Stay on the outskirts of Edinburgh
Found the ownership owners very friendly. Very good selection of food for breakfast. Excellent location for bus to and from Edinburgh.

Charming B&B
We were initially drawn to this B&B because it looked so charming and had such positive reviews but we were a little worried about how we would get to the B&B from the airport as well as to sightseeing from the B&B, as we were not renting a car. It could not have been easier! The bus stopped right at the front door and took us directly to Princes Street. The B&B was as charming as the pictures we saw online.The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms were comfy and the breakfasts were wonderful!
