... mass so were able to see fairly close. What an experience. Next we went to the elephant cafe were JK Rowling wrote the first two Harry potter books. After Sharing a lamb pie and coffee we were ready to keep going. The national museum of Scotland was our next stop and we partook in a free tour of the Scottish exhibit and learnt more about it's turbulent history. The museum itself was huge and covered everything from ancient Egypt to dolly the cloned ...
... Burrito, change of mind when I got there, to chicken. Walked home in the dark and back to the room.
Over to the shopping side of town visiting Jenner's, Primark, Curry Electronics, numerous other women's shops that I don't know the name of because they all looked the same and the National Gallery. Forgot to say that it rained all day and so we came home early and I am catching up on this ...
... House outside the village of Peebles. It's a traditional Scottish Baronial mansion and Helen visits and brings tours here quite often. We were led into a warm sitting room with comfortable chairs and small tables, stunning views and a fire place. I decided on the Lapsang souchong tea. While we waited, it gave us an opportunity to get to know Helen better and vice versa. We will be spending a lot of time together this next week, starting on Thursday. Tea was served, along ...

We then got to the castle which is incredible, sitting high up on a rocky hill in the middle of the city like in a fairytale. After the castle the tour moved to the greyfriers graveyard where there were many ghost stories. The graveyard is home to over 100,000 people as a result of the black plague, it ...

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!
