We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Highfield House in Kirknewton in June. It is a brief walk to the train station so it is convenient for taking the short ride into Edinbough. The accommodations are comfortable and the surroundings are lovely. Hostess Jill prepared delicious and hearty breakfasts which were served in a roomy and historic dining room. She and her husband were very gracious and very helpful in answering questions about travel and even providing various schedules. We highly recommend Highfield House for a delightful and reasonably priced stay while in Scotland.

We arrived in the afternoon but no one was home. After two land line phone calls and two mobile phone calls (at this stage it was 5pm) - none of which were returned we sought other accomodation.

I stayed at Highfield house for two weeks during some work in Edinburgh and I found the whole experience very enjoyable. The house is lovely and there is lots of parking, and with the train station close by and the A71 going straight into Edinburgh the location is ideal. I would have liked to have stayed longer!

We had made a direct booking over the internet. Arrived early in the day to an empty house, went sightseeing and came back expecting someone to be home but alas no, no one was to be found.

Suggest if you are brave enough to continue with a booking you confirm several times to ensure that someone is there to greet you.

Found a very friendly establishment down the road "Glenalmond B & B" if you want to stay in this location.

I am sad about these reviews as in neither case was a final confirmed booking completed.. Our guests are most important to us and it is unfortunate that misunderstandings occur. In the previous review, an email offer was made and then the room was booked and confirmed by another guest telephoning. In this review no final confirmation had been made.

We spent our last night, September 22, 2006, at Highfield House in Kirknewton about 10 minutes from EDI airport. We were warmly greeted by Jill and her husband. We were shown to our rooms. The twin room was en suite and the double bed room had a bath across the hall which was not shared with anyone. Jill's husband did his best to help carry the luggage upstairs. The rooms were clean and bright; both Jill and her husband very friendly and helpful. Jill booked us at a pub for dinner and had directions written out. When we arrived back at the house, they had built a fire in the living room and had a table ready for us to play bridge....breakfast was delicious...we all ate well on this holiday! I would highly recommend staying here!

We toured the gardens in the morning..someone puts in a lot of work. They were lovely!
