... on New Year's Eve, but this happy coincidence somehow meant much more to me realising a whole year had passed. 2013 especially had seen so much that that night was the moment it all hit me. All good things, but emotional for sure. The 30th was a torch light procession through the city. It was a neat experience and I'm surprised no one's head caught on fire, but honestly it was a bit lonely to do alone. Thankfully I got lucky that the friend and business ...
... with advance planning, we (Royal We) were able to purchase tickets for GREAT seats only five rows up with a straight view of the front of the castle where all the bands emerge.
The Tattoo was the highlight of the trip. Military bands from Britain, Ireland, New Zealand, Korea, Mongolia, Mexico, and more performed on the esplanade with an assortment of dancers, fireworks, and lighting displays across the face of the castle. The New Zealand band played a fantastic ...
... she writes about magnetism. In discussion I said I don't know what makes someone magnetic but that I think it's so important. After considering la clique I think a lot of magnetism has to do with being in touch with ones mind as well as their physicality. I think it can be learned or blessed upon some lucky ones at birth. Magnetism can definitely be learned because most performers grow into their identities. The only way I ...
... the 'glasshouses' and wandered in the foyer. There was a cost to go through, so I was just satisfied with the front. Massive tropical plants! Finally, I made my way back to the hotel, checked into my room and tried to sleep. I found that if I turned on the TV, I could drown out most of the jackhammer noise and got a pretty good nap. I was very serious about recovering my energy, so didn't do anything else that day. The next day, I did wander up to the castle and bought a few ...

He was delighted to answer any and every question that came to our mind. He then remembered that we were there primarily on Ms Jones's Nephew being there, so he rushed us to meet the nephew and then rushed off to talk to the parishioners. No sooner had we started talking to The Nephew than another young man came rushing up to us, and excitedly asked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kildonan Lodge Hotel Edinburgh
Great weekend in Edinburgh
We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, we could'nt have asked for more, the room was very comfortable and well presented. There is free parking at the back of the hotel which was a bonus, they also had free broadband wireless internet, this was handy as I brought my laptop with me, they also have a computer that guests can use.
Breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful.
I would definately recommend this hotel to other travellers, we would stay here again when we next visit Edinburgh.
Excellent accommodation - give it a try!
We stayed at the Kilodonan Lodge for our 45th wedding anniversary in May 2006 and had a wonderful time - spotlessly clean, fantastic breakfasts and wonderful staff. Give it a try!
Our family of four stayed at Kildonan Lodge Hotel in March, 2006 for 2 nights at the beginning of a three-week holiday throughout Scotland and England. We chose this hotel largely as a result of positive reviews on this site, the reasonable price and the location (a quick cab ride to the Royal Mile).
Superb hotel with that touch of class
Having stayed at this hotel in late november 2005 I didnt even consider anywhere else when it came to my most recent visit to Edinburgh. The staff were a joy and the rooms spacious and tastefully presented. the guests lounge with its honesty bar and warm atmosphere are an absolute joy. The breakfasts are simply outstanding. I look forward to my next visit to Edinburgh, guess where I will be staying.
Stayed here in September 2005, after deciding to spend our 2 weeks holiday at home in Scotland.
We booked in here for 4 nights and left after the first. When we arrived we noticed that bed sheets were dirty and has not been changed from the previous guest. I complained and they were changed immediately. My wife went to take a bath and that had not been cleaned either. We left early the next morning skipping breakfast.
booked in may 05 got there 01/10/05 at 3/o clock laft 3/30pm. terrible four poster room .
Lovely hotel, Excellent food
We stayed here in June 04.
We chose to stay here as my friend and I had graduated that day and we wanted to have a meal with our families. The food in Potters was excellent and the service was wonderful. The staff made us feel really special.
My husband & I stayed the night here, The rooms were very comfortable and quiet.
Would definately go back again!!!
We stayed here with my then Fiancee and he proposed officially in the room with the jacuzzi and the 4 poster bed!!
Lovely room, lovely hotel, bus stop just outside the hotel and not too far into town.
We went to the Italian resturaunt - Juliannos (or something like that) and it was excellent!! Well recommend but fills up real fast so you need to book in advance!!
Hope to come back soon with my now husband!!
A great night to remember!
Very enjoyable stay. Very friendly and welcolming. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Even though it is 1 and 1/2 miles from the centre, there is a bus stop right outside and the buses are regular. Get a day pass - cheap and you can use any bus. You must eat in Potters. The food is top notch and the service is fantastic. My fiance proposed to me there and it was a night to remember. The food, lighting, soft music and attentive staff. I will be coming back!
