The first night (Dec. 30) we took part in the annual torchlight ceremony. We joined thousands of torch carriers as they illuminate the city through the City Centre to a spectacular Son et Lumière and fireworks finale. Among the hoard of torch laden participants were children in strollers...with torch in hand (swaying menacingly at our eye level) as well! We definitely wouldn't have ...
In a desperate bid to track down some traditional music, Susie and I sniffed out a Caelidh on the Friday night. It's been a while since we wheeled out our promenades and polka steps, but willows were stilled stripped and white seargents were still dashed. - we were absolutely buggared but **** it was fun.
Catch you later
Steppin' Susie and flyin' feet Frankie.
PS Still no sign of Susie's cute little leather pouch.

I walked around the backside of the church, where there was a parking lot area. Here was a large building known as the Old Parliament House. This housed the Scottish Parliament until 1707, when it was dissolved. It now holds the civil law courts. I went to the entrance, and was about to go in, when a man at the entrance said they were closed on Saturday’s, and I would need ...
... Urquhart Castle and the gorgeous and mysterious Loch Ness. From Inverness we travelled to Edinburgh with a pit stop for dinner at Village of Blair Athol, arriving home 11pm.
Exhausted but thrilled with the day and how the girls withstood the torture of the drive.
Looking forward to walking the Royal Mile in the morning before we move onto the Lake District for 2 nights. Not sure if there is WiFi there, but I'll fill you in when we next have ...
... Wounded. All very tried as we view the Forth Road Bridge back into Edinburgh. We say goodbye to our new friends and cool tour guides and head off to the pub for some fish and chips.
Our last day was spent roaming around the centre of lovely Edinburgh looking at shops, buying (and eating shortbread) and listening to the bagpipes :)
Thanks for reading. More to come!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ceilidh-Donia Edinburgh
Lovely little hotel not far from the city centre. Quick cab ride for about £5 or a £1 on the bus. The hotel is in a pretty quiet location with great views of Arthur's Seat. It is very clean and comfortable.
I stayed at Ceilidh-Donia Hotel while in Edinburgh for university interviews. Its a really nice wee hotel, in a fairly quiet area - although it is only a 2 minute walk to bus routes into the city. They have stairs up to most of the rooms but this wasnt a problem for me, and I was offered help in taking my luggage up. The shower in my room was brilliant!! It was quite a small room, but cosy and very comfortable. They provide an excellent choice of breakfast, served in the dining room which is very smart, and has a great atmosphere with radio 2 on in the morning! They give you a set of keys for inside and outside doors which was great as I was out late on the first night of my stay. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the afforementioned dogs were very quiet and peaceable! If I was staying in Edinburgh on holiday again (although the next time I go will probably be when I go to university!) I would definitely stay here again!
We stayed at this hotel earlier this week. We had chosen it because of the favourable TripAdvisor reviews and also because it is recommended by Rick Steve, the USA travel guru. We also wanted somewhere close to The University's Pollock Halls of Residence where our daughter is currently based.
It is not hard to see why this hotel is so highly rated. I won't repeat the praise given by other visitors - suffice it to say we booked the hotel on the basis of these recommendations and were not disappointed.
I was very happy with my stay at the Hotel Ceilidh-Donia. Although it is off the beaten path from the Royal Mile/Princess Street area, it is an easy walk or bus ride. The rooms were nicely decorated, and the new power showers were wonderful. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly, including the two dogs. Free internet access in the bar also available. Price included a nice choice of breakfast items which could be ordered the night before.
Great Hotel at a Great Rate
We stayed in Edinburgh for three nights in March 2004. I don't think we could have found a better hotel at any price. The owners and staff were extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms were comfortable and well kept. The food was excellent. The hotel was just a 5 Pound taxi ride away from the city center. This hotel is a steal at the rates offered. If we return to Edinburgh we will be staying here again.
This is a fantastic bed & breakfast! It feels like a 5 star hotel for the price of a 3 star! We were warmly welcomed by the staff and the food was delicious, its hard to find a bad word to say about it! Highly recommended!
What a wonderful stay in Edinburgh! This hotel is just perfect. Just 15 minutes walk from the city centre, the location is great. Not too noisy, but not stuck out in the middle of nowhere! Buses go to and from town every 10 minutes if you don't fancy walking and parking in the area of the hotel isn't too hard to find.
This bed and breakfast was wonderfully inviting and cozy after a week in the hustle and bustle of London. My husband and I stayed here for one night for our honeymoon in early October. Alan was polite, informative and weathered our barrage of questions with admirable patience. He got our breakfast orders for the next day right away and everything was correct and delicious. The resident dog was quite sweet and added to the homey feel of the place. The room itself was comfortable, though maybe a bit dated, and we had a fantastic view of Arthur's Seat. The location is easy enough as far as taking a bus into downtown Edinburgh but we got hopelessly lost coming back. We rode the bus for an hour with a grumpy, unhelpful driver before throwing in the towel and taking a cab. Still, our experience was wonderful and we wish we'd stayed longer in Edinburgh. Take the Mercat ghost tour!
Our group of 15 people really enjoyed our stay at this B&B type hotel on May 13&14. It's a small cozy place (13 rooms), but it packs a lot into the space. The rooms were nice and the showers had very good water pressure. It was also convenient to have a bar and restaurant available on the premises and the free Internet access was a much appreciated bonus! Full breakfast was included with the room rate.
