    clean and comfortable, good staff.
    No TV in the rooms and the front road is very noisy due to it being a cobblestone road.
    don't stay here if you are driving, there no parking without have to feed a parking meter every 4 hours.

    ... 10. I'm glad I did because I feel so much better and they also got lost and walked over 8 miles in the rain. Our flat is very quiet at night, which is a plus. We left the flat around 11am and went straight to a pub to eat. We ended up at a place called Fiddlers Arms and ate the most delicious fish and chips. It was located at the base of the Edinburgh Castle. The bar smelled clean because we were the first and only people to be in it. The craziest part was ...

    After returning to Newark from Italy we had decided that because were so close to Scotland that we should take a quick trip there to have a look around. We jumped on the train and sped north to Edinburgh. The trains from Newark go straight there (with a few stops) so it's pretty easy and we are now well equipped to sit on the train/plane and read, play games on screens or watch movies. Anyway, three hours or so later and we ...

    First thing this morning we visited the Edinburgh Farmers' Markets on Castle Terrace, just under the Castle. It was only a small market, too busy, but quite expensive. We only bought some artisan bread and gorgeous strawberries, but we had plenty of free samples. I still think the markets at Manly in Brisbane are the best.

    From there, we drove down to the Leith Docks, the Port of Edinburgh, where the Royal Yacht Britannia ...

    ... killed his only friend and drank his blood.ew Also, if you have ever heard of Greyfriar' s Bobby by Disney was based off a real dog from this city. It is on my must see watch list when I return.

    We went to the Edinburgh castle which sits on a dormant volcano. It was beautiful from the outside, but a waste of money to go in as there was slot blocked off and not much to see. That night we went to a pub crawl tour. We got a free shot at each pub we went to. ...

    ... perch overlooking the city. Between the two is the area known as Old Town, and the Royal Mile. It’s here that I get my next shock.

    People are everywhere! It’s festival time in Edinburgh; this is the largest arts festival in the world, and the next three weeks will see thousands of performances at hundreds of venues across the city. Today’s the first weekend of the festival, and there is a massive crowd of people on the Royal ...
