It's also just a five minute walk to the nearest private gym and pool (Bannantynes) or ten minutes to to the nearest Virgin Gym in The Omni Shopping Centre.

The central location also provides very easy walking to all major Edinburgh Festival attractions and venues e.g. just 5 mins walk to The Edinburgh International Book Festival site, and has unprecedented views of the closing fireworks festival concert from Edinburgh Castle. The Edinburgh International Festival literally goes out each year with the most spectacular of bangs (45 mins), accompanied live from Princes Street Gardens -just across the road by The Scottish Chamber Orchestra (which can be heard live and aplified via live radio). Resulting in the most perfect venue for a special occasion or private party. This year in 2012 the firworks closing party is on the 3rd September, check the callender for avaiulability (at time of update mid-June) the week was still available!

The apartment has been thoughtfully renovated to the highest standard and although the building is of historic significance,one of the first to be erected by the architect of Edinburgh' s New Town in 1790 by James Craig, the decor is cool and contemporary, combining historic art work with extremely elegant furnishings and drapes.

The apartment consists of: large elegant lounge with two large windows, contemporary furnishings and decor with two comfortable sofas and a marble dining table and chairs for six with matching marble counsil table and coffee table. There is a large Sony flat screen TV with full Sky channel access, Apple TV and free high speed wifii throughout.

Two bedrooms - one master, with extremely comfortable super-king size divan, with stunning castle views from the bed!. One single bedroom, but just large enough for two, with a single bed that pulls out to create a separate single (Trundle bed).

Fully fitted contemporary, luxury kitchen, equipped to a gourmet standard. Large, family athroom with everything you would expect of a 5 star property - with lime stone throughout, double bath and steam shower, under-floor heating and limestone wet-room and steam shower.

The property is located on the second floor, just high enough to provide excellent views. The stairs are more winding than steep. The typical noise levels associated with city centre living, have been much reduced by tasteful secondary glazing throughout.

There is on street metered parking available or alternatively secure 7x24 parking is located just ten minutes walk away, or a new much cheaper service is located just 10 mins by car (ask for details). A full housekeeping service is also available on request.

The Edinburgh region

Edinburgh is surrounded by a plethora of options for day trips to St Andrews, Glasgow, The Scottish Borders etc and serves as a great base for longer outings to The Scottish Highlands and The West Coast.

It's a perfect place to visit if your interested in history, culture and art and of course is well served by its close proximity to some of the best golfing in the world.

The most beautiful unspoilt beaches can also be accessed either by car approx 30 mins or by train to North Berwick approx 25 mins.

New Town

The Edinburgh International Festival is the largest festival of its kind in the world! From "fringe theatre" by new and experimental companies and comedy, to the world's best from International companies in opera, dance and theatre. The Edinburgh Military Tatoo, staged within the shadow of Edinburgh Castle also attracts a universal audience and is booked up well in advance. The population of Edinburgh effectively trebles throughout the month of August and it's strongly recommended to book well in advance.
