Six bedroom suites include a variery of regal touches, including four-poster beds, French double basins, a walk-in shower and an antique copper bath big enough to swim in.The Garret Suite, found right at the top of the Tower on the fourth floor, has its very own sitting area and outside access to the battlements for views across rolling hills to Edinburgh.

There are also 20 acres of lush land to explore before enjoying all that East Lothian has to offer.The Tower sleeps up to 13 people in seven bedrooms and is available to rent from £1,700 a night at www.hostunusal.com.
