You’ll love my place because the neighbourhood is safe and quiet yet conveniently located for walking to the City centre. We are within 10-20mins walk to BT Murrayfield Stadium for rugby fans, the Modern Art galleries for art lovers, the Water of Leith and Dean Village, Corstophine Hill and Edinburgh Zoo. We are 2 mins ride from the start of the Roseburn traffic free cycle path network. My place is good for couples, Edinburgh festival goers, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families.
Aside from the fact that our place is within a few minutes walk to years of Scottish history and culture in the heart of the Old and New Town of Edinburgh, our one celebrity claim to fame is this. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull spent his childhood in our house. Isn't that exciting? Apparently he attended Roseburn primary school where my little boy went to and his mother ran the place as a guest house. That explained the markings of number plates on the bedroom doors which I eventually painted over. When he was in Edinburgh a few years ago, he wondered about knocking on the door to ask to see his childhood home. I wish he did as we would have welcomed him in and given him the traditional cuppa and let him relive his childhood memories with us.
If you are reading this Mr Ian Anderson, you are invited to knock on our door next time you are in Edinburgh.
Guests are welcome to chill out in our drawing room or living room and join us in the kitchen dining room for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat
I have lived in Edinburgh for over 25 years and love the city and have hosted many foreign students and tourist to our city. There are many walks to explore the cultural aspects of Edinburgh or go out of the city to explore the countryside, on foot, on bikes or by car. All possible depending on your preferences. I am most happy to use a map to show you what to do and where to go over a cup of tea and Scottish shortbread.
Expect the worst, bring the right weather gear and you will have the most wonderful time in Scotland.
