    Basic standard, attentive service

    The room was smaller and more basic than what we had expected - there was no table in the room and the fridge was miniature.

    Furthermore, the room had not been fully cleaned from the previous guest (there were a few stains in the bathroom). Upon leaving the hotel my son crawled in under his bed to pick up an item that had fell under the bed. When he came out he had grey stains in his hair from having been close to the carpet. Apparently, more frequent vacuum cleaning under the beds would eliminate this issue.

    On the plus side was the helpfulness of the attentive staff in advising us on what to do in Edinburgh. Also, the Scottish breakfast included in the booking was tasty and met our expectations.

    In summary - small room, cleaning that could improve a bit, a helpful staff and a tasty breakfast.

    Frukost på Star Villa med stadardmenyn - skotsk frukost (vita bönor, korv, bacon, ägg på toast, svamp, tomat, blodpudding). Doreen undrade hur gårdagens utflykt varit och vi lovordade Loch Lomond och övriga sevärdheter. Vi diskuterade dagens planering med Doreen som föreslog North Berwick. Vi övervägde mellan detta och att hålla oss i stans parker …

    ... it is either uphill or downhill. First impressions are that Edinburgh is very, very old with lots of gray stone buildings and cobbled streets. Everyone is very friendly and smile and stop to talk on the street. We walked to the Royal Mile and started near Edinburgh Castle to walk this most famous mile (actually a bit more than a mile). From the Castle, the Royal Mile is a downhill walk; conversely, it's uphill coming ...

    ... with serene farms and crops of gold. We travel under stone archways and through tunnels with the unique cottages along with rock "hedgerows" among the farmland and wild flowers abounding.
    Many of these green fields are dotted with a great number of little lambs.

    Arriving in Glasgow, I walked around taking these various pictures of beauty. Though I can't name them all, as to what they are, I hope you enjoy the beauty of these very old structures.

    ... what the experience was like. The close is now underground, but at the time when people lived on it, it was open to the sky. Many of the closes are now the foundation of other modern buildings, hence why they are now underground. It was extremely dark and we were taken into many cold, bare rooms of what were peoples homes back in the 1600's. We were told stories of murders that took place in the various rooms we were in as well as the very prevalent plague that ...
