It's located at the Edinburgh Castle. You have to walk in a very short alley. To the right is this magical door. You enter in a place with velvet and tapestries. Antiques lamps, chandeliers and in every table a candlelight with a little bouquet of...More
We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of two + weeks in Scotland. The hotel is not ordinary in any way. There is no "check-in desk" or lobby - you register with the folks at the restaurant. It is located about 100 yards...More
This is one of the places that everyone wants to visit in Edinburgh and after going to dinner one night I can see why. We had to book at least 4 weeks in advance at the time, if we'd have known about the different rooms...More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
