Return to Accommodation Index Page

People who travel to Edinburgh and stay away from home for more than a day need an Edinburgh accommodation provider, primarily for sleeping. They do that in Edinburgh bed and breakfasts, Edinburgh guest houses, Edinburgh self-catering apartments, Edinburgh hotels and Edinburgh hostels. Other purposes are comfort, relaxation, being able to take a bath or shower, and a place to safely store luggage.

The meaning of bed and breakfast, also referred to as a B&B.

Edinburgh bed and breakfasts are typically operated out of a large Edinburgh single family residence where guests can be accommodated at night in private bedrooms (which may or may not be equipped with private baths) and where breakfast is a meal, often light, usually taken in the morning. The name originates from the concept that you have not eaten whilst sleeping, i.e., you are fasting during that time, and break that fast with the meal. In other European countries the breakfast would be referred to as - French déjeuner or petit déjeuner, Spanish desayuno, German Frühstück etc.

In Edinburgh (and in fact the whole of Great Britain) the Continental Breakfast is a light meal usually consisting of coffee (or tea) and croissants and sometimes cold meat or fruit rather than the full English. A full English breakfast, also Scottish, Welsh and Irish breakfast, or traditional fry-up, is the traditional breakfast dish of the United Kingdom (Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, England) and Ireland. At its heart the British breakfast consists of fried bacon and fried eggs but to earn the title of "full English", a number of other ingredients would be expected. In Edinburgh hotels, Edinburgh bed and breakfast and Edinburgh guest house establishments the term "full English breakfast" is used to differentiate between the larger multiple course breakfast that may include a cereal or smoked kippers from the simpler "continental breakfast" of coffee (or tea) and croissants. Unique to Scotland, the full breakfast often includes a portion of Scottish haggis and sometimes black pudding (a type of sausage made with various ingredients, including meal and spices).

The bed and breakfast business may be operated either as a primary occupation or as a secondary source of income, and the staff often consists of the house's owners and members of their family who live in Edinburgh.

For anyone not familiar with the layout of Edinburgh, here is a listing of each Edinburgh Bed and Breakfast by area in Edinburgh...

Corstorphine: Craigievar Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh

A brief history of Edinburgh's Corstorphine Village -

Edinburgh's Corstorphine today is a prosperous suburb of Edinburgh to the west of Edinburgh city centre, astride the main Edinburgh-Glasgow road. Generally referred to by the Edinburgh media as "leafy Corstorphine" because of the abundance of trees and green spaces, it is a desirable place to live, especially for bringing up families. Good Edinburgh schools and leisure facilities are abundant. Edinburgh's Queen Margaret University College is on an elevated site on Corstorphine Hill, and the Pentland Hills and attractions of Edinburgh city centre are within easy reach.
Place-name enthusiasts argue endlessly about the origins of the name "Corstorphine", it could simply be the "Cross of Torphin". Although it has always been on the periphery of historical events, Corstorphine has a pedigree of its own, as from the time nearly 2000 years ago when it was probably a collection of huts giving shelter to Roman soldiers marching from Tremontium (Melrose in the south of Scotland) to their fort at Edinburgh's Cramond on the North side of the Corstorphine Hill, beside the River Forth.
Oliver Cromwell's army and Prince Charles Edward Stewart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie") briefly passed through the village; and Edinburgh born author Robert Louis Stevenson, when about ten years old, visited the Old Parish. Stevenson later chose a well-known viewpoint overlooking Edinburgh from Corstorphine Hill as the place where David Balfour and Alan Breck said their farewells in his famous Scottish novel "Kidnapped".

Musselburgh: Eildon Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh

A brief history of Edinburgh's Musselburgh -

Musselburgh's name originates from the mussel beds which can be found at the mouth of the River Esk to this day. Mussels from here were carried into Edinburgh in Victorian times in mussel creels by the womenfolk of the town who would sell this popular seafood dish, usually outside Edinburgh pubs.
Musselburgh links Edinburgh with East Lothian, yet remains a town with its own unique history and identity. One of the oldest golf courses can be found here in Musselburgh, and you can enjoy a round of golf on a course that Mary Queen of Scots once played on. If you are into "the sport of kings" you can enjoy a day out at Scotland's oldest racecourse, Musselburgh Racecourse, which was founded in 1816. As you can see, Musselburgh has strong historic links with both golf and horse-racing.
The town centre has an interesting mix of businesses ranging from the famous (with Edinburgh and Musselburgh local people) Luca's Ice Cream to one of the best fish and chip shops in the Edinburgh area. Loretto School is located adjacent to the Musselburgh race course, and is Scotland's oldest independent boarding school. Set in spacious, leafy grounds Loretto's provides an all-round education for 420 boys and girls, boarders and day pupils, aged 3-18. The school has a quaint name for the children from 3-12 years old as they are known as "The Nippers".
Like much of East Lothian, Musselburgh has a history that dates back to pre-Roman times and a heritage that continues to the present day. Musselburgh's proximity to Edinburgh makes it an ideal base from which to explore both East Lothian, Edinburgh, and beyond.

