Found Fraoch (means Heather - hence Ling reference in title - try to keep up) House on Trip Advisor and booked with Expedia for one night's business stop over. Gareth runs the place and greeted me with a pot of coffee and delicious shortbread while I filled out the arrival forms. He recommended a couple of restaurants in Leith (see... More

Lovely quiet guest house that is convenient for city centre. Great breakfast and nothing is too much trouble for Gareth who has a genuine interest in making sure his guests are well catered for . Room on first floor at back was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend

The location of Fraoch House is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. Buses into the city are only a short walk away. This has been a great stay for us and we will... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Fraoch House. It was our first time staying at a B&B and we loved it! Gareth welcomed us when we arrived and he was lovely. He gave us a map of Edinburgh and explained everything we needed to know about transport etc. We loved how Gareth has a cabinet... More

What a pleasant experience, never stayed in a B&B always opted for hotels,but this has changed my mind and would recommend Fraoch House for anyone visiting Edinburgh, conviently situated just a 10-15 min walk to the east end of princess street and walking distance to most attractions and shopping on street free parking is great as the cost of parking...

My children and I had a rather arduous journey just getting to Scotland from the U.S. Gareth checked on us due to our delay which was very thoughtful. He helped tremendously in navigating us to a Rugby game which started 3 hours after we arrived and I was determined to get the field. After all, I enjoy watching Rugby and... More

Stay here. From the moment I came to the door I was struck dumb by the beauty, elegance, comfort and 'home' feel. Gareth is a treasure and set me straight on all the delights and sights Edinburgh could offer. He also makes a delish breakfast. Worth every penny and more!

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this fab B&B! Gareth met us on arrival and was so friendly and welcoming, nothing was ever too much trouble throughout our stay and he was happy to advise on places to visit, restaurants etc. The B&B was about a 15-20min walk from the town centre, but my husband and I did...

Fraoch House is truly an amazing B&B and the best one we ever stayed! Beautiful rooms, excellent breakfast, a great location and eye for details! Gareth, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, knows all the 'right' places and made us feel really at home. Fraoch House is a once in a lifetime experience! Annemarie and Marc, Netherlands
