The Lothians region

Edinburgh is renowned as one of Europe's most interesting and vibrant capitals. It is a very walkable city with most of the sites/galleries/museums being relatively close to each other. If you come during August the biggest arts festival in the world will be taking place all over the city providing 24 hour entertainment. There are also many places of interest which you can easily visit on a day trip such as St. Andrews, Glasgow, Perthshire and the borders.

Leith has become a vibrant district with many eating places, cosy pubs and Ocean Terminal with it's shops, cinema and the Royal Yacht. Indeed there are 3 Michelin starred restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the apartment one of which is directly opposite.


Places of interest include the Castle, Holyrood, Scottish Parliament, Royal Yacht, several galleries and museums, shops etc.

There are scores of restaurants, cafes, incredibly atmospheric pubs, shops such as Harvey Nicols and relaxing open spaces such as Holyrood Park with it's panoramic views over Edinburgh and beyond.

"Quiet retreat close to the action"

Leith is a 10 minute bus ride to city center of Edinburgh (or a 2 mile walk) but is a world apart. The apartment overlooks the river Leith with a balcony to enjoy the view after a hectic day of sight… More

"Perfect accomodation in Leith"

The accomodation has been well thought through and met all our needs. Parking at the door, lift to the apartment, well equipped and spotless. There are a plethora of good eating and drinking venues on the doorstep plus numerous regular buses to the centre of Edinburgh. It would be difficult to top it unless you wanted to be right in the heart of the city.

"Beautiful, comfortable Leith flat with lots to offer"

A beautiful flat located no more than 10 minutes from the city center by bus—and an easy bus ride to the airport, as well. Highly recommended. Comfortable couch and bed, two bathrooms, and the deck … More

"Fabulous Apartment, Fabulous Location"

The apartment was everything that we had hoped for plus more. It was like staying in a hotel, but with all the benefits of a home.
The bedding, towels, all of the kitchen equipment plus fabulous deck were all top class with all the rooms in excellent condition.
Could not find any faults!
The situation was great, being close to the city, without actually being in it.
It was great after a hectic days sightseeing, to be able to come back to the apartment and relax, pop over to the pub across the canal and have a bite to eat & a pint! Then a short stroll back...then to sit on the deck and watch the world go by morning and evening, was a great way to relax.
The bus was a few minutes walk across from the apartment, with a trip taking about 10 mins or so into the heart of Edinburgh, Fantastic!
The Indian Restaurant across the canal and the Italian Restaurant on the corner- fantastic food, would recommend to anyone!
The owners were very helpful, and we could only say, the next time we are in Scotland, we will certainly be staying here again.

"Very good apartment in excellent location"

Very good apartment. Clean with all necessary amenities. Great location for restaurants and bars within The Shore at Leith. Transport into Edinburgh easy with bus stops within very short walk of apartment.
Short walk to Sainsbury's store for your necessities.

Minor points for improvement...shower head in en suite needs fixed, window blind in en suite needs fixed and being such a modern flat a more up to date television would improve the look further.

Will recommend to friends and will use again.
