Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed

Traditional one bedroom apartment (with additional sofa-bed in lounge) located in just the most central location, a stone's throw away from the world famous Edinburgh Castle. Great views back to the Castle from the balcony. My photo's do not do it justice (the bedroom and lounge are much bigger, it's just the main bed and sofa are set back into narrower alcoves in the rooms).

The property is perfectly positioned to access all that Edinburgh has to offer throughout the summer festivals. Right next to Grassmarket, a thriving hub of festival activity offering pubs/shops/restaurant, along with numerous free street performances during the festival. Only 5 mins walk to the Usher Hall/Lyceum Theatre and numerous other festival venues. 5 mins walk in the other direction brings you up Victoria Street, which is filled with boutique shops and restaurants, to the Royal Mile.

The apartment is clean, comfortable, has plenty of storage/hanging space, and is spacious for a one bed apartment. Apologies - unfortunately my internal photo's are rubbish as the property has a longer term tenant in just now and I had to get in quickly to take them, with the tenant's belongings around. It will be thoroughly cleared out, spruced up, and cleaned before summer lettings begin! This really is a great base to access all Edinburgh has to offer.

Linen and towels are included in the price, along with pre and post stay cleaning. We also provide books and a few CD's to entertain you during your stay.

2 night stay permitted for 8-9th Aug. Otherwise we have a minimum stay policy.

The Lothians region

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is historic and cultured city, whose setting is wonderfully striking; perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags. If you're looking for a broad mixture of great things to see and do, Edinburgh is the place to be. Admire stunning scenery, striking architecture, fine food, and first-class attractions.

Edinburgh Castle dominates the city-centre skyline and is the focus throughout August for the nightly 'Military Tattoo' and the Virgin Money End of Festival fireworks display (31st Aug). From its ramparts you can look down on medieval lanes and elegant, sweeping terraces that hold over a thousand years of history, mystery and tradition. Yet you will also see a modern capital where, galleries display cutting-edge art, and bars, restaurants and clubs create a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a distinctly Scottish twist.

Edinburgh is home over the summer to numerous arts/music/comedy and film festivals, and provides a magical backdrop for a city break. The Fringe festival is among the biggest comedy festivals in the world and offers hundreds of performances and free street shows.
