With this years foaling currently underway we are now starting to put together the first foal pages for 2013! We have so far had two foals with the next mare due in around one weeks time. We have added a lot of photos to the Faside Stud Facebook Page and we have now updated the Foals Page with our first foals.
We have also now bought four new types of chickens which each provide different coloured eggs including brilliant white, blue, freckled and brown as we wanted to introduce some variety. The lambing for the year is now complete and despite the snow, we are happy to report that it was a successful start the the year.
We have also created a Video Slideshow on our Youtube Channel of The Estate including the self catering and the bed and breakfast accommodation.
February 1, 2013
We just found the very early original Flash website for Faside Stud which we used up to 2007 so if anyone wants a look out of general interest the old website is still online here. Its amazing how much websites change, although we stil quite like the early one!
We have also revamped all the horse pages so that they now include embedded videos and an improved gallery with higher resolution images.
Also, The Tate Gallery are now displaying a previously unkown to us sketch of Faside Castle by the water colourist Turner.

A useful bit of information for anyone coming to Edinburgh for a holiday is you can purchase something called an Edinburgh Pass which gives you access many of the main attractions in Edinburgh for a flat rate. It is also quite economical for getting around The City as it covers certain transport to the destination.
We are also are about to host the prize winners of a Visit Scotland competition last year which was won by a couple in Yorkshire. We expect to be offering the same prize again this year and details will follow soon!

August 28, 2012
The Festival and The Fringe are currently running full pace in Edinburgh and this year we have managed to get to a few shows which with the horses, sheep can be difficult to fit in sometimes. We are still to see the film, Brave, but the launch marked the start of the film festival and this year the festival moved location so The Speigel Tent has moved to George Street so the festival feels far more encompassing of the whole city this year. Also, the Assembly Rooms have now re-operned after a long restoration projection so another good year for Edinburgh festivals!
July 28, 2012
We have decided to make the castle available for exclusive use during The Golf Open in 2013. The property is available for the duration of the event and we have put some details together regarding the Exclusive Use of the property online and we will be adding some further information shortly!
