Filthy in Edinburgh
The cruachan guest house is absolutely filthy and needs to be brought up to date. The beds and linens were old and worn out. The interior needs new carpets and paint. I would not recommend anyway staying here.

Fantastic place to stay
It's a lovely small B&B, only a 25 minute walk away from the Royal Mile. The owner a lovely man with lots of knowledge of the area. Can't wait to stay there again when I'm in Edinburgh.

Awful. The bed was uncomfortable with old pillows, the breakfast was nice one day out of three, the owner was rude and had no interest in his guesthouse. Would not stay again. It was very expensive for a very cheap place!

The owner was not there, so he left the key for us. The room had not been cleaned. There was a vacuum cleaner in the hallway although it looked like it had never been used. Filthy house. This place is not fit for paying guests and should be removed from
