Ae Fond Kiss

This year, because of conservation work at Rosslyn Chapel Nonsenserooms regular venue The Scottish Mining Museum at Newtongrange is hosting the Nonsenseroom productions.

The Scottish Mining Museum has been recently refurbished and boasts a splendid theatre space and modern visitor centre just 5 miles from Edinburgh City Centre and on frequent bus routes.

This year Nonsenseroom are presenting two plays, a swashbuckling one for the whole family, Treasure Island based on the RLS Classic starting at 4pm and running from August 6th to the 29th (not the 8th, 15th or 22nd). This is a fun show and guests are welcome to dress for the part!

Nonsenserooms main play is Ae Fond Kiss the story of Robert Burns written by Simon Beattie. This successful play was sold out when first performed and has been revised for the Homecoming Celebrations of 2009. Running on the same dates as Treasure Island Ay Fond Kiss starts at 7pm.

Tickets are available from 0131 663 7519 or via the website.

The Edinburgh Pass - See More, Save More available through The Edinburgh Address soon!

We have recently come across this fabulous pass and will soon be able to offer it for sale to our guests.

It includes: free entry to over 30 top attractions, free lothian buses travel for each day of the pass, free return airport transfers, special offers for sightseeing tours, restaurants, ceilidhs and much much more.

We are very excited about the recent addition to our portfolio - a fabulous apartment on Gayfield Square!

Not only is in the most perfect location for The Playhouse and within a short walk to the city centre, it is a gorgeous apartment itself. So beautiful that Anne Marie and I were thrilled the day the owners gave us the keys and we could spend time setting it up for photography. We are absolutely sure our guests will enjoy spending time here. It is indeed a special and unique base to spend time while in Edinburgh. It really does tick all the Edinburgh Address boxes! The 2 bedroom (one ensuite) apartment has a spacious sitting room and kitchen. Every aspect of the refurbishment has been done tastefully and with extremely high quality materials and fittings. Light streams into the apartment in every room and to top it off the lighting is by the designer glass maker Adrian Sankey. The contemporary pieces complement and enhance the rooms and are the perfect finish to this superb property.

The photoshoot is next week and we look forward to having the property live within the next two weeks. Please contact us now if you wish to enquire about it as advance bookings are being taken.

We were very busy during the 6 Nations; as well as all the lovely guests we had staying at our flats while supporting their country during the competition... it was fantastic to have some of our own national players; Nathan, Scott and Sean staying at our Young Street apartments. It was a fast 7 weeks and we miss having them and their families about the place!

My partner Sean is an avid cyclist and today I accompanied him to Glentress where there are some fabulous mountain bike trails and walks. While he enjoyed a quick spin round the 'red run' I had a lovely walk with my friend Liz and Bella the dog. One of the best parts was a welcome coffee and homemade cake in the Hub Cafe, where all the cyclists pile in after their runs.

It reminded me of how accessible these facilities are from Edinburgh. Indeed our Newington Urban Living Apartment would be ideal for those guests who wish to stay in Edinburgh and take advantage of the fabulous Borders countryside. Moreover, Newington Urban Living has a bike lock up for guests to store their bikes.

From this apartment is is only a 45 minute drive to Glentress. Bikes can be hired at The Hub.

We are delighted to announce that Ann-Marie Freeman won our Festive Hamper worth 65 GBP As you can see by her comments below, she was delighted with it!


"The hamper arrived today thank you - it is absolutely superb, a wonderful selection of luxury items from specialist suppliers - we will enjoy tucking in! Even the packaging was lovely - a great basket and a reusable cotton bag. Thank you once again", Ann-Marie.

We are always looking for ways to enhance our guest services. Ann-Marie suggested offering a babysitting service and we are investigating whether it would be possible for us to offer this.

We offer guests the chance to purchase a range of hampers at different price points and they are proving to be very popular among our guests.

The Edinburgh Address (Anne Marie and I) are just back from the fantastic ASSC (The Association of Scotland's Self Caterers) conference held at the Aviemore conference centre.


We thoroughly enjoyed it and thought all workshops were informative and interesting. In particular we enjoyed hearing the thoughts of the guest speaker,Iain Herbert, Chief Executive of the Scottish Tourism Forum, and his thoughts on Scottish tourism in general.

We recommend to others involved in self catering to join the ASSC as it is a great source of information and advice. The ASSC conference for example provided us with the chance to meet with other people involved in self catering and to share experiences, network and socialise!

The ASSC believe that self catering provides guests with Freedom, Authenticity, Quality, Independence and Choice - we could not agree more!
