It is only 1 mile to the High Street from the Guest House and this is where most of the visitor attractions are including the Castle and Holyrood Palace. Another name for this street is the Royal Mile. It is well worth walking along this street and savouring the history which exudes from the buildings. Some of the numerous historical places to visit while on the Royal Mile include
St. Giles Cathedral and John Knox's house.
For those who like to keep fit while on holiday, there is the Olympic standard Commonwealth Swimming Pool and Leisure Centre which is only a 5 minute walk from the Guest House. If you keep walking past the Swimming Pool you will enter the Royal Park and see Arthur's Seat - an extinct volcano. There is a path which you can follow to the top and from there you will have a spectacular view of the City of Edinburgh.
We have lots of information about the City and about the attractions you can visit during your stay. This information is available for use by all of our guests. Of course, Peter or Fiona are available to answer your questions and offer advice when required. We now also have a small libary of books with a Scottish theme for you to enjoy during your stay with us.
You won't have to go far in the evening for a meal. Most tastes are catered for locally; there are a variety of restaurants including Indian, Chinese, Thai, Italian, fish and chips, pub meals, hotel restaurants and a very nice coffee shop serving soups, sandwiches and light meals.
