Personally I …

The drive to Edinburgh Before leaving Pitlochry I decided to visit the Tourist office to see what they recommend as to a route to Edinburgh, you see the usual way is to just head down the freeway and your there in around an hour and a half.

A day about town

The farmer was down on his luck, and travelled to Edinburgh for work. One day, he looked down at something tugging ...

Edinburgh - Festival city

A travel blog entry by mitchpayne

When a Fife bus did eventually arrive, it was the slow one - a quicker one was due fifteen minutes later but we weren't prepared to take the chance and miss it - so we ended up visiting, slowly, every village in Fife and arrived back in St Andrews at 2:15pm!!!   However, we got the washing all done, and walked over to the big supermarket for fruit and veggies, and are feeling quite comfortably "at ...

    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.
