The Edinburgh region

The area around Edinburgh, has many places to visit and many things to do. There is a huge choice of golf courses including the famous Old Course at St Andrews (about 80 minutes drive away), Turnberry (2 hours), Gleneagles (70 minutes); in East Lothian, there are over 20 courses, all within 30 minutes drive of Edinburgh, including Muirfield and Gullane.

For those interested in outdoor activities, there are many walking trails in East Lothian and the Borders. There are lots of bird-watching opportunities, especially at St Abbs and the Isle of May (early booking is a must!), as well as the Seabird Centre in North Berwick. There are beautiful sandy beaches at the John Muir Country Park (near Dunbar) and Gullane.

If you have an interest in history, there are many castles and stately homes – too many to list here, but some highlights include Blackness Castle (where Mel Gibson's “Hamlet” was filmed), Craigmillar Castle, Sir Walter Scott's house, Abbotsford; the abbeys of Jedburgh and Melrose; Linlithgow Palace; Tantallon Castle; and Hopetoun House. There are also the remains of Iron Age hillforts and burial sites dating back up to 5,000 years ago.

Royal Mile

The apartment is ideally located for exploring Edinburgh. Situated right on the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building are both within two minutes walk. Edinburgh castle, at the top of the Royal Mile, is a few minutes walk away, as is St Giles Cathedral. Other attractions within a few hundred metres (or yards) include: Our Dynamic Earth; the Museum of Edinburgh; the Peoples' Story; Canongate Kirk; and the Museum of Childhood.

All of central Edinburgh is within easy walking distance, including the National Museum of Scotland, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery of Scotland. Most International Festival and Fringe venues are equally accessible – the Pleasance Courtyard and the Fringe Box Office are both within 10 minutes walk.

Of course, Edinburgh has many other events to offer: Science festival (April), Film Festival (June), Jazz & Blues Festival (July), the Military Tattoo, Book Festival, Mela (August) and a number of others. And don't forget the Edinburgh Marathon in May!

There are various Edinburgh Bus Tours, and these all pass very close to the apartment. Edinburgh is well-provided with public transport, and from the stop outside the apartment it is possible to get a bus direct to Ocean Terminal, where the Royal Yacht Britannia is moored.

There are numerous options for eating and drinking in the area, with a teahouse, a Starbuck's and a pub all within 100 metres. A few minutes walk will take you to a choice of cafés, pubs (all offering food, and most offering a choice of real ales) and restaurants, offering a range of food from tea and cakes, through pizza and fajitas to sushi and award-winning Scottish cuisine.

For those who prefer to dine in, there is a small local grocer shop is also within 100 metres, and a Tesco Express supermarket is within 5 minutes walk, with a large Sainsbury supermarket about 10-15 minutes walk away.

The Royal Mile and surrounding area offer a range of shops for browsing and purchasing anything from tourist souvenirs through Scotch whisky and bagpipes to belly-dancing outfits and Venetian glass! Princes Street and the St James centre are also nearby, with Harvey Nichols, John Lewis and Jenners all within 20 minutes walk.

Also within a few minutes walk are the Queens Park and Arthur's Seat: with a little exertion, you can experience fresh air, exercise AND get some of the best views of Edinburgh from Salisbury Crags and the top of Arthur's Seat! This area is very popular for strolling, jogging, cycling or feeding the swans, geese and ducks at one of the Park's three small lochs. The Royal Commonwealth (swimming) Pool is about 15-20 minutes walk away, through the park.

There are two children's play parks in the area.

"Apartamento centrico y acogedor"

Apartamento recientemente renovado y completamente equipado ( wifi, lavadora, lavavajillas, etc ). Está decorado con gusto y cariño y no le falta nigun detalle. La situación en la “ Royal Mile “ junto al Parlamento es ideal para desplazamientos a pie. Muy recomendable.

"Perfect location, outstanding quality, nice hospitality : warm recommandation"

We are a family with 2 boys 8 and 12 years old and we enjoyed really this apartment because of its perfect location on Royal Mile and because of its outstanding comfort : everything is perfectly executed inside. From the kitchen to the bathroom and to the bedroom, all equipment is perfect. The owner showed also hospitality at our arrival which is also greatly appreciated. In conclusion : very good choice for a stay at Edimburgh.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and for your kind comments. We have tried to make the apartment comfortable for families, and we think that the large lounge plus the toys and other entertainments can help keep the kids happy - which helps keep the parents happy too! We hope to see you again soon.

"Fantastic apartment, great location, home from home."

We loved our stay in this apartment. It is situated right in the city centre so it was only a quick walk from the bus station and all the best places to go. Although it is located over a bar, we never heard any noise from it or had any trouble. We were thrilled when we got there and looked around. The apartment has everything that anyone could want for holiday accomodation and much more! The owners have thought of your every last need - there were dvds, interesting books, tourist information and some provisions. The owners are really friendly and helpful. The bed was the comfiest we've ever slept in and there were cool gadgets around the place to play with! All in all if felt very homely but also like a cool hotel suite! Would definitely like to stay here again.

Thank you for such an enthusiastic review! We want our apartment to feel like home for our guests, so it is nice to know that we are managing to do that. We are also pleased that you appreciated the comfy bed. We look forward to seeing you again.
