Have just come back from an amazing weekend in Edinburgh made all the better by our stay with Wallace Shaw in his beautiful home. Book here if you want a weekend with personality rather than staying in a bland corporate hotel room! Wallace's home is full of art he has collected from all over the world and left us full of inspiration.
Nice touches included a selection of good books to read by the bed, bathrobes and luxury bath products. Wallace is a charming host - a pure gentleman full of interesting stories - and, to top it off , he rose at 5am to serve us breakfast before our early morning flight home to Dublin. Breakfast was delicous and included fresh fruit, croissants straight from the oven, granola, and fresh Italian coffee.
Last but not least, Leith is the perfect base for a weekend stay in Edinburgh - It gives a real flavour of the city rather than just basing yourself in the tourist district. Its a stones throw from the picturesque waterside and in the midst of the city's foodie district with several smashing seafood bars, Michelin star restaurants and gastro pubs close by.
