Luxury for 4 adults per apartment, privacy for 2 couples, comfort for up to 6 guests (cots and folding beds are available for children) - we're pleased to have been awarded 4 star status by Visit Scotland. The apartments are located in a purpose-built modern building, down a little lane, literally a stone's throw from the Royal Mile. The Wynd itself comes through a tight tunnel at one end, so there is very little passing traffic and it's generally quiet and peaceful.
Blair Angus apartment is on the ground floor with fully level access throughout; Atholl Brae apartment is reached by a short staircase to the first floor.
Each apartment provides a warm, welcoming and comfortable lounge, with a feature "living flame effect" fire and two comfortable leather settees, as well as a TV, DVD/CD player and i-pod dock. Free wi-fi.
The fully fitted kitchens, with dining areas, are off the lounge.
Both bedrooms are accessed from the hallway, as is the main bathroom. All of the beds have high quality,comfortable mattresses. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a fitted wardrobe and an en-suite with a shower, toilet and wash-hand basin.
The second bedroom has twin beds, which may on request be fitted together. Again, there is a fitted wardrobe.
The family bathroom has a bath with a shower over as well as a toilet and wash hand basin.
