... one of Edinburgh and the other the People's Museum. From there we went to the City Museum and it was all about how Edinburgh was formed.
We had lunch there of soup and bread. We went back to the pickup hotel and because we still had time to spare we went to see Carlton Hill and the monuments that were on the top. Quite interesting.
Then it was time ...
... to plant some trees to offset our carbon emissions.
87 different bird species seen.
77 Days away (12 days in Brazil, 38 days in Argentina , 27 days in Chile and amazingly we only had 3 wet days!)
31 different hotels in 20 different locations,
12 flights (including 1 missed and 1 cancelled due to a strike by Air traffic control)
... a bar called the Three Sisters pub (Chris, you took a photo of it where you were here remember?), which was the unofficial home of the Free Fringe. Which is what it sounds like: free shows at the Fringe. Mostly up and coming comedians plus other people who figured out that the tips at the end of the good free show can leave you better off than you would be with a full paid show after all the fees for renting rooms and stuff. All the free Fringe shows are in pubs, obviously ...
... make the most of our visit, we boarded our (nicely light and almost unladen) bikes and ventured forth. We zoomed our way along the rather straight back road to Bridgend with a brilliant tail wind. It looked lovely, but we continued onwards to Ballygrant before weakening and stopping for an outdoor coffee and scone at "Layers", with a nice chat with some other cyclists in the warm sunshine. Inspired by them and the knowledge that the next Jura ferry was in 25 minutes, ...

Early Start to meet at the Haggis Adventures office and on the bus most of the day to make our way to the Loch Ness. Along the way there are many beautiful scenery stops. It is hard when you compare ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 14 Hart Street Edinburgh
We stayed at 14 Hart Street for 2 nights and were pleased from start to finish. The B&B is a couple moments walk away from the Royal Mile and was convenient as a basis to explore the City, yet was quiet and removed on the little side-street and provided a wonderful night's rest.
Loved the Location
Edinburgh was the last destination on our UK trip. 14 Hart was the best bed and breakfast we stayed in all week, not to mention best we have ever stayed in. We felt like we got to have a full Scottish experience as the B and B was essentially the owner's home. Beautifully decorated, lovely antiques, great English Breakfast each morning and delightful rooms. We were a little concerned about others' comments regarding the basement rooms, but they were plenty bright and very comfortable. We were well taken care of and enjoyed talking with the owners. The location was just a 5-10 min walk to Princes Street and another 5-10 min to Royal Mile. Great restaurants are nearby as well.
From the moment we arrived we were treated to a hearty welcome. There was always somebody on hand to see to our every need but equally our privacy and comfort was respected. Although we only stayed for a weekend we would have felt equally as comfortable on a fortnights vacation. The house is located close to Edinburgh's main attractions but far enough away from the hustle to be a peaceful retreat after a hard days walking! It would be wrong of me to go this far and not mention the breakfast which was absolutely delicious! The luxurious ambience and the quality and comfort of the room and en-suite was second to none - you would be sad to miss at least a night here!
Great B&B in Edinburgh
Lovely home on a quiet street, within easy walking distance of historical sites. Wonderful, comfortable bed, nice view of the garden from our room. Good breakfasts, very accomodating hosts with good dinner recommendation. We enjoyed our 3 day stay! Guy and Bonnie, Ohio
To enter a B&B is getting into a private home, i.e. getting close to other people in a different way from staying at a hotel. We have always preferred B&B's to hotels, we've done so for a quarter of a century, we have had many lovely experiences, and have very rarely been treated less than kind. However, two brief visits to Angela and James Wilson's house at 14, Hart St. (a few minutes' walk from Edinburgh's Waverley Station) deserve a mention. There are no outdoor signs, indicating a B&B (however, they've got a website), and Angela and James are the kind of hosts we've always liked: talkative, relaxed, helpful. In short: people that you feel you've known for quite a long time, even though you just popped in the night before. Leaving for the west coast to be back two weeks later, we were told to keep the key, "just in case we're not here the moment you're back". Saturday morning had heavy rain, so "don't worry, I'll drive you over to the bus station" - wonderful. And the welcoming tray that any visitor to the UK is familiar with also included an item, which we have never encountered previously (on a welcoming tray, that is)......
At Home on Hart Street
Quick and to the point:
14 Hart street was charming.
Owners were very friendly and they have a nice lady helping them on some mornings.
Parking on the street can be difficult to find.
Beds were GREAT and rooms with lots of extras.
Walking distance to many attractions.
Credit cards not accepted, cash preferred.
Great Value for the $
I would definately stay here again.....
14 Hart Street B&B is nestled on a small side street only a block and half from busy, boisterous Edinburgh, Scotland. The neighborhood is part of the newtown development that occured in the 1700's and the townhouse reflects this architecture. It is unassuming and even unmarked other than the number 14 on the entry door. The street is quiet and uncongested even though it affords excellent accessibility by foot to the city center and its attractions.
Great location and friendly
We travelled from Australia and stayed for 4 nights. James and Angela could not have been more helpful. We were offered unlimited use of their laundry, dryer and iron. While we were out their housekeeper even ironed a few of my shirts. A lovely surprise! The location was excellent as it is a few minutes walk to everything including our car rental. Plenty of pubs and restaurants just around the corner. No hesitation about staying again...
Fine B&B in Edinburgh
Jim and Angela Wilson operate a beauitful B&B in the New Town area a few blocks from Princes Street and the bus/train stations. The breakfast room is a handsome, Georgian-style, space and the rooms are impeccable. We arrived soaked from a cold rainstorm and were most grateful to find the Wilson's restorative tea and sherry in the room. Highly recommended.
This bed and breakfast in the center of Edinburgh is nice but does have some issues. On the plus side James and Angela are very welcoming hosts and quite pleasant. The breakfast is the best I've ever had and the location is very close to some nice places to dine. On the down side, there are no real televisions to watch in the rooms (12 inch TVs with only 4 British stations), the rooms are dark and are the basement type/downstairs (the kind where you look up and out to people passing on the sidewalk), the wooden floors in the downstairs hall creak like mad and when the cleaning lady starts at eight in the morning your sleep is over, and, it is much too expensive. My mother forgot a small mirror she received as a gift from a relative there, so I emailed James asking if he could send it back to her in California (this after we mailed the keys we forgot to leave). He just sent some snide remark that he couldn't since it would break to many pieces. You'd think after spending $2,400 for two rooms they'd pay the $30 to ship it in a nice protective box since it was a gift for my mother's 75th birthday from a close relative. Mom is still without her mirror. If you stay here, don't leave anything behind, don't plan on watching TV before going to bed and be an early riser. This place has potential ... hopefully they will remedy some of these issues.
