Today woke up and was ready to go. My last day - and decided to go to the National Gallery of Scotland. The art collection is amazing. Gosh - dating back to the 1400's at least...a few Rembrandts (wow!) and a beautiful section of impressionists...renior, monet, cezzane... and most of all an incredible piece done in silk and gold thread embroidered …
We are FREEZING!! It is sooo cold. We have been so lucky to not have very much rain - but tons of wind and cold...Today we went to Arthurs Seat...and thought we would climb it... ha! We could barely stand up straight cause the wind was so strong. We gave up and ran into the first thing we found - Starbucks. Hayley has been getting over a cold and …
Spent way too much time trying to upload pics from yesterday...and the computer keeps losing the connection, so on to today! We left York at 9 and traveled by train to Edinburgh. Love the train!! Listen to my ipod while reading "Time Travelers Wife"...Hayley's favorite book of all time. She worked on her paper. The scenery was incredible. We saw …
... and a very visited cemetery! Jk Rowling used to sit at a coffee shop and write a lot there because her brother in law owned it so she would get free coffee and heating! She also took her daughter for walks through the cemetery (sounds weird but they use it as a park too) and would be inspired by the names of the people buried there. They have a moody, a Tom riddle, a magonagol and a few others I forget! It was really neat to ...
... to let him know we'd arrived. Shortly after, Bob greeted us warmly and escorted us to the board room where we had a nice chat about the history of the NLB and took some photos.
We then made our way back to Waverly Bridge where we hopped on the bus that would take us out to Leith and the Royal Yacht Brittania. We passed the Royal Botanical Gardens (I had hoped to hop off there, but decided to save that for another trip), the home ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Aonach Mor Guest House Edinburgh
This is a high quality B&B located within walking distance (15 to 20 minutes) of the Royal Mile or a very short walk (less than two blocks) from the bus stop (where buses take you directly into town). The property is very well managed (new ownership in April '03, I believe) and offers a great value.
Excellent B&B - Aonach Mor Guest House
Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Edinburgh for a week and by sheer luck found The Aonach Mor Guest House.Well I can't say enough about our accommodation. It was very clean and the breakfasts were unbelievably wonderful! And I found the proprietors very warm and friendly. They gave us great ideas of where to visit, and what to do. They were the type of people that you felt you've known forever - I think this is what Scottish hospitality is all about.I couldn't recommend a better place to stay if you ever have the opportunity to visit Edinburgh.
A true value and a pleasant stay
Don't waste too much time looking around for a better place to stay.
The proprietors are fantastic and genuine people with a clear focus on providing just the right service and atmosphere. The rooms are great and breakfast done with a personal, home-cooking touch (potatoe scones and poached eggs!). I came back to Edinburgh during the same trip and re-booked at Aonach Mor. I'm sure I'll be back in Scotland again and I'm sure I'll be staying there once again.
This is the best place to stay in Edinburgh - every little detail is thought of, the owners will go out of their way to make sure your stay is as relaxing and fun packed as possible!! Highly recommended.
Great B&B in Edinburgh
My wife, 14-year-old daughter and I spent five days at Aonach Mor, a wonderful bed and breakfast in Edinburgh. The neighborhood was quaint and quiet. The inn had a lovely garden and was beautifully decorated. We had a view of King Arthur's seat from our bay window overlooking the garden. The meals were excellent, and the service was professionally rendered and unobtrusive. They also provided high-speed Internet access, including use of a fast computer. We were easy walking distance from the center of town. But the best feature of the inn was the hosts, Ross and Kathleen Birnie. They made us feel welcome, and taught us to eat haggis and black pudding.
Very peacefull,but still in city centre wow!!!!!
made to feel at home,so close to town but yet so peacefull,a hidden secret.But ill tell all!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent Value and really helpful staff - glad I found this place - makes the Edinburgh experience even better.
Great atmosphere,touch of Scotland
Best Breakfast ever, so close to town, but very peaceful, my ratings as N0.1,in Edinburgh, everything at hand, what service, wish there was more like this one.
I visit Edinburgh a lot and was very pleased to find the Aonach Mor Guest House.Excellent value and I would recommend it without hesitation.
Great Guest House in a Great City
Stayed at this small and friendly place for a week in January this year (while in Edinburgh for New Years!).I absolutely recommend Edinburgh for New Years (or any time of the year) and was so pleased to have found the Aonach Mor, which is a superb value Guest House near some spectacular scenery but still near the down-town area of the city. Friendly staff and the legendary Scottish breakfast was superb.My time in Edinburgh is the best vacation I've ever had - have already planned to go back this May, then the Festival in August! and then I'll probably be back next New Years! - will definately stay at Aonach Mor again - if they'll have me!As I say, Great Guest House in a Great City in a Great Country!
