The Edinburgh region

The Grassmarket Flat is situated on the West Bow, Grassmarket, within the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. The City Centre, Princes Street and Princes Street Gardens are a short walk away. The Forth Road and Rail Bridges, South Queensferry, Stirling and Glasgow City Centre are within a one hour drive from Edinburgh.


The Grassmarket flat is ideally located for those interested in the history of Edinburgh.The West Bow is a steep street in the historic Old Town of Edinburgh, leading from the Grassmarket, up the hill to the world famous Royal mile and Edinburgh Castle, which is a mere two minute walk away.

Directly in front of the Grassmarket Flat is the large open Grassmarket square, now a pedestrian precinct. This was the scene of public hangings, the Porteous Riots and the haunt of the notorious body snatchers, Burke and Hare. The Martyr’s Cross memorial marks the spot of the public gallows where over 100 covenanters were hung for their beliefs.

The predestrian precinct is now host to an extensive number of bars, resturants and quality shops for your enjoyment.
