A little local pub history
Melville Castle sits to the south of the Inn. This three-storey gothic styled castellated house has recently been restored. It replaced an earlier tower house built by Henry Dundas, the first Viscount Melville. A mile to the east of the Melville Inn are ancient fortification mounds known as Sheriff's Hall where there has long stood an old house in which George Buchanan is said to have written the "History of Scotland".
Make a day of it
Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World is next door to The Melville Inn and this is also great golfing country. There are lots of good walks along old railway lines, forest tracks and riverside paths.
