November 1850. It is said that he stayed in the Inn and actually wrote part of the famous novel 'Kidnapped' in one of the rooms. Indeed the Kidnapped actually includes a passage about the Hawes Inn.
Charming local accommodation
Our 14 Bedroom Innkeeper's Lodge continues The Hawes Inn 's tradition of welcoming travellers. It's our local charm that attracts office staff from Edinburgh and visitors, as well as diners and drinkers from South Queensferry and nearby Cramond, Linlithgow and Rosyth. We also welcome business and leisure travellers to enjoy some of the best bedrooms and accommodation in Edinburgh.
Make a day of it
With views over the Firth of Forth, The Hawes Inn has an inspirational location - certainly for Robert Louis Stevenson, who while staying in room 13 in 1886 came up with the idea for 'Kidnapped'.
