The Midlothian region
'Edinburgh', said the writer Robert Louis Stevenson, 'is what Paris ought to be'.
Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty tenements and narrow closes of its medieval Old Town as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace and geometric precision of the Georgian New Town.
Above it all, in its towering splendour, stands the Castle.
Every step is a revelation - an alleyway which reveals an ancient courtyard, or a wynd which opens up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, and above all a city which rewards every visitor.
Beyond the city, the Lothian countryside provides a beautiful setting for the rich gems of the capital.
This is an area steeped in history, filled with castles, great houses and battle sites.
It's also the ancient home of the game of golf and you can find some of the great links and parkland courses of the world here.
In fact, the trails and parkland and miles of glorious coastline in the Lothians open up the countryside for everyone - from picnickers on the fine golden beaches, to walkers high in the Pentland Hills.
Located in the heart of cosmopolitan Stockbridge is a popular, established residential area less than one mile north of Edinburgh's City Centre and the famous Princes Street.
Full of character and offering a wealth of shops, boutiques, deli's, bars and restaurants, Stockbridge truly is a 'village within the city'.
A short distance away there is a Sainsbury's local and Waitrose supermarket with a retail park a 5 minute drive away offering a Marks and Spencers and various other high street brands.
Stockbridge is also a superb location for families and individuals with recreational amenities such as Inverleith Park, a swimming pool and gym on Glenogle Road opposite the apartment and the Royal Botantic Gardens is only a short walk away.
Stockbridge has become a culinary hub and boasts many fine restaurants including Tom Kitchin's Scran and Scallie, Rollo, Bon Vivant and Mark Greenaway's restaurant.
An excellent local bus service provides easy access to the City Centre and surrounding areas.
