Boughton Street


Broughton was once a separate village, not part of Edinburgh, with its own long history and also an association with witches and the occult.

Wonderful B&B

Easy journey on tram from Airport and 5-10 minute walk to B&B. Jemima allowed us to leave our luggage so we could go and explore as arrived early.. Easy access to all the sights, lots of choice of restaurant 5 minutes from B&B. Free upgrade to a spotlessly clean room and en-suite. Jemima was the perfect host, amazing breakfast. Wonderful place to use as a base for a visit to Edinburgh.
Thank you.

We absolutely loved our stay at Scott house. Spotlessly clean and beautiful decor in the room. There is a very welcoming dining room and lounge both very comfortable and luxurious. Jemima was a lovely friendly host who told us the history of this beautiful house. The breakfasts were second to none with a full cooked breakfast and a selection of fresh fruit, cereal, toast, etc all laid out on a lovely old sideboard. We stayed on the top floor and the water pressure was excellent and lovely and hot. The location within Edinburgh is great as it is about a 10 minute walk to the Royal Mile from where many of the attractions can be reached. We would not hesitate to stay at this lovely house for a second time.

Perfectly located B&B, with sumptuous breakfasts, spacious rooms, and accommodating owners.

Scott House, run by the friendly, helpful owner Jemima, is a gem of a B&B, located within easy walking distance of everything — New Town, Old Town, the train station, and the bus station. It is a direct, easy, inexpensive tram ride to the airport. Terrific restaurants are right around the corner. The B&B itself is a beautifully restored mansion, with spacious, high-ceiling bedrooms, wonderfully comfortable beds, and large, modern bathrooms, as well as an inviting common living room with a piano and other musical instruments. The breakfasts were superb and bountiful, prepared by Jemima’s husband, a trained chef. Coffee, tea, and cookies were provided in the rooms every day. Scott House was among the highlights of my absolutely delightful stay in Scotland and I cannot wait to return.

Stayed 2nights for tattoo couldn’t have stayed at a better place clean friendly and the best breakfast you could ask for wouldn’t hesitate to recommended to anybody close to local bars and restaurants but still quiet at night in comfortable bed

Available for Private Hire

We stayed at Scott House for two nights on our anniversary trip. We booked the four poster bedroom which was just beautiful! The bed was comfortable and all the furnishings are just lovely. Jemima is a very friendly hostess and offered good advice for things to see in the city. The location is within waking distance of the Royal Mile and all that area has to offer. Breakfast each morning was cooked to order and there were also a large amount of cold items to choose from. Highly recommend this beautiful place!!
