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!

... out the lunch supplies to the homeless. When the bus arrived to pick us up and Toby had not returned I asked the bus driver and tour guide to wait for Toby. When Toby got back he said he had walked 6 blocks to try and find a particular guy we had seen with a dog who had a pet jacket on but couldn't find him. I was so proud of Toby for his kind act and persistence to search for the homeless man.
Once we were back at the hotel we had an hour to get ready to go on ...
... could take after this -- a free walking tour Eva had strongly suggested, stand in line forever at the Edinburgh Castle, visit Holyrood Castle where the queen stays when she's in town, take a Hop-On-Hop-Off tour...but instead we went to the Dr. Jekyll and Hyde pub she had also mentioned.
What a find! We had a blast there. First the décor is just fun and awesome; For example, the entrance to the toilets completely blends into the wall,; there ...
... it was. Using an audio system, I walked around the vessel – getting to see all the state rooms, kitchens and even the royal bedrooms. While some rooms were quite large, it wasn’t nearly as ornate or 'stuffy’ as I had expected. In fact, the Queen’s and prince Philip’s bedrooms were really quite ordinary as was the honeymoon suite which has been used by various members of the royal family and visiting ...
To drive past the Edinburgh Castle and the magical monuments that lined the city centre I realized I was in the most beautiful city I had ever seen! Going to Calton Hill, Arthurs Seat and walking the Royal Mile all I could see was stunning scenery in every direction.
If only the Scottish weather wasn't sooooo bad! Although some sun shining, rain and wind is defiantly not a good mix.
The last night in Scotland was my ...
As the title says today was our final performance on the outdoor stage at Speigel Terrace. It was fun because we got to share it with our families. We walked over to New Town for the final time as we excitedly performed our set. Once again, we were down Tom, Lindsay and Emma as they rested their voices. Emma's idea of vocal rest is talking less, she cannot keep quiet. It is like a shark trying to keep still, it would die. I think Emma would ...
