The Lothians region

Edinburgh is a vibrant city. A visit in August is a popular time to visit as Edinburgh hosts the famous fringe festival which is an ideal time to visit. Edinburgh is an ideal city break and using it as a hub you can visit the surrounding areas with ease.

From the atmospheric cobbled streets of the Old Town to the beautiful Georgian avenues of the New Town, Edinburgh is a city of contrasts blending shopping, historic attractions, gardens and plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can relax.

Step inside Edinburgh and the Lothians’ most magnificent historic houses and palaces and see the birthplace and the home of Mary Queen of Scots, the striking grand home of the Hope family at Hopetoun House and the home of one of Scotland’s oldest families.


Edinburgh and the Lothians is a region of important landmarks and is home to world-famous festivals.

Excellent visitor attractions, and fantastic restaurants in Scotland’s capital city make it the ideal city break.

All the castles in Edinburgh and the Lothians have a different story to tell, whether it’s about the Stone of Destiny, the difficult life of Mary Queen of Scots or one of Scotland’s most powerful families, the Crichtons.

Plus a fantastic variety of productions staged in amazing theatres. Settle down in a comfy chair and enjoy work by big companies such as Scottish Opera and the National Theatre of Scotland or see leading amateur performances.

Fascinating museums as you would expect. See T-Rex at the National Museum of Scotland, Concorde at the National Museum of Flight and Steiff Bears at the world’s only dedicated Museum of Childhood.

Edinburgh has a collection of fantastic art galleries which feature fine and modern art, portraits and contemporary work. Look out for pieces by Raphael, Monet, Picasso and other great artists from the early Renaissance to the modern day.

"Would have been great apart from rancid smell for the duration of our visit..."

I stayed in this property for 3 nights with my husband and our good friends. For the most part, the flat was lovely and suited our purposes. The facilities were great, and the owner was very helpful.H… More

Thanks for taking the time to review the apartment. It was unfortunate about the waste disposal situation which was completely out of my control and rectified asap. Upon arrival back at the apartment the smell had gone completely so I trust you appreciated the effort to rectify the complaint during your stay.

Had a lovely long weekend break and was kindly welcomed by the owner and it is a wow factor on entry with size and views from front and rear, ticks 10/10 for us. If you like lounging with coffee, wine and dining in comfort of apartment, eating out, the coast, the city, walking, touring, then this is the place for you. We stayed because a member of the family was running in the Edinburgh marathon and whilst weather not bril to enjoy the outdoor balconies, there was ample of other things to do and it is only a short cheap taxi fair £9.00 for four into the city. The bus stop is only over the road too and £3.50 return so you do not need the car. Walking is only up to half hour if you like the exercise. Would 100% recommend this apartment and would love to return again as lots to do.

Thanks so much for leaving a review - hope to see you again in the future Tracey

"Great appartment, good location, fantastic owner!"

Myself and my partner travelled with our two young children and stayed over the may bank hol w.end. Our first impression of the appartment and of Craig were not wrong. Both were wonderful. The appartment has everything you could need and Craig is a gentleman and very mindful of any requirements you may have. The location was good especially as we did not have a car yet we were able to get a bus or taxi relatively easily and at reasonable cost.

Thanks so much for the review and hope to welcome you back again in the future.

"Fantastic apartment, can't wait for our next stay!"

Craig couldn't have been more helpful. Apartment was very spacious and fully equipped to make our stay a home from home. The location was ideal for exploring Leith and the city centre, with great views across the city. We will definitely be back soon.

Thanks so much for the review and look forward to seeing you again soon

Stayed with 5 friends in this penthouse apartment over a weekend, and had an absolutely brilliant time! Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the apartment which was extremely clean, tidy and welcoming. Although it is not mentioned, the penthouse also has under-floor heating which we found out on the second day. Great location only 5 mins from the centre of Edinburgh (taxi will cost between £6-£11 as they add on an extra charge). Would definitely recommend and consider staying here again.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and I hope you'll come back on your next trip/city break

"All as expected"

Brilliant apartment, everything as expected. Very big, comfortable area, fully equipped kitchen. Great for small kids and self-catering. The owner is great!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the apartment - hope to see you again one day

"Superb apartment"

The apartment is on the top floor of an impressive development and has the benefit of secure underground parking. The apartment itself has excellent views from the dual aspect open plan living space and was both clean and well equipped. My wife and I regularly take short breaks in Edinburgh, usually accompanied by our teenage son, always staying in self catering apartments. This is probably the best we have stayed in and we will certainly be returning. Many thanks to Craig for his warm welcome.

Thanks so much for the review and look forward to inviting you back again in the future - BR craig
