We are a retired couple who left our home countries nearly 50 years ago. Scott is the author of a number of non-fiction books, and Naoko a conservator of works of art on paper who has worked in Turkey, Nepal and Malaysia. Nowadays, we are usually tending our small organic farm in the foothills of the Himalayas or watching the rice grow outside of Ubud in Bali, but Edinburgh—where our extended family lives—is our home in the West.
Overlooked by the castle, and just up the street from Grassmarket, 313 Webster’s Land is about as central as you can get with almost everything within walking distance. If you want to go further afield, there are convenient buses going in all directions nearby. We hope that you will enjoy the unique culture of Edinburgh from its historical heart.
This is our home when we are in Edinburgh, so please treat it as you would your own. Some of Edinburgh’s best pubs and clubs are only a short walk away, so we would appreciate you confining any partying to there.
