The Lothians region

With its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, and winding medieval streets, it’s easy to see why Edinburgh has been listed as a World Heritage Site. Historic Edinburgh provides our guests with the opportunity to experience a wealth of cultural attractions from art galleries, to the impressive choice of theatres and restaurants each giving its own unique experience.

Edinburgh Castle dominates the urban skyline, perched on the crags of an ancient volcano right in the centre of the city, and overlooks Edinburgh’s Old Town, where a walk down the historic narrow wynds and closes is one of the most captivating experiences the city has to offer.


Situated right on the Royal Mile our apartment is right in the heart of the old town and as such is superbly located for all the Historica City of Edinburgh has on offer - with only a 5 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle, Whisky Heritage Centre and the Camera Obscura which are all at the top of the mile. Or take a 10 minute walk to Holyrood Palace, the Museum of Child hood or John Knox House at the other end of the mile.

The Scottish National Portrait Gallery & Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art are only 15 minute walks from our front door.

Why not enjoy a trip into Edinburgh's past by visiting the Real Mary Kings Close which is on the Royal Mile

The Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed in Leith and can be reach by bus or taxi in approximately 10 minutes.

From July to August Edinburgh hosts a variety of festivals including book, comedy, film and infamous fringe festival. Watch the some of street entertainers from our lounge window.

Christmas and Hogmanay see Edinburgh host many winter celebrations with the Ferris Wheel, German & Christmas Markets on Princess Street. Edinburgh's famous Hogmanay celebration's are throughout the city and culminate with fire works launched from the Castle at midnight on the 31st December each year.

"Brilliant flat in a fantastic location."

A wonderful, cosy flat that felt like a home away from home. Came fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owner was very friendly and flexible; our train home was at 5:45pm and he let us stay in the flat right up until we had to leave for the station. The icing on the cake was the brilliant, central location of the flat. Really couldn't find fault with anything.
