Welcome to Edinburgh, the inspiring capital of Scotland, where centuries of history meet a vibrant, cosmopolitan city in an unforgettable setting. Discover stunning scenery, striking architecture and fine food, and beautiful coast and countryside in the nearby Lothians. From the world's festival capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site to world-class visitor attractions and exhilarating outdoor pursuits, Edinburgh & The Lothians is a must-visit on anyone's list.
Edinburgh is a hive of cultural activity, and nowhere is this better seen than in the city's festivals. With performing arts, music, drama, exhibitions, films, comedy and talks, the outpouring of creativity during Edinburgh's festivals is second to none. With everything from Highland games to fascinating local events, there is lots going on across the Lothians too.
Stockbridge has a definite Bohemian vibe and many artists, musicians, poets, writers and thespians have made the area their home. Over the years famous residents have included, portrait artist Sir Henry Raeburn, poet James Hogg, surgeon Sir James Young Simpson and more recently actor Norman Lovett and the lead singer of the band 'Garbage', Shirley Manson.
The original Mrs Doubtfire or "Madame Doubtfire" lived and ran a rag and bone shop in South East Circus Place, Stockbridge. The novelist Anne Fine who also lived in the area was inspired by the name which remained faded above her shop (now a solicitors) many years after Madame Doubtfire's death. Her novel of the same name was in turn the inspiration for the movie based on her book, although Robin William's character bares little resemblence to the 'real' Madame Doubtfire.
Stockbridge is home to a wealth independent amenities, including artisan bakeries, butchers, cheesemongers and coffee shops. All these goodies can be sampled along the high street or at the Stockbridge Market which runs all day on a Sunday and is located directly opposite the apartment.
For those interested in vintage clothing, Stockbridge's charity shops are well known in Edinburgh as offering some of the best high quality vintage clothing in the city. Amongst the vast quantities of clothing, you might just spot a real designer gem!
The nightlife options in Stockbridge are vast, with both Michelin star and budget restaurants on your doorstep. Again, there is an assortment of different bars, everything from a huge range of local whiskies at the The Stockbridge Tap to scrummy cocktails at Hamiltons.
