The Royal Commonwealth Pool is next door, providing gym, swim and leisure facilities which can be accessed for a drop-in fee. Located in the leafy Southside of Edinburgh, in the beautiful grounds of the Pollock Estate, The Scholar is a newly refurbished hotel within walking distance of all of the city’s world famous landmarks.

We take a serious approach to quality and comfort. All of the bedrooms in The Scholar are luxurious and feature large beds, Elite mattresses, and quality linen to ensure the best possible night’s sleep.
