        I have had 4 nights in total at Pollock Halls and I have to say it was better than I imagined.
        Friendly help.
        Great rooms
        value for money
        Get bar and meals- I too had my first Scottish meal here which was the Scottish Steak and Ale Pie.
        If I ever came back to Edinburgh I would stay here- great B&B

        Today is the memorial of my darling Grandfather-Ron Hancock passing.... what an amazing man he was.

        ... we opt for lunch in the Royal Tea Room and find the staff unbelievably pleasant, as if we are royalty ourselves. As Ann and I cannot decide on our order, our waitress actually asks us permission to excuse herself until we are ready to decide on our menu choice! Our meal is not as pricey as I would have expected for this Royal setting ..we opt for the salmon tea sandwiches and cauliflower soup of the day with a tart UK specialty lemonade that is DIVINE! After lunch ...

        ... eased up and as the winter sets in, the icy waters will have all but stopped flowing, until the Spring melt starts to fill it again. Our time in Edinburgh was too short. Time was running out and we had to be back on the bus before the clock struck 2pm. The magic hand of time had expired but left a magic memory. Back on the bus the two hour drive gave us time to soak in the Scottish countryside until boarding our ship and setting sail, for the icy city of Rejkavic, ...
