The Edinburgh region

The City of Edinburgh offers you an ideal opportunity to experience the mixture of traditional and contemporary lifestyles located within a vibrant and internationally famous city.

From the narrow streets and winding stairways of the historic old city centre to the sweeping Georgian terraced houses in the 'new town', the City offers you the best of architecture.

The hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs offer food, relaxation and refreshments for every conceivable pallet whilst the galleries, exhibitions and festivals ensure that no often how many times you visit the city, there is always more to see.

Experience the 'Dynamic Earth' exhibition describing the fascinating volcanic activity and the formation of 'Arthur's Seat'. Then, only a few metres away is the Scottish Parliament building, the heart of Scottish Government.

Stroll across to the Palace of Holyrood and then up the famous Royal Mile, experiencing the multiple malt whisky opportunities en route, as you head towards Edinburgh Castle.

Participate in a tour of the secret underground streets and Mary King's close, sealed during a plague outbreak in the 17th century.

And of course, there's plenty of time to relax walking through the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens or dining in one of the many Michelin Star restaurants across the City.

Davidsons Mains

Originally a small village, Davidsons Mains and Blackhall now form part of the City of Edinburgh. The area has virtually every conceivable amenity within a few minutes walk of the Annexe including shops, supermarket, bars, chemist and Post Office. In addition you can stroll through the local park and access Corstorphine woods or walk the 3km to the edge of the sea shore.

There are few UK locations offering such a mixture of activities, features, relaxation and entertainment all within a few minutes journey time.

The area is served by a number of bus services and journey time to the city centre by bus is only 15 minutes.

"Perfect in every way"

We have just returned from a week in The Annexe and had to drag ourselves away! From the welcome we received (after a long drive up from the south of England and resulting late arrival to find Fiona waiting for us) to the superb breakfast provisions, toiletries, fresh flowers, fruit, bus tickets and the most comfortable bed ever, we were amazed at the attention to detail in order to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We will certainly return to The Annexe in order to revisit wonderful Edinburgh and St Andrews. Well done, Fiona, The Annexe was peaceful, cosy, beautifully furnished and a great base for us.

That's right "The Annexe" was out of this world. So relaxing,quiet. It was a beautiful place to stay. We were celebrating my boyfriend's 50yr birthday. So many lovely places to visit and only a bus ride away. Fiona even left us 2 bus tickets to start us of with. So we bought 2 weekly passes and away we went. The best thing we got. The bus service is great. So we went all over. But the best was The Royal Yacht Britannia. The tour, where we had a lovely birthday lunch followed by drinks at the Dome then a meal. We came home relaxed and refreshed. Thank you Fiona we will be back. X

"Excelled our expectations"

A most warm and friendly welcome awaited us, well excelling our expectations; excellent facilities and extra personal touches, including food starter pack, were much appreciated. Very clean, constantly warm and most comfortable. A genuine five star proprerty and very conveniently placed. We have already booked to return.

"Luxurious and relaxing holiday apartment"

The apartment is perfect! All very modern but still very homely. The bed was the most comfortable one I have ever slept in! We were up for the festival but spent one day just relaxing and enjoying cocktails in the garden. The owner (and her dog!) were really friendly and had thought of everything that we could need for our stay - a welcome pack with details of things to see and do around Edinburgh, bus timetables, Festival Fringe information and breakfast supplies. It took us slightly longer than expected to get into town but I think that was due to diversions in place for the festival. I would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be returning myself.

"Excellent accommodation and location for Edinburgh and surrounding areas"

The Annexe provides excellent and well appointed accommodation for a couple wishing to explore Edinburgh (a 15 min bus journey) and the surrounding areas. We went for the festival and The Annexe provided an excellent base with everything you could want in a 'home from home'. The owner has thought of everything from washing-up liquid (and dishwasher tablets!) to super soft towels. We would recommend The Annexe without hesitation.

"Aboslutely beautiful."

I can't recommend The Annexe highly enough. The owners were friendly, welcoming and efficient, with all our requirements anticipated and met. The apartment is beautifully prepared and thought-out, designed and furnished with care and attention to detail, and a far cry from the bare-minimum / cheapest option approach often found elsewhere. Private parking was a huge advantage. The location is ideal - close enough to be a short bus ride / drive into town, but far enough away from the hustle of the centre to be a quiet hideaway too. I could go on but suffice to say that I can't fault it in any way - very highly recommended.

"Truly exellent"

This annex is really luxury.The lady owner was the most friendly person we have met in Scotland,she is a nice person.We will certainly book again should we go to the festival. Thank you Fiona for a lovely stay.

"A gem of a place. Beautiful, relaxing area close to Edinburgh."

We were looking for a place to spend a rejuvenating weekend, but wanted to be close enough to all Edinburgh had to offer. And the location was fabulous, there is a woods 10 minutes away with views to the sea and a zoo close by as well. The bus stop to Edinburgh City Center is two minutes away and runs every 15 minutes, just give yourself at least twenty five minutes to get to Princes Street. The beach at Cromands, is also 25 minutes away, is magnificent and completely accessible by bus The Annex apartment was a dream! Better than I hoped – and than it looked in the photographs. The bedroom was wonderfully furnished and extremely comfortable - feather pillows and blankets, lamps everywhere. There was a wonderful starter pack in well appointed, lovely kitchen. Every touch was thought-out and perfect down to the clever hanging soap holder in the shower and the make-up light above the mirror. The warm red living/dining room furnishings, leather couches and Sony flat screen made it slightly difficult to leave. The garden is way larger and prettier than in the photo! But that was the least of it. Fiona and her husband were wonderful! They were there for anything that we possibly needed - their service extended well beyond the ordinary. I didn’t have an adapter for my laptop, I was loaned a laptop cord on the spot and two adapters showed up on my doorstep the next morning. I even received an email informing me that I had left two sweaters behind and that they were being posted to me! All in all, a perfect stay – we didn’t want to leave! Thank you!

Many thanks for your kind words, I am glad you received your sweaters safely and we hope to welcome you back at The Annexe in the future.

"A real home from home when exploring Edinburgh"

If like me you thought there wasn't much to do in the Edinburgh area then think again. We stayed 4 nights at the Annexe and visited Edinburgh Castle, Hollyrood Palace, the Royal Highland Show, saw Bon Jovi in concert (30 minute walk to Murrayfield Stadium from the Annexe), explored the Royal yacht Britannia and had lunch in a michelin starred restaurant in Leith (Tom Kitchen). I'd recommend them all (depending on your music tastes). A bus goes from the bottom of the road every 15 minutes into town (just make sure you have your £1.30 ready or the driver gets grumpy). We drove to Leith where there is ample free parking. The Annexe is immaculately clean with everything new and everything works as it should (not surprising as we were the very first paying guests). Fantastic big bed, a comfy sofa each, a file of local information with those all important take aways included, a DVD collection that we didn't even have time to sample and the owner (Fiona) was always next door if we got stuck.
