    A Great Stay

    Sorry - we spent most of the night chuckling over the "Starbucks is too far away" review. Ridiculous.

    Anyway, stay was great. We were staying at 23 Mayfield and required an additional night, but Mayfield was booked. Ross rang Jimmy at Glenalmond and worked out a reasonable price for us. Jimmy took us in with a smile, gave us a room key at 10a.m. and would have given us the room on the spot, but guests were still unpacking. They told us the room would be ready by noon and kindly allows us to keep the car in their lot. Sadly, we were side-tracked by our ten-mile "walk" through Edinburgh (Glenalmond is hop-skip-jump from Salisbury Crags, Arthur's Seat, St. Anthony's chapel ruins, Holyrood Palace, Burns'/Nelson's/National Monuments, Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle - not to mention numerous pubs/parks/restaurants - try Positano's - great Italian about 0.25 miles turning right out of Glenalmond).

    We were pleasantly surprised by a four-post imitation mahogany bed on return (see pics). Mattress was a little stiff, but that's just a preference complaint - nothing against the stay.

    Breakfast in morning was superb - Jimmy's omelet reviews on here were true to their word. Multiple times, we were asked how the food was, how we were doing, how we enjoyed our stay, where to go, how to get there, what to see. Very kind.

    Ignore the high-maintenance Starbucks/"I need six keys" review, please. I'm sure one of the hardest parts of these owners' jobs is dealing with said un-please-able/unpleasant people.

    Thanks for a nice stay.

    Woke up to lovely breakfast (and veggie haggis!!) at 23 Mayfield. We decided to spend another night in Edinburgh, but all of the Mayfield rooms were booked, but the owner was kind enough to call a neighboring bed and breakfast (Glenalmond House) and arrange yet another lovely stay for us. They allowed us to check in in the morning, which gave use …

    ... from Malaysia to Brisbane. Sarah having taken a separate flight from Paris for her first visit to Australia was left to fend for herself for her first two days. I guess I should be grateful for having given her a key to the unit prior to leaving Paris. Anyway they are both in Brisbane and no doubt catching up on the antics of the past couple of days!
    Friday we were off to the British Open at St Andrews and whilst the start was delayed because of ...

    Edinburgh day two: don't diss Mary Queen of Scots

    ... here LOVE Mary. This was made especially clear to me today when my parents and I visited Holyrood House. Holyrood is still a working royal palace. It's the Queen's "official residence" when she comes to Scotland. As such, much of the Palace is closed to visitors. But what isn't is largely devoted to preserving the history of the Palace's inhabitants, Including Mary Queen of Scots. Her apartments are kept just as she left them.

    Even though my loyalties lie with ...

    ... what I would like to do at home especially with our kitchen (don't worry I took photos), bought a few bits and pieces but not as much as I would of liked. A bit more of a drive to a couple of clothing shops then home. I introduced Tina and Robert to YIAH and cooked Thai green curry and rice, yummy. A bit more of a chat, Skype with Heath and the lids then off to bed to get some rest before another busy day ...
