One of Edinburgh’s most popular restaurants, The Lookout by The Gardener’s Cottage, has launched an exclusive dining experience in The Library throughout the month of August.

The Library is a redeveloped space in the City Observatory site on Calton Hill, which houses some of Edinburgh’s oldest and original star gazing telescopes.

Diners to the pop up dining room in The Library are promised a journey from land to sea as the chef and waiting team will showcase some of the best local and seasonal produce in the set tasting menu.

The group table seats 2 - 12 allowing guests to share stories with tourists and locals alike, while the three large windows provide breathtaking views and photographic opportunities across the Firth of Forth and city skyline.

On arrival guests are welcomed with a glass of Champagne and Isle of Gigha Oyster, before being offered a unique insight into the history of the iconic building.

The menu then continues with Isle of Skye Langoustines and Calton Hill gorse smoked Organic Mutton.

Chef Director, Dale Mailley said: “Having the opportunity to host such social dining experiences is something we thrive on.

"Showcasing our menu in an informal, yet intimate environment that brings people together inspires what we do.

The unique dining experience will run from Tuesday 6 until Saturday 31 August and is £50 per person, with a complimentary glass of champagne. Bookings are being taken now.
