About this location

The Edinburgh region

Edinburgh is a handsome and easily accessible, historic city in the south east of Scotland. With a fascinating array of castles, palaces, museums and galleries you will find so much to do in this magnificent city. Very popular with visitors year round, August is high season when the city becomes full to capacity as enthusiasts flock to see the famous arts and theatre festivals which continue throughout the month.

Hogmanay is another highlight of the Edinburgh year, when the city throws a huge party for New Year revellers, and a fantastic firework display is launched from the Castle.

If you are planning to visit the Highlands and Islands, Edinburgh is the perfect place to begin your journey.

A five minute walk through Princes Street Gardens, located opposite the apartment, will take you to Princes Street and the main shopping areas. The Royal Mile is a short walk up Johnston Terrace (opposite) and all the city's Museums and Art Galleries are within easy reach. The Usher Hall, Lyceum and Traverse Theatres are just around the corner.

The apartment is located in Castle Terrace and the local area has eveyrthing to offer. Enjoy a peaceful stroll in Princes Street Gardens (opposite), gazing up at the Castle towering above you.

"Our favourite place in Edinburgh"

This was our second stay in this wonderful little flat. It is so cosy and has absolutely magnificent views of the castle. The area offers lots of places for eating out or having a drink. It is great to be right near to all the hustle and bustle yet the flat itself offers peace and quiet. We will definitely come back. Thank you, Kitty!
