Hawes Inn

A current brochure for the Hawes Inn begins:

A  LITTLE  PUB  WITH  A  BIG  STORY

Nestled on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, and tucked nicely underneath the spectacular sight of the forth Rail Bridge, the Hawes Inn has a colourful history.

Most famously, the pub gave inspiration to the Edinburgh author Robert Louis Stevenson., who, while staying in Room 13 in  1886, master minded the idea for 'Kidnapped'.  The hero of the book actually stayed here too!

Each bedroom within the Inn is named after an aspect of the novel and guests are treated to a copy of the book in each of the guest bedrooms.

Sir Walter Scott also describes the Hawes Inn in his novel 'Antiquary.
