11 Moray Place bed and breakfast accommodation

11 Moray Place

Part of one of the finest Georgian developments in Edinburgh, Moray Place has twelve fronts surrounding circular private gardens. It was built in the first part of the 1800's as part of Edinburgh's New Town. Number 11 faces south west and is the home of Florence and Jim Shanks who welcome guests to stay for bed and breakfast in this spacious family house.

Guests may borrow the key for Lord Moray's Pleasure Garden (17 acres of garden overlooking the Water of Leith). There is a delightful 20 minute walk through these Gardens along the river and on through Dean Village to the Gallery of Modern Art.

Florence is very knowledgeable about Edinburgh and is happy help guests with general orientation and ideas about what to see where to go, and Jim is excellent on Scottish history. They both speak French. Moray Place is only a short walk to Princes Street and the shops, The Castle, museums and galleries, restaurants.
