This 3rd floor flat has been lovingly renovated and decorated traditionally.

Both bedrooms have very comfortable antique double beds for you to enjoy. There is plenty of space to store your clothes in the cupboard, lots of plug sockets to charge everything and you could even move the TV through to watch a DVD in bed if you fancied a lazy day.

I have done my best to source reclaimed materials wherever possible. The kitchen shelves are made out of teak decking from the MV Augustus Ocean Liner, the marble work surface was salvaged from a scrap yard, I cut a hole in an old Edwardian wash stand to put in a stunning copper sink, the tiles in the bathroom are reclaimed marble, travertine and probably a few other types of stone I don't know about! The wee sink in the separate toilet was made by a local potter. A lot of the furniture is from my childhood home in Edinburgh too.

The sun streams into the sitting room during the day but the shutters block it out should you be having a sleep on the couch.

The kitchen is fully equipped-I love to cook and want to make you feel welcome to do so. There is oil, salt, pepper, tea and coffee and probably a few other things to help you on your way to making delicious meals. And a dishwasher so you don't need to do the dishes.

Free unlimited wi-fi for you to access during your stay.

Flat screen tv with dvd player and a selection of DVDs in the cupboard.

Lovely shower, long bath, towels, bed linen, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, very comfortable double beds.

Oven, induction hobs, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster, washing machine, alarm clocks, central heating and beautiful artwork done by a local Edinburgh artist (my grandmother!).

I will come and meet you at the flat and answer any questions you have about the flat and the city. I'm from here and love to eat, drink beer and wine and appreciate the beauty of this stunning city. I'm more than happy to answer any questions you have during your stay and as I stay just 10 minutes away I can easily pop over if there is a problem.

Check in and out times are flexible depending on when the next guests are arriving. If you are checking in early I may still be doing the cleaning! That also applies if you are checking out late.

The location is one of the best in Edinburgh for accessing the sites, restaurants, museums and pubs and bars. There is a wonderful farmers market every Saturday morning (9am-1pm) just round the corner which has the most incredible fresh produce, fresh baked goods and wonderful hog roast rolls.

There are numerous supermarkets within a 5 minute walk, a lovely little grocer down stairs who does fab bacon rolls and a Michelin Star restaurant in the same block.

You will be within a 5 minute walk (usually less) to:

Edinburgh Castle

Usher Hall (great for classical/jazz/contempory music and only 30 seconds away!)

Lyceum Theatre if you fancy catching a play (next to Usher Hall)

Traverse Theatre


3 Cinemas

Bowling Alley

20+ restaurants

20+ pubs

Princes Street

It is only a 20 minute walk to Murrayfield Stadium but there are lots of buses too.

Edinburgh's bus network is great and the flat is just a minute away from the nearest bus stops which connect you with the rest of the city.

The airport bus stops very close to the flat, Waverley Train Station is only 15-20 minutes walk away and Haymarket is 15 minutes in the other direction.

The NCP car park round the corner, a 2 minute walk from the apartment,charges £24 for 24 hours. On street parking (max. 4 hours per stay) is available from £2.40 per hour. However, if you do not wish to pay for parking there is free parking within a 15 minute drive of the flat.

The parking is free from 6.30pm-8.30am daily and free all day Sunday.
