The guest house is family run, offering high quality bed and breakfast guest accommodation. Your hosts are Jimmy and Fiona, who will be delighted to welcome you into their home and look after you during your stay.
This beautiful, detached Victorian house has been sympathetically restored and retains many original features. Located in the historic Scottish capital city of Edinburgh, it is just over a mile from the main tourist attractions, such as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.
We look forward to hearing from you, and to welcoming you to Glenalmond House and Edinburgh. Jimmy and Fiona
