    Full of old world charm with a very nice breakfast, then walk round the corner and catch the new tram to 50yds from Murrayfield's East entrance. Easy peasy! Great weekend. It was all helped by having a really good room with good views.

    Princes Street and Gardens
    Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
    is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
    But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
    are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
    look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
    beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
    Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
    town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
