    Historical Traveler Reviews Stain Glass Cottage Colva

    Great Value


    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.

    Pros: The location -- close enough to the action of old town yet far enough so that late evenings are very quiet. We typically took the bus in and walked home. The breakfasts are huge (if I recall, you got cereal, toast, OJ, tea/coffee, eggs and then your choice of up to five other things) and good. The price was outstanding. The room was incredible -- in suite, non-smoking and very large with a bay window overlooking the (very quiet) street. Very clean w/newer carpets. Nice sheets and comforters. Small convience store and pub also appeared very close. You are provided your entrance exit key to both front door as well as your room. Staff are friendly and helpful. The owners plan further enhancements, especially in the shared breakfast area.

    Cons: None for me. Some may prefer to stay right in the heart downtown although I prefer the trade off (quiet, less cost, better room) and found the walk back pleasant even in a November wind. TV channels are limited but this also did not matter to me!

    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.

    Fabulous Breakfast!!!


    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!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Superb Value


    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.

    Excellent Value!


    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!

    ... it. Sophie's Mom was there too and prepared tea for us. I played some tunes on the piano and we all hung out. Viva kept apologizing for the mess, but confessed that she's "lazy" and doesn't "know how to entertain company." I assured her that we were quite content just to finally meet her. Sophie and her Mom went out to find Chinese food to bring back for lunch, and the boys talked to each other while I spoke to Viva. Her life story was fascinating- ...

We then walked around the best escavated fort, and could see the sleeping barracks, shower rooms, the wall etc etc. We drove to Hexham for lunch and got a delicious Brie and salami toasted panini and a coffee. We drove back to Edinburgh and were a little late to bring the car back but they didn't mind. ArnoldClark were so easy to deal with, they didn't charge us anything when ...

    ... 2 mums were tearing their hair out; about 8 kids between them, all running in different directions and getting up to mischief. Fun to watch. Scored a park in Queensferry and walked the town. Great views of the Forth bridges. The original train bridge over the Forth of Firth, more than 100 years old, is a distinct cantilever design. The 'new' car bridge is just about at capacity and they are building another. ...

    ... in the harbor (they were not any there that day), and to get some great views of Ireland's Eye, an Ireland fifteen minutes off the coast where there is a colony of seabirds, including puffins. Just behind Ireland's Eye, there is another Ireland, which is incredibly home to a very happy colony of wallabies! Dublin Zoo had a problem with over prolific breeders in their wallaby population, so they fixed the problem by releasing them onto this Ireland, where, without any ...

    ... monument would grant them freedom and would mean that they wouldnt have to endure any more torture, but it would also leave them with a scar, one that would define the rest of their lives.

    If you were a woman with a scar on your ear, no man would marry you, and without a husband to provide for you or your family you would have to resort to prostitution, which almost always ended up with them being murdered.

    If you were a man and you were found with a scar on your ...
