Royal Mile

This apartment is situated on the Canongate, on the Royal Mile, in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. The Royal Mile, the backbone of medieval Edinburgh, connects Edinburgh Castle at one end with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Parliament at the other. Edinburgh's main visitor attractions are on your doorstep and the neighbourhood is full of attractive independent shops and restaurants, bars and cafés to suit all budgets, from cheap and cheerful pizzerias to fine dining establishments. The Hub (the official centre for the Edinburgh International Festival) and the Festival Fringe office are on the Royal Mile, and you can easily walk to many of the Festival venues. You are also ideally placed to enjoy the Christmas and Hogmanay/New Year festivities.

Bull's Close is named after Robert Bull, a writer and burgess who owned property here in the eighteenth century. The Canongate was a separate burgh from Edinburgh for over 700 years, taking its name from the canons (priests) of Holyrood Abbey. As it was near the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the area developed as the court quarter and many fine residences for aristocratic families were built there. One of these, Queensberry House, now forms part of the Scottish Parliament building. Queensberry House was bought in 1686 by the father of the 2nd Duke of Queensberry, whose eldest son, the mad Lord James Douglas, escaped from confinement one night in 1701 and murdered a kitchen-boy – the very night that his father was signing the Act of Union that dissolved the Scots Parliament and put Scotland under English rule. You can find out more about Edinburgh's grisly past on the guided tours that leave from the Royal Mile. See for example Mercat Tours, Witchery Tours and Mary King's Close.

The property has a shared garden, but if that isn't enough for you, just across the road on the other side of the Royal Mile is Dunbar's Close garden, an oasis in the city centre.

"Sehr zentral gelegenes Apartment mit guter Einrichtung"

Den grossen Pluspunkt gleich vorneweg, zentraler Leben geht in Edinburgh's Altstadt kaum. Man spart einfach unendlich viel Zeit, in kürzester Gehdistanz von Waverley Station, Holyrood Palace und dem Arthur's Seat (toll zum Joggen) zu wohnen. Die Wohnung wurde mit Stil einfach eingerichtet und die Küche enthält alles, was man auch bei längerem Aufenthalt braucht. Wöchentlich wurde die Betten neu bezogen, geputzt und nebenbei auch gleich der Abwasch gemacht und der Müll entsorgt. Sowieso war der Service hervorragend, Schwierigkeiten wurden ohne Diskussionen pragmatisch gelöst. Etwas schwieriger wird's für lärmempfindliche Leute: Die Wohnung liegt im Erdgeschoss und nachts (wie auch tagsüber) pilgern Touristen und Pubbesucher auf dem Heimweg am Schlafzimmerfenster vorbei und eine Buslinie sowie tagsüber die PKWs können empfindlich laut sein. Für kürzere Aufenthalte mit Sightseeing-Absichten kann ich diese Wohnung problemlos empfehlen. Wer für länger eine Bleibe sucht, sollte seine Schmerzgrenze bezüglich Lärmbelästigung kennen. Ich habe selber 5 Wochen dort gewohnt und habe es nie bereut...

Vielen Dank für Ihre Rezension. Wir sind froh, dass Sie einen genießbaren und gemütlichen Aufenthalt hatten, und dass Ihnen den Verkehrslärm nicht allzu sehr gestört hat. Wie Sie berichten ist der zentrale Standort ist natürlich sehr praktish. Wir hoffen, dass wir Sie in Zukunft nochmal willkommen heißen dürfen. Martin, Vacation Rentals Scotland
