Despite being very ill this was our second stay here and again they were fantastic rooms were clean an comfortable, Breakfast is basic and the fresh home made bread is so lovely. It is within walking distance of the High street but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

I looked around the area, saw the views, then headed back down the hill. I stopped off at the nearby graveyard and had a look around. I then left here and headed back to the royal mile after stopping in a cafe for a coffee. I ...
... chill day it was great. We went shopping down Princes Street and got a few odds and ends that we needed. There were some great sales on so we didn’t spend a huge amount. For lunch we went and got nice salads, chicken, fresh bread and cheese from Marks & Spencers, then ate in the park taking in the view of all the glorious buildings and scenery. Afterwards, we just went back to the hostel for ciders and relaxed in the bar for a bit. We got ...
... challenging here I felt. It was sheer enjoyment done very well. What I got out of it was the use of motifs in the music and visual references that I am sure will play out in my own aesthetic down the road.
