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 …
... fighting in the Iraqi war. It was cool, she just nonchalantly passed by our tour bus. The last day, we shopped around and went to portobello market and the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. Both were really great. Overall I had a wonderful trip and glad my dad got to experience traveling. I think he finally understood why I enjoy it so much. Spring break treated me well. I didn't have to spend any money and got to stay in hotels, always a good ...
... to the New Town area, which is a little strip of area across the river that has all of the high-end shops and hotels. We stop in at a bar, the Newsroom, in the hope of finding the Tottenham match, but when Remy goes to ask the bartender to change the channel, he says since they are called "The Newsroom" they have to play the news. Funny. We get some beer-battered haggis for the table to try, since Mike had been aching to try some haggis the entire time. I am ...
... of history that is filled with peoples hopes and dreams. We, as Americans, are so wrapped up in the importance of our own lives that we somehow fail to notice the big picture. What is enduring is art, love and passion. Enjoying the time you have on this earth. It passes way too quickly. Then you become another brick in the cobblestone street.
Hoping for a sunny day tomorrow! We are doing the DOUBLE DEAD TOUR!!!
