Our B&B

Welcome to McCrae's B & B. Our aim on this web site is to let you know where we are in Edinburgh, give you an idea of our facilities, help you plan your visit to Edinburgh and to Scotland in general, and finally, and most importantly to let you know how you can contact us to make an enquiry or a booking.

McCrae's is situated in the Victorian part of Edinburgh's New Town. We are close to the city centre, only 10-15 minutes walk from Princes Street, Waverley railway station and the main bus station (see map). A taxi from the city centre costs just under 5. The airport is 6 miles from the heart from Edinburgh and you can travel from there to the centre by bus (about 3.50 per person) and then catch a taxi, or get a taxi straight from the airport (which costs about 22.00). City buses pass close by and take you to the centre or to the Royal Mile (the main tourist area) in less than 5 minutes at a cost of 80p per person.
McCrae's is a main door apartment in a block which is about 130 years old. Many of the original features are retained in the 3 double/twin rooms which are available to let. All rooms are at ground level. The rooms have their own private bathrooms en-suite as well as Central Heating, colour TV, radio/alarm, hair dryer and tea/coffee trays. You can get an idea of what the rooms and their facilities are like by clicking on our photographs. A full cooked Scottish breakfast is served in the dining room downstairs (photograph available). For guests with disabilities who cannot manage the stairs, breakfast can be served in the room by arrangement. A vegetarian breakfast is available on request. Parking is 'on-street' directly outside. We are now in the outer control zone for parking. Parking must be paid for 0830-1730 Mon-Fri. Cost is 70p for 90 min or 4.20 per day (using permits available on request).

Our prices range from 24.50 per person per night sharing, and 27.50 per person per night for single occupation. Reductions are available for longer stays. We accept payment by cash, sterling cheque, sterling travellers cheque or credit card (Mastercard, Visa, Delta, Eurocard or JBC). For bills paid by credit card, a handling charge of 1.00 per room per night is added.

We look forward to hearing from you.
