Coffee and Blog Morning in Edinburgh

I have to take time out in writing my catch-up posts to reflect that I am currently sitting in a coffee shop in Edinburgh New Town, opposite our outstanding Guest House with a great view of Edinburgh Castle.

I have had my morning Beet Juice and now onto my 2nd Macchiato – the girls are all out shopping and so apart from them spending too much it cannot get much better.

Fireworks over Edinburgh Castle – Room View


We are staying at CastleView Guest House and it’s family room is outstanding – plenty of room and great view.  Breakfast is not as good as what we got in the rural places but still OK.  A lot of steps as it is a heritage building so they cannot put in a lift – it is the house where Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932), author of “The Wind in the Willows”, was born.

One key trick to mention is that we pre-booked the car into NCP Parking. This was the best value for money as you do not need a car in Edinburgh and few hotels have parking.
