Stunning Castle View Apartment
from £57 /night help
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
New to Holiday Lettings! You can't help but be impressed with the stunning view of Edinburgh Castle. Enjoy a glass of wine or simply a cup of coffee looking at that view of the castle!
Porteous Pend castle view apartment is a 1st floor, 1 bedroom apartment. It's the perfect location for all of Edinburgh's city centre attractions. It has recently been renovated and is equipped with everything you need for a short or long stay. In contrast to overlooking the lively Grassmarket from the living room, the bedroom overlooks a quiet courtyard at the back. It is best suited to 2 people but can accommodate 2 extra guests on the comfortable sofa bed in the living room.
Princes Street and George Street are also only a 10 minute walk.
The apartment is right on the Grassmarket in Edinburgh - with plenty to see and do right on your doorstep. It's hard not to be drawn to all that the old town can offer unless of course you are looking for a quiet holiday to get away from it all!. With only a few minutes walk to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Museum of Scotland and Greyfriars Kirkyard you've got plenty of time to linger in the many pubs, restaurants and cafes on the way. There is so much to see and do in Edinburgh whether for a few days or a few weeks. Visit the many shops, theatres, art galleries and museums. Or simply wander down the many closes and small streets of the old town and discover Edinburgh's gruesome past! A visit to the New Town and the main shopping areas of Princes Street and George Street are also only a 10/15 minute walk.
The Grassmarket itself gets its name from local farmers selling hay, corn and seed. It is better known however for it's public hangings, taking place until 1784 and for the famous Porteous riot. Take a tour and discover the story of the body snatchers Burke and Hare, how half-hingit Maggie survived the Gallows and the world famous story of Greyfriars Bobby!
No need for a car, Waverley Train station is a 10 minute walk from the apartment as is the airport express bus stop. There are buses along Princes Street, Lothian Road and George IV bridge and taxis are available from the Grassmarket.
Someone will be there to welcome you on arrival and show you round the flat.
As the apartment is self catering we will let you enjoy your stay in peace. If however there are any problems you can contact us at any time during your stay.
