... tail. This one was carrying a very long stick in its beak and was jumping from ledge to ledge to the top of the roof of a house where the chimneys were. I thought they must be building a nest up there. But no. Once it got to the top - near the chimney pipes, it flew down, across the street to the park where there was a very large tree. Ah! The stick must have been quite cumbersome so it needed some elevation to get to the tree, and the chimney was higher than the tree.
Once it ...
... for our sunglasses - it was sunny in Scotland!!
It was only an hour's drive to Melrose but we stopped en-route at the Carfraemill Hotel for some lunch. They even had a special Scottish produce menu, Maria was going to get her first taste of Scotland. Maybe the tales of deep frying pizza and ice cream had her a little worried but she did venture enough to take the Stornoway Black Pudding hoping it would not be served battered and straight from the deep fat ...
... 8217;s a no win problem.
However unlike old the old 1980s bikes these modern machines and modern tyres tend to dig themselves into the water rather than rise up onto the water and so are much safer. Never once did my Transalp rise up and aquaplane or even slip in this water but still I was taking no chances.
Next year’s adventure will hopefully be up to Noord Kaap at the far north of Norway and yet again I hope to be taking my reliable Honda Transalp. Watch this ...
... Becky got really excited, so I convinced her to go on a squirrel hunt so it would be quiet. The bus turned up about 10 minutes later. We bought our tickets, then climbed up to the open top of the double decker bus. As we drove around the city, we saw big Victorian buildings, castles, and a statue of the guy who invented the mini-kilt. An hour later, we got off the bus, and tried to decide where to go next. We ended up going to ...
... would float anyway. the draw for the town is the white buildings by the water front, the Gaol and the castle. I'm heading over to the castle tomorrow for a look and then heading off to the ferry to the Isle of Mull. Tonight I just went for a wander around town and took some photos of the buildings and the loch. By the way the hire car that I have is an Audi A3, a nice little car and its laid out like the range rover so I felt very comfortable from the get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Beverley Edinburgh
Wonderful place to stay in Edinburgh
My wife, 14 year old daughter and I stayed 2 nights at the Beverley early August 2006. We relied on TripAdvisor ratings and found the high ratings to be 100% true. It is located on a quiet, beautiful street with very easy access to bus transportation downtown. Breakfast was wonderful and the room was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The hosts were friendly and helpful, including advice on seeing the sights of Edinburgh.
Next time, we will spend more time in Edinbugh and will definitely return to the Beverley for our stay.
The Beverely was great!
There were three of us staying here for our July trip. The triple room (one single and one double bed) was spacious and had a great attached bathroom. The towels were big and fluffy, a real plus. Judy was the always gracious host that shared a wealth of information with us. We had a car to use, but ended up leaving it parked the entire stay, using the easily accessed bus instead. Overall great place to stay, I would definitely stay here again.
My sister and I stayed at The Beverley while visiting my neice who was on exchange at the Kilgraston School near Perth. Hutch and Judy are the most gracious hosts and their home is lovely. Neither of us had stayed at a B & B before but The Beverley came highly recommened from friends who had stayed there a few years ago. We were not disappointed! The rooms were great, very roomy and Hutch and Judy were so accommodating to our needs, 2 Americans who had not ventured through Scotland before! The breakfasts were outstanding and certainly enough to keep us energized for the entire day! The cost of the rooms was extremely reasonable and well worth it.
Loved the Beverley
Stayed two nights at The Beverley Guest House and found the accomodations were excellent; clean, well kept, well decorated and Judy and Hutch were both extremely friendly and helpful.
They are very close to all the sites of Edinburgh - The Royal Mile, Princes Street, the Zoo!! A quick walk to local transportation, if that is what you choose and a five minute drive if you have your own transportation.
The old Victorian home is beautiful and the neighbourhood is quiet and obviously well kept -beautiful gardens all down the street and respectfully friendly neighbours.
Would highly recommend a stay at The Beverley. Their website is excellent as well to give a good overview of both the facilities and the owners.- http://www.thebeverley.com/
An Excellant B&B
The Beverly is about an 8 minute bus ride from the heart of Edinburgh in a nice, safe (i'm a single female) residentaly part of Edinburgh. it is about a 2 minute walk from the bustops (5 minutes from the Airlink busstop); be warned it's a nice sloping hill that can be a little tiring if your a little too "thick" and out of shape but SO WELL WORTH IT!! the price was 45 pounds per night for a lovely room with a double bed, hot shower with excellant pressure. i would highly recommend this B&B, the staff and owners were extremely pleasant and socaible; the breakfasts yummy! I will stay here again.
I stayed at The Beverley for five nights in April 2006. I found it to be a truly excellent b&b which exceeded expectations given it's price (35 pounds per night for a single room).
Enjoyed The Beverly
The Beverly's map did not give a true indication of how far it was from Haymarket by foot, but it is just off the bus route. The rooms are adequate but the climb up three flights was not always easy. They did provide free internet access for e-mail & that is a real plus when traveling. They also provided information when asked and a good breakfast cooked to order.
We stayed at The Beverly when we went to the tattoo, found it to be very nice, very organised, clean and everyone was very helpful. The breakfast was good plenty to eat and cooked perfectly.
If we went to Edinburgh again would definately book The Beverly again, was only a mile from the centre and was well placed for the airport, and buses and city centre. We walked most of time found it very convenient.
The millitary tottoo at the castle was fantastic, as was the bus tours. We can also recommend "Jimmy Chungs Chinese buffet bar" on the Waverly bridge was brillient.
The Beverly made our stay just perfect.
The Beverly, located at 40 Murrayfield Avenue in Edinburgh (only a 10 minute bus ride from Princes Street-the main street for meeting tour buses and going to the Information Center) was beautifully decorated, extremely clean, reasonably priced, and provided a hot and delicious, full breakfast. Judy Hutchison went above and beyond her position to assist with site-seeing, helping to set up tours, and even went so far as to get a little tray of snacks together for my son when we arrived at 11:00 p.m. and he was hungry! The bus stop is about a 2-3 minute walk from the Beverly and was very easy to ride. Given the opportunity, I would stay here again without a thought! I have their phone number but don't know how to dial it from any other country except Germany. The number is: 0131-337-1128
