Bed and Breakfast, Edinburgh B&B
Joppa Turrets Guest House
Looking for bed and breakfast in Edinburgh? Then Phil and Anne McCrossan welcome you to the Joppa Turrets Guest House Edinburgh.
The house was built in the mid-1800's and is located within the Edinburgh City boundaries. Joppa and Portobello are distinct residential communities and developed as Edinburgh expanded. The area became a popular resort as cheaper travel enabled families to take the sea air. Donkey rides are no more but the peace remains!
We are only 3 miles from the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, and have panoramic views across the Firth of Forth. Buses are frequent during the day and continue into the early hours.
The Guest House offers:
quiet, with no passing traffic
beach front location - a mile of sand beyond our garden wall
4 attractive rooms with en-suite or private facilities
colour TV plus tea, coffee, chocolate drinks in all rooms
unrestricted street parking
Edinburgh City has a well deserved reputation as one of the most exciting capital cities in the world.
Here are just a few of the things you can do in and around Edinburgh:
The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle
The legendary cobbled road between Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle is rich in Scottish history. The city has had a fortress on Castle Rock since the 7th century, and the only way you could have got into the castle in ancient times, would have been to try your luck at climbing the sheer cliffs up to its well-guarded walls.Now, however, you can walk in through the main gates without fear and even view the ancient Scottish Crown Jewels which are also on display.
The former Royal Yacht Britannia
At its final resting place, after one million miles of overseas Royal visits.
In and around Princes Street
Wonderful shops, museums and galleries fill Princes Street. If all of that is too tiring for you, then on one side are the Princes Street Gardens, a 'country walk' in the middle of the City.
Haunted City Tours
If you like a scary experience, then you should try one of the City Ghost tours or visit the newly discovered Vaults beneath the Old Town, where truly spine chilling events took place.
Edinburgh Tattoo and Festival
Massed pipes, drums, kilts at the Edinburgh Tattoo and also every August, the Festival; theatre, opera and ballet for all ages. Also on in August is the equally famous Fringe festival, during which some of the world's best young comedians can be seen.
Hogmanay (New Year.)
Edinburgh is place to celebrate New Year. Four days of events, if you can stand the pace.
The Kingdom of Fife & Glasgow
If you've seen all there is to see in Edinburgh, then the historic Kingdom of Fife is just a just a short drive away. Glasgow, another famous Scottish city can also be visited by train or bus in a day.
Or just relax at the Guest House
If all that sounds too much like hard work, then you can always relax on the beach, or in our lovely walled garden.
