This was like Downton Abbey, on a smaller and more personable scale. We stayed for only one night, but I would gladly return for a longer stay. The location is great, just a few miles from EDI airport, and also a few minutes walk to a train station with direct access to Waverley in Edinburgh. There are no eateries in... More

Lovely secluded B & B. Beautiful old house in it's own grounds. Very welcoming and helpful owners. We had a large double bedroom with its own en suite bathroom. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room. TV. Lovely cooked breakfast. B & B is 5 min walk from rail station (20 mins into Edinburgh)

We stayed here as a base to visit Edinburgh: it is an easy drive into the city and also nearby park & ride. The House is a former Manse, well furnished and full of character with lovely gardens and great views to the North. Our room was very comfortable, our hostess Jill was very welcoming and we enjoyed an excellent... More

We stayed here for two nights. Jill, our hostess was very accommodating and didn't mind our late arrival from Edinburgh airport! Lovely breakfast both mornings and our room was great. We had a car, so it was a quick drive to the 'Park and Ride' to catch a bus into the city center. We would definitely recommend this B&B. The... More

A traditional Scottish manse, beautifully furnished and comfortable. We chose it as we wanted to visit Jupiter Artland, a sculpture park nearby. We were made very welcome and would definitely go again.

We booked here for the night before and night of our wedding. Our wedding was 400m away at Kirknewton Stables so Highfield could not have been more ideal. The house is huge and beautiful. The rooms are a great size, comfortable and homely. Jill was a fantastic host, very helpful and friendly. This would be a great place to stay... More

We stayed at this fantastic place last August. Perfect place to stay if you are in Edinburgh at that time, because both the Military Tattoo and the Edfringe Festival gathers huge crowds then, which affects availability and prices regarding hotels. The builing itself is worth a stay. Then add the great hospitality of the owner, Jill Hunter Gordon, who makes... More

We love hearty protein rich breakfasts, but after 2 weeks of the same type of food up and down the UK, we grew weary. But behold, we met up with Jill Hunter Gordon who wins the award of the best breakfast preparer in all the land. We would definitely return to this guest house for the food, the people, the... More

The house is beautiful. The room was spacious. The ensuite was modern. I got the best sleep ever on the comfortable bed. The woman (I can't remember her name) was welcoming. She loved answering all my questions about the house. I felt like a queen eating breakfast in the large dining room. When we ran into the husband of the... More

Comfortable bedroom and ensuite. Quiet area with a delightful garden - but we had no time to sit and relax. Breakfasts take place round a large dining room table. Trains a short walk away to go to Edinburgh or Glasgow.
