A restful home

Cosy and caring, Marian House is one of our smaller homes. It’s set within the Grange, a highly desirable part of Edinburgh and is decorated in neutral and calming colours throughout to reflect the tranquillity of the area. Its lovely sheltered walled garden is a place for quiet contemplation or enjoyment with friends and is part covered so you can appreciate it come rain or shine. It’s directly accessed from the main lounge via French doors and the grassed spaces, trees and a sensory area are a favourite with the residents. Marian House is an inviting, friendly home with a flexible programme of activities for all to enjoy. Whether tending to the vegetable patch, a morning in the Craft Café, or out and about in one of our regular bus trips, the choice is yours. Our Activities Coordinator is on hand to help design a plan that is right for you. Restful and intimate, Marian House offers first class nursing care in a beautiful setting.

Helping you enjoy life to the full

Nursing and Dementia Care

Here at Marian House, your wellbeing is our top priority so we provide trained nursing staff supported by care staff 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We’re fully aware that making the decision to come in to a Care Home can be a stressful prospect for both you and your family, which is why we offer a caring, individual service that’s tailored to each and every one of our residents. We’ll get to know you and your life story, your likes and dislikes and your personal wishes will guide our work. We’re here to provide joy in later years and believe it’s important that this time is cherished and lived to the full.

The Craft Café

We’re always looking for creative ways to enhance the lives of our residents. In 2012 we were proud open The Craft Café in an unused Chapel which is attached to Marian House. Now lovingly restored to its former glory, it has become a fantastic place for those wishing to socialise and express their creativity. Run in partnership with Impact Arts, the Café is open 3 days a week and welcomes all residents, friends and family. The Café has been a finalist in the Scottish Dementia Awards and Care Accolades. Read more about the café here.


We actively encourage social interaction and activity. We’re all part of this community and the more vibrant it is, the more fun we all have. Families and friends of residents are welcome to get involved too and we hold regular meetings to give you an opportunity to let us know how we are doing and to raise any concerns. Your contributions and suggestions are always welcome.


We always welcome visits from family and friends and you can drop by at any time during the day or evening, subject to the care and rest needs of individual residents.

We are always happy to arrange visits for prospective residents and their families.

To visit us or to make an appointment for an assessment of a prospective resident’s care needs, please contact us on 0131 662 5125.

Daily life

Virtual tour

An oasis of calm in a bustling city

You take life at Marian House at your own pace. Whether you’re smelling the flowers in the Sensory garden or the freshly bakes scones in The Craft Café, you’ll enjoy a peaceful life in a caring community. Our home sits in a secluded part of Edinburgh, but it’s easily accessible from the centre of town – and the vibrant districts of Morningside and Bruntsfield have plenty of shops, churches and other great places to visit.
Low ceilings add to the cosy feel of Marian House and our housekeeper keeps everything incredibly clean and tidy. In fact she never stops and looks after the home as if it were her own. The walled courtyard garden is beautifully kept too, all of which goes to show that this is a care home that truly cares about everything.
