THE LOCAL AREA
The area is called Davidson's Mains, we are minute's walk away to friendly pubs serving food, two Indian take away's, a Chinese take away and a Fish & Chip shop. Also in the village there is a Tesco Supermarket, two Banks, a Chemist, two Hairdressers, a Beauticians, a Post Office, a laundromat, a Cafe, three Churches and a large tree enclosed park with kids playpark.
We are neighbours to Lauriston Castle a 16th-century tower house which overlooks the Firth of Forth. There are tours of the Castle at the weekend but the grounds are open daily and free to visit including the Japanese garden and fantastic views to the sea.
You can take lovely sea shore and river walks around to Cramond. Cramond Village and harbour have Roman Ruins and the earliest known site of human settlement in Scotland.
We have private parking on our drive and are on a good bus route. The bus stop is a five minute walk away where you can catch a bus every 10 to 20 minutes to the city centre (a 20 minute bus ride away) or to the airport (a 35 minute bus ride away).
You can get a bus to us from the airport which requires one change of bus.
A taxi is around £15 and takes about 20 minutes.
There is also a cycle path just behind our house to the centre, if you wish to hire bikes.
We have 2 children - fairly well behaved, polite and respectful of guests and we would welcome families with children of any age. Sadly Pepper our Border Terrier passed away late 2013, but I couldn't bear to delete her picture :(

Reviews of this property
During my vacation in Scotland I stayed here for 8 nights. It was my second visit at Juliet and Ian and not my last. Juliet and Ian were very friendly and helpful. I have enjoyed my stay with them and I hope we see us again soon. By the bus are only 15 minutes up to the town. My recommendation is one visit to cramond beach, it is a lovely palce. Greetings to my friend Thistle (dog).
A very pleasant and attentive family to enjoy the city. Very clean room and bathroom.
What I like is to live with a Scottish family being tourists, (when you are a tourist usually do not have that opportunity)
Very nice breakfast in the kitchen watching the garden.
Una familia muy agradable y atentos para que disfrutemos de la ciudad. La habitación y baño muy limpios.
Lo que mas me gusto es poder vivir con una familia escocesa siendo turistas, (cuando eres turista normalmente no tienes esta oportunidad)
Muy agradable el desayuno en la cocina viendo el jardín.
I felt at Juliet and your family well. The room was nicely decorated. The Public Transport sehr gut. Thanks for the fantastic and helpful information. I was for 10 days in Edinburgh. I am happy to be back. Thanks for the nice time.
Ich fühlte mich bei Juliet und Ihrer Familie sehr wohl. Das Zimmer war hübsch eingerichtet. Die Verkehrsanbindung sehr gut. Danke für die fantastischen und hilfreichen Informationen. Ich war für 10 Tage in Edinburgh. Gerne komme ich wieder. Danke für die schöne Zeit.
Juliet´s and Iain´s home was pleasure to stay at, with a very nice and comfortable room, their house very close to an excellent bus route. Juliet and Iain were wonderful hosts, very nice, always ready to help and a pleasure to be around. I would recommend their house to anyone wanting to spend some time in beautiful Edinburgh.
Pleasant room with separate entrance. Juliet and her family were welcoming. Excellent discussions and advice for the rest of my trip.
Plaisante chambre avec entrée séparée. Juliet et sa famille furent accueillants. Excellentes discussions et conseils pour la suite de mon voyage.
I had a great stay with Juliet and the rest of the family. It was the perfect start for my postgraduate degree here as they were very helpful with everything. They received me warmly and the room was just perfect. The bus connection to the city center is fine. I can recommend everybody to stay with this nice family.
The property is exceptionally located in Edinburgh, the bus goes to the city in the immediate neighborhood. Juliet and her family have welcomed us warmly and helped to get tickets to the Military Tattoo. We enjoyed the stay very much.
Die Unterkunft in Edinburgh ist toll gelegen, der Bus zur Innenstadt fährt in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft. Juliet und ihre Familie haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen und geholfen Karten für das Military tattoo zu erhalten. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
I highly recommend Juliet´s house for a stay in Edinburgh! The room was very nice and to have your own bathroom is course great. Juliet was extremly helpful and her family was really nice - so my stay in Edinburgh including a trip to the coast and a trip to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park was great. Hope to get there again!
