There are six and three quarter rooms in boutique bed-and-breakfast 94DR —that's 94 Dalkeith Road. The Wee Dram is perfect for children if families check into Tamdhu (bunk beds, books, games, DVDs, Xbox, and a connecting door). The other six luxurious rooms, in this Victorian townhouse in the Blackett Conservation Area, are divided into named after whiskies and divided into Couture (Bowmore and Caol Ila), Bespoke (Lagavulin and Tamdhu) and Tailored (Aberlour and Macallan). As a B&B it's a cut above: Paul Lightfoot and John MacEwan have created a designer haven with a cool gray and white colour scheme accented with bright splashes of color, wools, and tweeds, and strewn with reindeer skins. Bowmore has an over-sized, bespoke, button-backed gray headboard, a cast-iron claw-foot tub, and under-floor heating, with bay windows looking out onto Salisbury Craggs and Arthur's Seat. Rooms at the back have views of the walled garden and Pentland Hills. It's not exactly central, but nowhere in this compact capital is far away. It's just a five-minute walk to Arthur's Seat and a 10-minute bus ride to Princes Street. Paul is also a chef, so breakfast is a particular treat—although if you want a lie-in, a breakfast box can be delivered to your room. They also organize pop-up dining experiences, Under the Table, twice a month.
