Jill and Bob Knox's Victorian family home in Morningside is set in an especially lovely garden, 10 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh.
Jill teaches English as a foreign language, and Bob used to be a marine lawyer and Honorary Consul for Belgium. They have enjoyed welcoming guests to stay for many years.
There are two bedrooms for bed and breakfast guests, and this is an excellent place to stay if you would like a relaxing haven of civilisation to return to at the end of a day sightseeing or doing business. For the evening, Morningside has good restaurants and a famous pub.
Morningside is on one of the best bus routes in Edinburgh (city centre 10 minutes). However the walk to or from the centre is very enjoyable and takes about 25 minutes. Both Jill and Bob are very knowledgeable about Scottish matters, and where to go and what to do in Edinburgh.

Jill is very sympathetic to special diets.
