James and Angela are fantastic hosts with vast knowledge of the city, and their home is in a perfect location for traveling in and around Edinburgh. We stayed as a group in separate rooms, and they were extremely accommodating of our travel plans. The food,...More

stayed here 2 nights to start our Scotland trip - Angela and James were wonderful hosts, and answered our many questions. They probably answer the same questions over and over, but they made us feel special. Good location. Quiet neighborhood. Great breakfast. Highly recommend.
We spent here 2 nights of our road trip honeymoon around Scotland. No words are enough to thank Angela and James because we have started our trip in a wonderful way. The room was big, very clean and comfortable. The position of the building is...More
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of
Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
