Quartermile Apartment is located in an iconic development (by Foster & Partners) situated next to the open spaces of the Meadows and yet is only a quarter of a mile from Edinburgh Castle and even closer to many must see Edinburgh attractions.

Edinburgh is located in the central belt of Scotland and enjoys a temperate climate in the summer and cool, crisp weather in winter. Whatever the weather however, Edinburgh is easily accessible on foot and often a visitor can be rewarded with a breathtaking vista of the city from one of the many hills around the centre.

Edinburgh dates back to the 5th century when the picts first built a fort on top of the (now extinct) volcanic crag that houses the world famous Edinburgh Castle.

Architecturally the city is a gem, with sweeping Georgian terraces in the new town contrasting with the crowded tenaments of the old town and this is also reflected in the rich history that makes Edinburgh what it is today.

Edinburgh really is a year round city offering you superb sightseeing, historic buildings to explore, quiet galleries and museums to intrigue you and a vast choice of excellent Restaurants, Bistros, Wine Bars, Pubs and Cafes, and night-life to suit all tastes. At nearby Leith you can also enjoy the splendour of the Royal Yacht Britannia which is permanently moored there making for a fascinating experience.

Aside from its varied and stunning Architecture, Edinburgh is a visually beautiful place, with many parks and gardens to enjoy a leisurely stroll through, or to simply sit and watch the world go by. For those who enjoy gardens you are in for a treat! Edinburgh is the home of the world famous Royal Botanic Garden, which you will not want to miss.

Shopping in Edinburgh is a delight; there is everything on offer here. Edinburgh is home to the world's oldest independent department store, a shopping experience not to be missed. Designer Fashion, Boutiques, Antiques, Tartan Tammies, whatever takes your fancy you really will be spoiled for choice.
