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 …
Final post about Scotland - all the random bits of trivia and an awesome conversation I overheard at lunch one day. Zucchini is called 'Courgette' Arugula is called 'Rocket' Soda is 'Fizzy Juice' (which is absolutely hilarious in action) Irn Bru, Scotland's favorite soda, is 38% sugar! according to the bottle. Scotland is also the only developed country in the world where Coke is not the top-selling soda. Thistles are the ...
The Fringe Festival is the largest one of its type in the world, and the
program catalog is nearly 400 pages long with up to twenty events listed on
every two pages. Some acts feature famous by performers such as Scottish folk musician Dougie Maclean, but most of the performances feature the unfamous. Tickets are around 8 to 10 Scottish pounds but there are large numbers of ...
... Tickets secured we walk back down the Royal Mile to the Museum of Childhood. It's free and they have loos! Actually it's not a bad museum. Spread over four floors there are all sorts of toys and games. Some of the exhibits look as if they'd scare a child to death! Many of them we recognise, another sure sign of ageing. After lunch we visit the Scottish Parliament. There is an airline style security process of x-ray machines and such like. ...
