What makes Blacket Garden Flat so Darn Good? Quite simply, the innkeepers make this place so darn good! Isobel and James are exceptionally accommodating, thoughtful, and helpful.

Location: Blacket Garden Flat is located in a quiet neighborhood, just ten minutes by bus to the Royal Mile, the heart of Old Town Edinburgh and home to many historical attractions. The walk to city center is enjoyable, with plenty of places to eat, shop, and explore along the way. A few blocks from the flat is Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh’s highest point and a popular place to hike for sweeping views of the city below.

Rooms: The Flat has two rooms, large and very large! The furnishings are warm and homey, and the bed is very comfortable. We loved the little extras, like the CD player and CD’s, books, refrigerator with fresh milk and juices, and pot to heat up coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. We stayed for a week, so we truly appreciated the good sized armoire and drawers for storage.

Food: Breakfast is fantastic! Guests can choose from a small, but fabulous, menu that includes traditional Scottish fare such as smoked salmon, haggis, potato hash, fried mushrooms, and grilled tomatoes. Yoghurt, fruit, pastries, juice and hot drinks round out the meal.

Vibe: Homey and relaxing.

Things to Keep in Mind: Scotland can get a good amount of rain, so remember your raincoat!
