Abbots House in near the wharf area in Leith, a suburb about 3km south of Edinburgh. It is an old guesthouse that has seen better days. Our room has an ensuite (as long as you don't want to get 2 people in it). There is a skylight that doesn't have a cover. When I reported this I was told that they knew about the problem and would fix it tomorrow (which they didn't). I am not sure why they didn't fix it before we got here.
The breakfast was OK but not as good as those at the other places we have stayed at in the UK.
Abbots rated as 3 star on Bookings.com. I am surprised that they got such a high rating.

... small country(and you thought the Irish had a drinking problem), there are plenty of whiskeys to suit everyone's taste. We were also able to view the largest private collection of blended and single malt whiskeys and even with all those whiskeys to choose from, it is said that the owners whiskey of choice is Johnny Walker Red and Cola pre-mixed! I can also proudly state that's I am now a member of the Whiskey Appreciation Society as they were so impressed with ...

Thursday morning we decided to climb to the top of Arthur's Seat. The sun was shining by the time we started the hike so we were feeling pretty good. The hike was gorgeous, green everywhere! It was weird to be in the middle of ...
... about 5 miles of it in the mud ... with Rebecca and Garth last year. Back into the warmth of the car and over the horseradish to Scotland. Just had to stop and see the abbey that dominates your view as you drive into Jedburgh. Wow. Beautiful little village which has a wild history being so close to the English border. We had the bonus of visiting Mary Queen of Sotts house and discovering about her difficult life ... Declared Queen of Scotland when still ...
... Hostel, Edinburgh. Ok? Good. So I sat in the common room and did some writing, and texted Jade, from work back home, who I saw now had a UK phone number. When it was almost time to go back out, I went in to wake up the guys. There were about 4 more people in our room now... Damn! When we were ready, we started the half hour walk down to the Royal Mile, which is the main street in the city centre, and saw Bec, Heather and Sierra coming out of a hostel on the way in. ...
... so Colin and I hiked up Arthur's Seat for some amazing views. After that we ate at a fancy restaurant called "The Witchery." The building the restaurant is in used to be a place they burned witches at the stake. They also believe the place is haunted from these events. But we did not witness any ghosts.
Tomorrow we hope our train is available to travel to Cornwall, England. There has been flooding in Northern England but it should be ready. Cross your ...
