Artist's Description

An Historic Scotland Category B Listed Building

The Hawes Inn, in South Queensferry, Scotland, dates back to the 17th century.

It was an inspiration for Edinburgh author Robert Louis Stevenson when in 1886, while staying in Room 13, he came up with the idea for his novel Kidnapped. The hero of the book (David Balfour) also stays at the inn.

Sir Walter Scott described the Hawes Inn in his novel The Antiquary.

The Inn sits almost directly under the Forth Bridge (you can see a commuter train on the elevated tracks top left of the picture) and was used as a hospital for the 160 plus workers injured while building the bridge.

The garden (at the back) has a large, old yew tree approximately 200 years old. It is one of the largest yews in Edinburgh with a diameter of 173cm.

The Hawes Inn is an Historic Scotland Category B Listed building. Ref 40354.
