Townhouse | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 20
Our three storey townhouse is elegant and furnished mostly with antique furniture. We are situated on a corner facing a church, and quite close to the centre. We can cope with up to 20 and even 28 if the dining room is used for sleeping accommodation.
The house is normally set up with seven double bedrooms, but bed arrangements are flexible by arrangement as we have additional single beds and bunks. There is a bathroom on each floor, a lovely living room with a grand piano, a large dining room, a front and a back patio garden. The homely house is old so has the normal characterful bumps of age. It is close to shops and buses.
It is an excellent base for visiting Edinburgh and Scotland, as it is approximately 15 minutes walk from the bus station, train station and Scottish tour bus departure points. Most of the galleries and museums as well as the Royal Botanical Gardens are within walking distance.

The Lothians region
One of the most popular European capital cities and an excellent starting point for exploring and visiting Scotland. The city has many galleries, museums and parks. The Scottish Enlightenment lasted some 40 years towards the end of the 18th century is very well documented in history and many of the buildings involved still stand. It is a beautiful, friendly country on the northern edge of Europe, probably heading for independence several hundred years after losing its parliament and it's king becoming king of the United Kingdom.
There are festivals and Scottish Highland Games, with long, light evenings throughout the summer. Music, history, golf, whisky, fresh air and clean water are some of the things Scotland has to offer. Robert Burns was our great poet of the people who is well remembered in many towns, villages, books and music.
Edinburgh is near the sea and built on seven hills. It is possible to get a good feel for Edinburgh in a day or two. It is not all flat which gives increased character and makes it easier to work out locations.
Do not forget to leave some time for travelling around Scotland and always double the time you think a journey should take. Each region has its own character.
