The Lothians region

Edinburgh is a beautiful and fascinating city; nicknamed "Athens of the North" and deservedly so. Edinburgh is unique in that it has two complete mountains in its centre and beautiful gardens in the main street. Flanked by the Forth Estuary to the North and the Pentland Hills on the South, the views are spectacular all around. There is much to see and do, from shop 'til you drop to walking hills so remote that you can believe you are in the Highlands.

Within Edinburgh there are historical "closes" and even an underground street, as well as museums, galleries, parks, theatre, cinemas and a multitude of places to dine from a porridge in the farmers market to cuisine from almost every nationality in the world. Edinburgh Castle is a must for every tourist and the flat is right across the street!

The flat is in the The Grassmarket which is an area steeped in history and has long been a place of entertainment from medieval times to the present day.

Edinburgh, being a port, also has many beaches and there is plenty of public transport to take you there. There are day trips available if you fancy exploring further afield to other cities, towns, lochs or the remote and beautiful Highlands.

"Fabulously located flat. Immaculate and well equipped."

The flat is in an ideal, central location for sightseeing all of Edinburgh! It is exactly as described; very comfortable, immaculate and well decorated. Deborah gave us great directions and information before we arrived and left a great welcome pack which was very handy. It is close to Sainsbury's for any provisions you may want if self catering, but there are so many charming pubs etc on your doorstep you may decide not to! The flat is very well eqiuipped and it had all and more that we needed.
I would definately recommend this and would definately stay there again.

Thank you! Hope to see you back soon!

"Fabulous Stay!"

We were thrilled when we arrived at this really cosy accommodation. It's location is perfect - very close to Grassmarket and the centre of Edinburgh - ideal for exploring the old town. The weather was very cold, but the apartment was really warm! Very comfortable furnishings, very well equipped and everywhere was extremely clean. Many excellent pubs, cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance. Thank you for providing us with such a lovely weekend break - we'll definitely return!

Thank you! I'm glad you had a great weekend!
