The Woodside Hotel is an excellent base for discovering what Scotland has to offer, whether you’re after a golfing, walking or driving break, or prefer to immerse yourself in the rich history of Edinburgh. We have super fast wifi in all our rooms. We have a fully licensed bar and guests can dine and relax in our historic Clipper restaurant, restored from RMS Orontes.

Aberdour has two award winning beaches and a vibrant high street. Aberdour’s St Fillan’s church dates back to the 12th century and Aberdour Castle was featured in the popular Outlander series. We are ideally situated for day trips to BT Murrayfield stadium, the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Festival, the Military Tattoo, the National Museum of Scotland, Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile – all approximately half an hour by train – the journey itself is worth doing for the views.

Our Clipper restaurant is a spectacular place to dine.
It features the stained glass ceiling of the steam liner RMS Orontes.
It has been modernised, ironically, with a retro turntable, but also with Sonos streamed music, wi-fi and a contemporary fireplace.
It is perfect for private dining for those special occasions.
We can accommodate parties of up to 25 people.
Our menu can be customised according to your wishes.
You can set the playlist too.
You can even bring along your own vinyl music, we have the technology!

Look out for our meal deals too.
