Bed & Breakfast at Cairn, Ravelston Dykes offers a deluxe double bedroom together with private bath & shower room and luxurious guest lounge with satellite HDTV. Sandy and Marie’s house is a stunning 1930’s detached family home with many original art deco features and a beautiful private garden.
We are a couple with two children at university. We love living in Edinburgh and particularly during August when the Edinburgh Festival and Edinburgh Fringe are in full swing. We will be delighted to share our tips and suggestions with our guests on how to get the most out of their trip to Edinburgh.
Our home is located in the beautiful Murrayfield area of Edinburgh. It is in a quiet location and yet only a 20 minute walk to the West End of Edinburgh, 15 minutes walk to Haymarket railway station, 10 minutes to Murrayfield stadium, and 10 minutes walk to two major Edinburgh Art Galleries - the Dean and the Gallery of Modern Art. Edinburgh Zoo is a 15 minute walk in the opposite direction. There is of course an excellent bus service covering the whole of Edinburgh with numerous bus stops close by. The Water of Leith is also very close by as is Corstorphine Hill for beautiful walks. There is free car parking and Wi-Fi throughout the house. Your bedroom has central heating, tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer. Guests will have access to the breakfast room and their own private luxurious sitting room.
