Deals for using the buses can be obtained from the Lothian Buses Office located next to Waverley Rail station. Useful guides, maps and money-off vouchers are always available here.

You can take a bus to Edinburgh Zoo (notable for its Giant Pandas on loan from China) or to Ocean Terminal shopping centre (North, for Debenhams, smaller shops, restaurants and the Royal Yacht Britannia) or to the Gyle Shopping Centre (West, for the large Marks and Spencer Store).

Suggested Walking Tours:

am or pm – allow a morning (or afternoon) to explore the heart of Edinburgh on foot. There are several 'must-do' routes to explore if you're new to Edinburgh, with plenty of opportunities for memorable photos/selfies, viewing architecture, shopping, exercise or just relaxing:

1. Walk along Princes Street for great views of Edinburgh Castle, the Old Town buildings, the iconic Balmoral hotel, Walter Scott Monument, The Art Museum and the Gardens. Plus get a feel for shopping – with Jenner's and Fraser's Department stores located at the East and West End.

Stop along the way for an ice cream (from street vendors of Thornton's shop) or coffee upstairs at Waterstone's Bookstore and take in great views of the Castle and the Caledonian Hotel. Watch Edinburgh's iconic buses or the tram go by as you enjoy a drink or a light nibble and take a convenience break (WC is free).

At the West end, turn left along Lothian road to enjoy more spectacular views of the Castle. Take another left along Castle Terrace and walk further around the road leading up to the Castle and the Royal Mile – the road linking the Castle with Holyrood Palace.

Walk up to the Castle to take in Views over the South and North of Edinburgh. Then walk back down the Royal Mile to see shops (for souvenirs or gifts, such as whisky or clothing), street entertainment (crowded in Festival time – the whole of August each year), the Tron cathedral with its distinctive tower, restaurants, and pubs. Enjoy the varied architecture, including the Bank Hotel. You can find plenty of places for lunch or evening meals along the route.

The Royal mile ends with the Scottish Parliament buildings located a short step across the road from Holyrood Palace – the home of the royal family for many centuries.

2. Having conquered the first route you will have spotted plenty of side-roads deserving further investigation. From the Holyrood Palace/Houses of Parliament you can take a walk to Arthur's seat – the huge extinct volcano that dominates the East of Edinburgh. Take the path up to the Crags to get more views over Edinburgh, but beware, a walk to the top of Arthur's seat is a whole day excursion and requires appropriate walking shoes and clothing (it can be quite cold up there!!).

Alternatively you can walk eastwards along Princes Street from the Balmoral hotel to the foot of Calton Hill. Take the steep flights of steps up the hill for a great reward – incredible views of Princes Street, the 3-spires of the Catholic cathedral in the East end, the New Town, Leith, Ocean Terminal, the Port of Edinburgh and the Forth estuary. In the distance you can see Fife across the sea and watch airplanes on their descent along the estuary into Edinburgh airport in the west. Also explore the Observatory, the clock tower and the folly resembling the temple at the Athens Acropolis.

3. From Calton Hill you may be inspired to explore the New Town. You can walk back along Princes Street, past the fine statue of the Duke of Wellington towards Jenner's department store and take a right turn into St. Andrew Square dominated by a tall column celebrating naval history. Check out Harvey Nichols department store and Louis Vuitton among the high end shops in this locality. The Café Royal bar and restaurant, tucked away between the Bank of Scotland Headquarters and the Apple store (on Princes Street), are worth visiting too.

From St. Andrew Square you can walk along George Street for shopping or you can turn right onto Queen Street to visit the National Portrait Gallery (free entry, WC and nice café). At the west end of George Street you will find Charlotte Square (the venue for the Book Festival in August). Taking any of the North-facing turns from George Street will lead you down the hill to Queen Street and the New Town. Follow these roads further for destinations such as the Botanic Gardens and Fettes College (the huge private school) with impressive architectural features. Along the way you can explore the gentrified districts of The Royal Circus, Stockbridge, Raeburn Place, Comely Bank and Dean Village (near the Modern Art Gallery).

“Dirty, disorganised, tatty and disappointing. Feels like a student house.”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2016

The description of this property is hugely misleading. It certainly isn’t charming. It’s not even clean! I work in the travel industry and have to deal with complaints all the time so I rarely say anything negative unless I think it is justified. We stayed for 3 nights to celebrate a family birthday and picked the property because it was fairly central and good value. The owner didn’t even know how many nights we had booked as they sent the cleaner around a day early and then asked us to call him urgently to confirm that we had another night book. ( Surely they can check the paperwork themselves rather than getting clients to call them; very unprofessional.) I’m not going to list everything that is wrong with the property but in short it is very poorly maintained, dirty and feels at best like a student house. To name a few issues: the curtains were not property on the rails in the sitting room nor in one of the bedrooms, the door of the sitting room was hanging off the hinges, there was a huge rip in the sofa, the walls had marks, peeling paint and holes. The kitchen was poorly equipped with not enough glasses for guests and everything was dirty. There was a wire hanging out of the wall behind the sofa and the front door lock was damaged and unsafe. We emailed the owner during our stay to explain our disappointment and he did provide us with more glasses and replace the lock on the front door but I’m afraid this was far too little too late. I think that they need to bring this place up to a safe and decent standard to have any hope of future bookings. Good luck.
