... as we could. It really is such a pretty place in the Summer. The sunsets were in full magnificent glory and we were well into our 30 minutes of vitamin D every day at lunch.
One weekend, actually before Glastonbury, Jason and I finally climbed Arthur's Seat. Not just the craggys to look over the cliffs but the complete mountain which looks huge from most angles. It wasn’t actually too bad a climb. Pretty amazing views from the ...
... S (Marcs and Spencer) and devoured fruit salads of fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, nectarines, watermelon…ahh was simply delish and much needed. Our healthy breakfast was followed up with a decent hike up to Carlton Hill, to grasp a better view of the town. And what a view it was…… We climbed The Monument with slight difficulty and decided that we should attempt to tackle the climb up to Arthur's Seat, which is the highest point ...
... 18th century. Contained within this area, in 1560, was a population of around 10,000 people. I also visited St Giles' Cathedral, more properly termed the High Kirk of Edinburgh, it is the principal place of worship of the Church of Scotland in Edinburgh. A beautiful Cathedral and well worth a visit.
Hope you enjoy the pics folks. To all of the gorgeous people who celebrate birthdays this week. I am thinking about you and sending love.
28/12/12 Today was shopping day. Sarcastic yippee! We found some cheap stuff in Gap and Primark(?) (they're shops) including some blue leggings. Later Grace, Lauren and I went on the Ice Maze (a ride) at the winter festival then we went to watch the Hobbit. Its 3 hours and its only part 1. Unbelievable. ...length I mean. It was a good movie. -Caitlin Shopping day - yay - got some bargains. ...
... and we hope you were entertained. * peedie: an Orkadian word meaning small. In case you haven't noticed we're trying to embrace some of the local dialect. Only some though, because if we wrote like the Scots spoke, you wouldn't understand a word of it. You know those books where they try? (weel be gooing doon tae de loch ye ken) And it's super annoying because then you actually have to concentrate on reading it? Well, we don't do that, but we do like to introduce a couple of words ...

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.
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.
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!
