Auld Reekie Guest House
Edinburgh EH9 2BZ
Whether you are visiting here on a business trip or enjoying a holiday in Scotland's Capital, you cannot fail to notice Edinburgh's magnificent architecture which makes it one of Europe's most scenic cities. The Old Town is surrounded by narrow lanes and stairways that run off the Royal Mile and the Castle, making the visitor feel like they are stepping back in time. The New Town's neo-classical grid pattern is an equally stunning contrast, with Princes Street providing the most scenic of shopping boulevards. The new Scottish Parliament building based beside Holyrood Palace has attracted controversy over its design and cost as well as re-launching Edinburgh as a political centre. Edinburgh is also famous for its International Festival held each year which attracts visitors and performers from all over the world. The city has numerous galleries and museums to visit as well as the Royal Yacht Britannia in Leith, Edinburgh Zoo and various theatres. At Hogmanay Edinburgh brings in the New Year with live music, street theatre, dance, art and fireworks, creating one of the best celebrations in the world. The city offers a range of restaurants to choose from. There is a wide selection of international cuisine from French, Italian or Cantonese to tapas from Spain or spicy Indian dishes. We have many restaurants specialising in fine local produce, whether you prefer fresh seafood or game, a vegetarian dish or modern Scottish cuisine, there is something here for everyone.
