Royal Park Terrace is one of Edinburgh's hidden gems. The apartment at Royal Park Terrace is a 3 Bedroom apartment overlooking Holyrood Park and only ten minutes walk through the park to Holyrood Palace, Dynamic Earth and the Royal Mile.

The apartment has been modernised to a very high degree with comfortable and quality furnishings and benefits from free on street parking all year round.

Holyrood Park is on your door step and will entice you in to enjoy its beauties. You could say it is the front garden of the flat as the gate to the park is only a few meters from the front door. You can spend an enjoyable day walking through the park picnicking, cycling, playing or just watching the swans and ducks in the nearby lochs.

There are a variety of walks up or around Arthur's Seat with many giving spectacular views of the city skyline, the Forth or the Pentland hills. There is a choice of routes to suit walkers of all abilities so there is something for everyone.

Edinburgh Sparkles

With six weeks of incredible festive celebrations, it is no surprise that Edinburgh has been voted the best place in the UK to enjoy Christmas and Hogmanay.


Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated in the centre of the city of Edinburgh, about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch.

Calton Hill is a hill in central Edinburgh, Scotland, just to the east of the New Town. Views of, and from, the hill are often used in photographs and paintings of the city.

Calton Hill is the headquarters of the Scottish Government, which is based at St Andrew's House, on the steep southern slope of the hill; with the Scottish Parliament Building, and other key buildings, for example Holyrood Palace, lying near the foot of the hill. The hill also includes several iconic monuments and buildings: the National Monument, Nelson's Monument, the Dugald Stewart Monument, the New Parliament House (the Royal High School, the Robert Burns Monument, the Political Martyrs' Monument and the City Observatory.

Meadowbank Retail Park is located just west of Meadowbank Stadium and just south of Hibs Stadium, accessed off the main road east out of Edinburgh (Scotland), the continuation of London Road up to Jock's Lodge. Most recent store addition is TK Maxx, Shops include TK Max Home Furnishings - Home, JJB Sports, Sainsburys Supermarket, Gala Bingo, Brantano, Poundstretcher & KFC.

"Excellent apartment exactly as described"

Excellent apartment in a very good location for all that Edinburgh has to offer. Well presented and comfortable with everything you may need included. Exactly as described on the website and the reviews recommending the apartment are well deserved. I would certainly recommend to anybody looking for somewhere to stay in the area.

This apartment has everything you could possibly need and has beautiful views from the front windows. I also enjoyed hearing the bagpipe player in the park opposite. Essentials such as milk on arrival was a lovely touch. We took our 2 year old daughter who was really well catered for. The beds were very comfortable and the whirlpool bath was welcomed after a long day walking round the city. I could go on..... All in all a lovely apartment not far from the city centre and a very friendly host. Well recommended and would love to return.

"Great location and comfy apartment"

We were warmly greeted and four of us enjoyed a week in Edinburgh. The location is great for those that like to walk and with two bathrooms it makes a small group workable. The apartment is well equipped not too much and not too little. We had fun and could easily spend another week. Until next time!
