My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this wonderful B&B on the 2nd (or 3rd in the USA) floor. When planning our trip, my wife said I had to see the Stevenson House. I looked it up online and asked "do you want to...More
Three friends, in their 60s, needed a place to stay in Edinburgh on the last night of a two week hiking trip through Northern England. Instead of booking an ordinary airport hotel we chose to spend what little time remained of our sojourn in this...More

I have not yet had the pleasure of staying in this very special B & B, but I hope it will not be long before I do. However, I have taken a group for dinner there. It was a literary tour group with a particular...More
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.
