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.

The bus dropped us off on Waverly Bridge which is the connecting point of old and new Edinburgh.

... Fish is still an important part of the diet, but not the way it was when I was a child here. We used to have a horse-drawn cart come to our street twice a week to sell fresh fish. I don’t know if we were more fascinated by the skill of filleting the fish by the fishmonger’s wife, or the placid patience of the horse waiting to go on to its next street. I know I’m sounding like an old codger here but as I visit the former fishing ...
... lentils, pine nuts, mozzarella, and chicken. It was great! Everyone else enjoyed their pizzas, too. We had been looking for banoffee pie earlier in the week, so when we saw it on the menu, we decided to give it a try.
Next up was the pub crawl, which began at The Beehive Inn at the Grassmarket. Quick side note: the street used to be the site of public executions, and there are several ...