A brief history of Edinburgh's Newington -

Newington was the first 'garden suburb' in Edinburgh. When Edinburgh's 'Old Town' along the Royal Mile and within the old city walls became seriously overcrowded, there were two directions for the expansion of Edinburgh during the 18th century - to the North in the "Edinburgh New Town' and to the South in Edinburgh's George Square and surroundings.
Developments in Newington ('new town meadow') were made possible once the Borough Muir (South of the South Loch, now the Meadows) was cleared following a 1508 Royal Charter from James IV to the Edinburgh Town Council. Little new development followed until Edinburgh's South Bridge, completed 1788, offered better access. The Newington estate was acquired in August 1805 by Dr Benjamin Bell who built Newington House (since demolished by The University of Edinburgh) in what is now Newington's Blacket Place. The remainder of the now Newington Blacket Conservation Area was offered to Edinburgh builders from 1808.
Newington is referred to by Edinburgh locals as the Southside, and has easy access to Edinburgh city centre. Newington is also ideally placed as a base for exploring both Edinburgh and the whole of the Lothian region, with excellent transport links to the nearby Pentland Hills.

New Town: 26A Abercromby Place, Edinburgh / Abercromby House Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh / A Georgian Residence, Edinburgh / Nelson Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh / 27a Royal Terrace Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh

A brief history of Edinburgh's New Town -

Responding to multiple problems, in an act of outstanding vision, the Town Council of Edinburgh, under the leadership of Edinburgh Provost George Drummond, announced an architectural competition to design a New Town for Edinburgh. First proposed in 1752, the intention was to create a new and spacious cityscape for Edinburgh of wide, symmetrical street, terraced town-houses, specialised shopping facilities and open squares and gardens on a separate green-field site immediately to the north.
The Edinburgh Old and Edinburgh New Towns were separated by a body of water known by the Edinburgh locals as the 'Nor Loch'. This was crossed by the construction of an artificial 'Mound' - using the excavated earth from the basements of the Edinburgh New Town new buildings - and was eventually drained to create Edinburgh's Princes Street Gardens.
The Edinburgh New Town project was designed to house the wealthy, and to attract back to Edinburgh the absentee noblemen who now lived in London. These people, it was hoped, would spend their money in Edinburgh and bring much-needed prestige and prosperity to the capital city of Edinburgh.
It was a patriotic project, with the names of the Edinburgh streets and the Edinburgh squares chosen to celebrate the Union of Scotland and England, and the Hanoverian monarchy, as well as the culture of Scotland. It was also designed to reflect the new aspirations of the people, as Scotland, and Edinburgh in particular - followed the blue-print described by Adam Smith in his Wealth of Nations - sought to enter the modern market age. Built in several stages from the 1760s to the 1830s, the New Town of Edinburgh was the largest planned city development in the world at that time, and it proved an outstanding success in bringing commercial and cultural dynamism to Edinburgh.
The demand for luxury products to furnish the new Edinburgh houses supported a range of fine shops on Edinburgh's Princes Street. Carriage-makers flourished since the broad, straight streets were now able to support a more sophisticated wheeled traffic than was ever possible in the Old Town of Edinburgh.
The Carron Iron Company near Falkirk - the largest business in Scotland - produced an array of fancy domestic iron wares for the Edinburgh New Town, including cast iron grates to designs by Edinburgh's famous architect Robert Adam. All of these developments generated a significant surge in well-paid working class employment. There was a parallel demand for professional people, many of whom lived in the Edinburgh New Town.

Old Town: Royal Mile Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh

A brief history of Edinburgh's Old Town -

It was both prosperity in Edinburgh during the 1700's, combined with wealth consequent to considerable political power then enjoyed by Scots in Parliament in London that led to an explosion of new building in Edinburgh. At that time the Old Town of Edinburgh was overcrowded, noisy and dirty. Visitors said they could smell Edinburgh as they approached Dalkieth some 8 miles to the South. Lack of proper drainage and generally unsanitary conditions in Edinburgh caused ill-health. It is no wonder that plans were made to build a new Edinburgh extension, and the site that was chosen was just to the North on a long low ridge of land running from East to West of Edinburgh. Edinburgh’s Lord Provost Drummond led the initiative. In 1752 Proposals were published outlining his plans for Edinburgh. A year later an Act of Parliament ratified the proposals, and by 1759 the initial project of draining the North Loch (now the site of the Waverley Rail Station in Edinburgh) was begun.

Pilrig: Fraoch House Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh

A brief history of Edinburgh's Pilrig -

Pilrig is a north-eastern suburb of Edinburgh, and is located 1 mile from Edinburgh's city centre. Pilrig has one of Edinburgh's famous nineteenth century 'colonies' of artisans' housing, built in 1880. These terraces of 'one-up, one-down' Edinburgh houses were intended to provide well built, affordable housing for a class of skilled Edinburgh labourers largely excluded from buying property; and mortgage style loans were arranged for them. Earliest prices were around £130 to £250!
Building of the earliest Edinburgh terrace colonies began in 1861. Unlike earlier colonies these colonies have internal, not external, stone staircases leading to the upper dwelling, and the second storey, with dormer windows front and rear, was part of the original design of these Edinburgh buildings - of course, Edinburgh, and Pilrig in particular, has Victorian, Edwardian, and Georgian houses.
The common practice in Edinburgh was to give a name to a single terrace, not the path or road between terraces. The house numbering system in Edinburgh still causes some confusion, with doors for upper and lower colonies being on alternately opposite sides. Pilrig is one of the areas of Edinburgh which houses venues for the world famous and hugely popular Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August, which runs concurrent to, and which overlaps, the Edinburgh International Festival, which is the largest arts celebration in the world.
