Situated just a few metres from Edinburgh Castle this apartment has one of the best views in Edinburgh from the lounge and both bedroom windows. This old town location just a 1 minute walk to the Royal Mile cant really be beaten. The apartment itself was completely redeveloped in 2009 to form a home with all modern conveniences but retaining period features like the cornicing and cast iron ornamental fireplace - it even has a small library room. If you are looking for history, views, and a unique place to stay then this could be the apartment for you.

The apartment has a double bedroom and another bedroom that can be a double or a twin . The lounge has a large corner sofa, dining table, plasma screen and open plan to the kitchen and fantastic castle views. Both bedrooms also look directly onto the castle at the great hall, crown room and gun emplacements. The shower room is finished in travertine stone and the kitchen should have all you need for a self catering stay. You cannot get closer to the castle than this - we are the last block before you reach the castle esplanade. Towels and linen are supplied and utilities are included in the price excluding any long distance or mobile calls made from the apartment.

Further details outdoors

The Lothians region

Surrounded by history and with the best view of Edinburgh Castle this is a great location. The Royal Mile is a 1 minute walk, the grassmarket is a 2 minute walk and Edinburgh Castle is literally a few metres away.


There are too many attractions to list all of them but here are a few that are within easy walking distance - Edinburgh castle, Whisky heritage centre, Camera Obscura, Gladstones Land, Childrens museum, national museum of Scotland, The Hub, Scottish Geneaology centre, Holyrood Palace, Scottish parliament, EICC (conference centre), Princes Street Gardens, National Galleries, Princes Street - you get the idea - everything apart from the Royal Yacht is nearby. Restaurants are in abundance and there are hundreds to choose from and lots of bars too although the apartment itself is in a quiet location.
