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.

Royal Mile

The city of Edinburgh is on your doorstep. Edinburgh Castle is across street and you can enjoy fantastic Castle views from the living room windeows. (see photos). 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. Sample food from the wide variety of local restaurants - from Michelin (next door) to delightful bars and cafes in the Royal Mile and Grassmarket, just a five minute walk away.

Don't miss Edinburgh Farmer's market which takes place on your street every Saturday morning!

"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!

"A very central and comfortable apartment with views of the castle"

We travelled to Edinburgh on an early morning flight so arrived at the apartment late morning. Kitty, the owner, had kindly said we could check in early which was very helpful, and she met us there and explained how everything in the apartment worked and gave us tips on what to do to enjoy our stay. The apartment was beautifully furnished, with fresh flowers in the living room and thick bath sheets in the bathroom. Although we ate out on each of the 3 nights we were there, we noticed that the kitchen had everything needed to cook a meal, including a weighing machine, measuring jugs and plenty of pots and pans. The bedroom was very quiet and the bed extremely comfortable. We had a fantastic choice of restaurants, many of them with gluten free dishes highlighted on the menu, which was useful for me as I have Coeliac Disease. Our favourite restaurant was Divino's, and we also enjoyed Vittoria on the Bridge, the cheaper restaurant upstairs. We were able to walk everywhere which we enjoyed. A highlight was walking to Leith and going on board the Royal Yacht Britannia. (The onboard café also had a gluten free menu which is not mentioned on the website.) Our flight home left in the evening, so once again Kitty helpfully allowed us to leave our luggage in the apartment until just before the new guests were due to arrive. We spent the last few hours of our stay looking round the Scottish National Gallery where, for £4, we were able to leave our suitcases in a locker. All in all, it was a lovely stay and we hope to return some time.
