          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.

          Today we left at 8:30am in the Saunders' car for the two-hour drive to Edinburgh for the Tattoo and sightseeing. Although I was looking forward to the Tattoo, I had not expected to enjoy it as much as I did. It was absolutely terrific. The theme was "East meets West" and there were bands and performers from all around the world including ...

          As we contemplated packing to leave Edinburgh, we realised how much more there is still to see and do. We might just have to go back to Edinburgh again. There is so much history there and whilst it is a brown city (you know how Italian cities are orange) it has so much to offer the tourist. On Saturday we visited the Gold exhibition and the Queen's Holyrood Palace which is austere but exudes ...

          What a day!  It was sunny today (like the blessed weather I seem to carry with me) and there was something I needed to do. I needed to climb.  Arthur's Seat.  Now, believe you me,...how does that sentence even make sense. Believe. You. Me.  Anyway...I know I am not the fittest person to ever walk the planet and I know things always look smaller before you attempt to climb them but seriously.  I was fit enough to walk up, but I was not finding the middle part easy. In fact, to ...

          ... in Edinburgh, which is not ideal. Fortunately, we have two weeks in this beautiful city.

          After we checked in to our accommodation, which is just outside and within walking distance of the city, we vegged and stayed in for the rest of the day. This is in no small part due to the very comfortable flat, and our landlady leaving us a lovely care package of deliciousness that meant we did not need to head out for anything. We went through a review of the "Best ...
