Marty ate 'haggis' last night. The cabaret was deep in Scottish tradition and demonstrated the passion they have for their country. Over 500 people in a tent at Prestonfield in Edinburgh. Photos attached. Visited Edinburgh Castle and had ...
... are street performers and side stages everywhere, and every time you turn around another person is handing you a flyer in the hopes that you’ll come see their show. However, no time for that currently - my target right now is the tour.
For the next three hours we navigate the crowds as our tour guide explains a bit more about the Old Town area and a little bit of Scottish history. It was interesting, though a little disjointed in its focus. ...
... He took us around the old town of Edinburgh, past churches, parliament buildings, and statues. There are a lot of statues of people around the town, who had never even been to Edinburgh, and had nothing to do with the place! Apparently this is because Edinburgh was so pretentious back in the day, that they just put up statues of people they thought they were similar to.. Like Alexander the Great! We stopped for lunch in the grassmarket, which is a stretch of road with heaps ...

I feel like Edinburgh is a place that sucks a lot In by it's beauty and historical background. It is filled with so many stories and is fascinating. Sending love to everyone and I miss you all!tomorrow is a tour of the highlands and Nessie hunting for the lochness ! ...

This graveyard looks out onto George Harriet's, which was originally created as a school for the impoverished. However, now it is a quite posh private school, which also served as J.K Rowling's original inspiration for the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
This cemetery is also rumored to be haunted, which is why parts of it are currently chained off. There ...

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!
