Castle View Grassmarket flat
About the home
Fabulous rooftop and castle views can be admired from all the windows of this cosy, city centre apartment. Private car parking can be arranged, when available (small additional fee & key deposit required) or there is the NCP car park next door. All city centre attractions are within easy walking distance. All public transport is close by. The flat is situated by Edinburgh's ancient and historic Grassmarket, with its cosmopolitan variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres and quirky shops.
A 10 minute walk will bring you to our famous Princes Street and its gardens. Many of the museums, galleries and attractions in Edinburgh city centre and the Royal Mile are also an easy stroll from the studio flat. The apartment is located in a quiet part of the building, away from the bustle of the main street. It is part of a gated community, with security entry. The Grassmarket is an area steeped in history, retaining its old town charm and character, and providing the visitor with an array of interesting places to visit. A lovely, bright, clean and cosy flat, which we love to stay in ourselves. Many recommendations.

The Lothians / Midlothian 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.
