From Edinburgh with love

A travel blog entry by taydubois

... ahead. As we drove out of Edinburgh, I knew it would not be the last time I come to this city. I fell in love with it. It is without a doubt the best city I have traveled to. It's filled with rich history, great architecture, amazing stories, and cool accents.

The ride was pretty smooth. The time went by fast except for the last two hours when we were absolutely miserable. I was getting car sick (bus sick?) at this point. We were in central London, so we new we were close ...

Drive to Edinburgh

... real challenge when parallel parking the car on the left side of the road with a razor-sharp flagstone curb - and yes, it was uphill both ways and snowing (ok, not really on that last part).

Long story short. What would have been a little bump as we grazed the curb while parking turned out to be a sidewall gash in the "tyre". Poor Alfred. We - that would be the Royal We, again - changed the tire and left Alfred ...

Edinburgh and Day Trips

... Gullane – about 4 hours. I was amazed at the diversity of beach stones. Each little cove seems to have its own variety of rock type and formation, including ancient volcanic rock. It must be a geologist's dream.


Margaret and Alan took me on a wonderful day trip to Dunbar a small town right at the mouth of the Firth of Forth and technically, “just around the corner” and on the North Sea. Once an ...

... but coming over Iceland and landing at Keflavik was like dropping onto a different planet....the land was so barren, bright and empty. The airport was large and modern, but completely deserted, apart from the plane load of people on our flight that had just disembarked, and including ours, there were just three planes on the runway. The surrounding area is beautiful, barren and rocky and kind of reminiscent of the North York Moors, but ...

Day 8 - Edinburgh

... with rich histories. The Last Drop tavern is in reference to the last hanging on the Grassmarket, and the Maggie Dickson Pub is named after Maggie Dickson, who awoke in her coffin after being hanged and was allowed to go free as a result. The White Hart Inn is one of the oldest pubs in the city and was, at two separate times, home to both Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burns. The tour took us from ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Victorian Town House Edinburgh

    Best place to stay in Edinburgh!!


    We were travelling to Edinburgh for a relaxing 3 day break and this B&B was definitely a great palce to stay. Aileen the host is extremely friendly and very accommodating. Our flight arrived at 8 am so we were at the B&B far before the usual check in time. This caused no problem - we were allowed check into our room early and Aileen even insisted on cooking us breakfast.

    The room we stayed in was beautiful and very comfortable. there were lots of little extra touches - bathroom bits and bobs and a decanter of whiskey. The breakfast each morning really was great and set us up for the day!

    I would highly recommend this B&B - it is within easy walking distance from the city is close to come very nice restaurants and is wasy to get to from the airport.

    Scottish Hospitality at its best


    We were advised by family members that this was an excellent place to stay, and how right they were. The spacious, spotlessly clean, and well appointed rooms contained several little extra touches which made our stay that much more enjoyable. The hosts were extremely friendly, excellent cooks, and so understanding when one of our party was unwell.

    The location, only 10 minutes walk from Princes Street, was ideal, and we recommend this venue without reservation.

    Most welcoming B&B


    We stayed here for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year in the Oriental room. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The room was very nicely decorated with lots of extra touches - plenty of toiletries in the shower room and lots of fluffy white towels. Chocolates on our pillows the first night (very comfortable bed), a decanter of whisky always there and on our last night a dish of biscuits had appeared. The other two rooms were equally as nice and all decorated for Christmas.

    Fantastic bed and breakfast


    My husband and i stayed at this wonderful bed and Breakfast during a short stay in Edinburgh. The rooms are beautifully decorated and full of thoughtful touches such as the noggin of whiskey to end your evening. Rooms have en-suite as well as sitting areas, in fact you would be hard pushed to find such standards in Edinburghs top hotels. The location is perfect, a short stroll to the west end and the Hosts friendly, helpful and great cooks!!!!

    Fabulous in every way


    This bed and breakfast is really superb. Aileen the host makes you welcome from the moment you step in. The rooms are spacious and decorated to a very high standard. Lots of nice little touches such as chocs on pillows, great toiletries and she had even put xmas lights up in the room for us.

    The breakfasts were delicious and the best I've had in a b & b. Felt more like home from home.

    The location is good, about 10-15mins walk to the beginning of Princes Street and there are lots of buses that run along if needed.

    You can get the citylink bus from the airport to Haymarket Station and then a 5 min walk, this only cost £5 return or £3 single.

    Unique even down to the rooms.


    The Victorian Town House is a three bedroomed B&B contained within the basement of a grand victorian house in a impressive crescent 10 mins walk from Princes Street. Each room is large, invidually themed and decorated to a very high standard with quality furnishings and a nice extra little touches like a small decanter of whiskey. We even had clean toothbrushes provided in our room and lots of toiletries as well.

    First Class!


    I stayed in this Bed & Breakfast for one night in August 2006 and I really cannot recommend it highly enough. It is in a very convenient location in a lovely crescent in the New Town, only about ten minutes walk to Princes Street .

    Excellent guesthouse


    We went to Scotland for a week, spent our final night in Edinburgh in the victorian townhouse. It was easily the best guesthouse that we stayed in. the rooms are beautiful and each unique, the hostess is so friendly, the breakfast top class and there are loads of personal touches. it is only around 15mins walk from new town so is in a really good location. would really recommend this guesthouse.

    A Charming Discovery


    We recently stayed at "The Victorian Townhouse" in Edinburgh's Eglinton Crescent, and could not have picked a better location for an overnight stay. Eglinton Crescent nestles among the majestic architecture of the New Town, and it is a pleasant walk from there to the West End or Stockbridge, for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Aileen, our hostess, greeted us on arrival, and gave us a fascinating tour of her stunning home. She is a wonderful lady who really makes you feel as if you are part of her family whilst staying with her, although as all the guest rooms and kitchen are in the basement with its separate entrance(which has an amazing amount of natural light), you retain your independence from the workings of the private residence. The bedroom was decorated with Scottish memorobilia and in a Scottish style - there is even a welcoming carafe of whisky to pour a dram from, a lovely touch. Lovely personal touches are what Aileen's business is all about, there was a wide selection of toiletries in the immaculate en suite, and she also provides adaptor plugs for visitors from overseas.



    Stupendo!!! A 5 minuti a piedi da Princess Street.

    Abbiamo dormito nella Colonian Room, stanza grande, pulitissima bagno immenso insomma tutto ok. Siamo arrivati alle 10 e anche se in check-in era dalle 14, abbiamo lasciato i bagagli e siamo usciti. Al nostro ritorno abbiamo trovato nella nostra camera una bottiglia di vino con 2 calici e una scatola di dolci scozzesi!!!!

    Colazione "senza limiti" tutto buonissimo e incredibile disponibilitą e simpatia della proprietaria
