    Busy weekend in Edinburgh, struggled to find a hotel. Moreover found the Elder York Guest House. Probably not a business option, but I really enjoyed it. Great location, excellent breakfasts and personable hosts.

    with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
    of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
