Visitor attractions include the Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile, National Gallery, Princess Street Gardens, Camera Obscura, Royal Yacht Britannia and the Scottish Parliament.

It is hard to better Edinburgh but for those who want to get out of the city East Lothian is a rural idyll with many glorious beaches and a wide blue skyline.


Edinburgh is a city on a human scale where most activities are within easy walking distance or easily reached using the excellent public transport system. There is a bus stop 50 yards from Apartment where a bus runs to city centre every 10 minutes There are too many places to visit and things to do to list but an excellent tourist information office has brochures and advice in abundance.
