The Edinburgh region

Leith has undergone a transformation over the last few years, with many new developments alongside traditional buildings. There is an excellent bus service to and from Leith, with buses running throughout the night, and a bus stop a few yars away from the flat.


The Water of Leith runs alongside the flat. During the Summer, you can take breaksfast on the balcony, and admire the wildlife enjoying the water. For the more energetic, a pleasant stroll ( approx 45 minutes ) along the Water of Leith will take you into Edinburgh. The Water of Leith is now home to many birds, and even the odd otter! Ocean terminal, where this is a large shopping centre and cinema, is a five minute drive away. This is where the Royal Yacht Britannia is now berthed - an absolute must to visit! At the end of your tour, you can take afternoon tea in one of the dinig rooms - just like royalty!
