What a wonderful experience : to share the very same premises with R L Stevenson's spirit. The whole house has retained most of the original atmosphere; even the bath tub is dated back to the Victorian times. Possibly the best location to dive into the...More

Many thanks indeed for your kind words. You will be welcome back any time. August busy-busy with Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, but May and September have fewer other visitors in the city, and the weather is often lovely ... Haste ye...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.
