10.0 Excellent
Pros:Wonderful place and a wonderful host. Vivienne is knowledgeable about Edinburgh, and even managed to send us to an excellent kilt maker! The room was a bit cozy, but there are larger rooms available. The area is a bit too far to walk into the city center, but there are regular buses and cabs. The breakfast was satisfying and not an overwhelming Full Eng, uh, sorry, SCOTTISH breakfast. Book accommodations early, as she sells out for most of the season.
Cons:Wifi could be stronger and more reliable.
