There are very few venues that can boost a situation as iconic as Cannonball House on Castlehill, directly next to Edinburgh Castle.

We love Cannonball House with all its history and all the character you would expect from an Edinburgh Old Town building that dates back to the 17thC.  The Glengoyne Room has its own dedicated entrance to make your event even more special.

WHAT IS AN EVENT AT CANNONBALL LIKE?

Cannonball House captures all the mystery and history of the best dining on the Royal Mile.  Your dining in the shadows of the first Duke Gordon, the first key keeper to Edinburgh Castle who first owned Cannonball House.  

We still have the door that he would have used which is home to the oldest tirling pin, an old Scottish word for a knocker – believed to be the oldest in the world.

We serve beautiful contemporary Scottish dishes in a very traditional historic venue.  We look forward to sharing so many of the wonderful stories we’ve learnt while we’ve had the privilege to cook and share our hospitality.
