My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in early July and enjoyed the gracious hospitality of the Macfie family. This is a true B&B: You are staying in someone's home. But it's a spectacular home, full of history, and supremely comfortable. For three days,...More

I don't really want to tell anyone how nice a stay we had, in case word gets out. Well informed host took great trouble to look after us and helped enormously with unexpected requirement for taxi to Grangemouth.

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
