The Edinburgh region

The City of Edinburgh offers you an ideal opportunity to experience the mixture of traditional and contemporary lifestyles located within a vibrant and internationally famous city.

From the narrow streets and winding stairways of the historic old city centre to the sweeping Georgian terraced houses in the 'new town', the City offers you the best of architecture.

The hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs offer food, relaxation and refreshments for every conceivable pallet whilst the galleries, exhibitions and festivals ensure that no often how many times you visit the city, there is always more to see.

Experience the 'Dynamic Earth' exhibition describing the fascinating volcanic activity and the formation of 'Arthur's Seat'. Then, only a few metres away is the Scottish Parliament building, the heart of Scottish Government.

Stroll across to the Palace of Holyrood and then up the famous Royal Mile, experiencing the multiple malt whisky opportunities en route, as you head towards Edinburgh Castle.

Participate in a tour of the secret underground streets and Mary King's close, sealed during a plague outbreak in the 17th century.

And of course, there's plenty of time to relax walking through the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens or dining in one of the many Michelin Star restaurants across the City.

Davidsons Mains

Originally a small village, Davidsons Mains and Blackhall now form part of the City of Edinburgh. The area has virtually every conceivable amenity within a few minutes walk of the Annexe including shops, supermarket, bars, chemist and Post Office. In addition you can stroll through the local park and access Corstorphine woods or walk the 3km to the edge of the sea shore.

There are few UK locations offering such a mixture of activities, features, relaxation and entertainment all within a few minutes journey time.

The area is served by a number of bus services and journey time to the city centre by bus is only 15 minutes.

That's right "The Annexe" was out of this world. So relaxing,quiet. It was a beautiful place to stay. We were celebrating my boyfriend's 50yr birthday. So many lovely places to visit and only a bus ride away. Fiona even left us 2 bus tickets to start us of with. So we bought 2 weekly passes and away we went. The best thing we got. The bus service is great. So we went all over. But the best was The Royal Yacht Britannia. The tour, where we had a lovely birthday lunch followed by drinks at the Dome then a meal. We came home relaxed and refreshed. Thank you Fiona we will be back. X

"Excelled our expectations"

A most warm and friendly welcome awaited us, well excelling our expectations; excellent facilities and extra personal touches, including food starter pack, were much appreciated. Very clean, constantly warm and most comfortable. A genuine five star proprerty and very conveniently placed. We have already booked to return.

"Luxurious and relaxing holiday apartment"

The apartment is perfect! All very modern but still very homely. The bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in! We were up for the festival but spent one day just relaxing and enjoying cocktails in the garden. The owner (and her dog!) were really friendly and had thought of everything that we could need for our stay - a welcome pack with details of things to see and do around Edinburgh, bus timetables, Festival Fringe information and breakfast supplies. It took us slightly longer than expected to get into town but I think that was due to diversions in place for the festival. I would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be returning myself.

"Excellent accommodation and location for Edinburgh and surrounding areas"

The Annexe provides excellent and well appointed accommodation for a couple wishing to explore Edinburgh (a 15 min bus journey) and the surrounding areas. We went for the festival and The Annexe provided an excellent base with everything you could want in a 'home from home'. The owner has thought of everything from washing-up liquid (and dishwasher tablets!) to super soft towels. We would recommend The Annexe without hesitation.
