Prince Albert once rightly compared the sweeping landscapes of his German homeland with the surreality of Scotland – which is mainly why he purchased Balmoral Castle for his wife Queen Victoria in 1852.
With this being said, it’s no wonder Felicitas feels so at home in Edinburgh, where she’s lived with her husband John for many years. Together they own the renowned Stevenson House B&B in the city’s New Town area, which was actually the childhood home of Robert Louis Stevenson; the author behind such classics as Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and Jekyll and Hyde. He lived in the house for 24 years; it’s a place he very much called home.
It’s a good job that Felicitas really loves history, as she lives it every day. When hosting guests, Felicitas enjoys throwing her fabled dinner parties, using ingredients grown in her own garden. And if you’re French, German or English, the conversation will flow like wine, as she’s fluent in all those languages.
Felicitas knows there’s nothing quite like Scottish hospitality, and she can’t wait to introduce you to her beloved Edinburgh and its legends!
