The Lothians region
The Old Town of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is the medieval part of the city. Together with the 18th-century New Town, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has preserved its medieval plan and many Reformation-era buildings. One end is closed by Edinburgh Castle and the main artery, the Royal Mile, leads away from it, down to Holyrood Palace and the ruined Holyrood Abbey. Narrow closes (alleyways), often no more than a few feet wide, lead downhill on either side of the main spine in a herringbone pattern. Other notable places include the Scottish Parliament Building, the General Assembly Hall of the Church of Scotland, the Royal Museum of Scotland, Surgeons' Hall, the University of Edinburgh, and numerous underground streets and vaults.
The flat overlooks Greyfriar's Kirkyard which is the graveyard for many famous Scots including George Heriot founder of the school next door to Greyfriar's, James Craig, designer of Edinburgh's New Town, and most notably Greyfriar's Bobby the loyal Skye Terrier who kept a 14 year vigil on his masters grave, both dog and his master, John Gray are bured here.
The Old Town is dominated by Edinburgh Castle which can be seen from the flat. The area has many cultural attractions and is home to many theatres, galleries and parks. The flat is near to the Meadows only 2 mins walk away. There is the Museum of Scotland just over the road which is both educational and entertaining.

"Great Little Flat, Superb Location, Lovely View"
Loved the flat... just the right size for 1 or 2 people. I am convinced that the 83 steps (which we navigated a record 6 times up and 6 times down on one of the days) was the reason I didn't gai… More

We loved this apartment tucked away in the heart of the old town. The stairs are the only negative for this well equipped flat but well worth it for the views when you get to the top. Lots of restaur… More
