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.

Sad to leave, but heading northward to Inverness and Nairn!
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 …

The tour company we went with was called The Hairy Coo. A hairy coo is actually a type of cow mostly found in Scotland but there are some others similar ones spread out across the globe. These cows are used only for pets and do not provide any commercial use whatsoever. There was a ...
... me emotional, I miss Stitch! After exploring the pubs and renowned spooky area (where all the night spooky tours are conducted) we headed back into central Edinburgh. We walked along Rose Street which is known for all the pubs. We were informed Rose Street is the main strip for bucks nights and the challenge is to have a pint at each pub. We were told if a man said he has had 19 pints, 1 from each pub, he is a liar as the challenge is Impossible...the competitive ...
... br> I had arranged transportation for the group, so I gathered the Shaws and Mickey to have them go to Marchmont and then drop Mickey off at Georges IV Bridge. I went along with the others to Viewcraig Street. I had also sent Steve ahead to meet the landlord, in the event I was late with the group.
All went extremely well and we got everyone situated.
I then walked the group up to our ...
