The historic city of Edinburgh provides visitors with the opportunity to experience a wealth of cultural attractions from the many art galleries within the city to the impressive choice of theatres and restaurants each giving its own unique experience to the visitor and allowing them to be part of the excitement and buzz of a night out in Scotland’s capital city. With its stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, and winding medieval streets, it’s easy to see why Edinburgh has been listed as a World Heritage Site. Edinburgh Castle dominates the urban skyline, perched on the crags of an ancient volcano right in the centre of the city, and overlooks Edinburgh’s Old Town, where a walk down the historic narrow wynds and closes is one of the most captivating experiences the city has to offer. There’s plenty of open space too, including Arthur’s Seat, a large parkland area of hills and lochs, plus many public parks and tree lined avenues close to the city centre including The Meadows directly opposite the apartment. For active types, there's an extensive and varied choice of activities and sports or if you just want to exercise your wallet, the capital is a great place to shop.
In August the city is enveloped by the Edinburgh Festival, a term used to cover the collection of various festivals which take over the city in an explosion of cultural expression. The streets are filled with tourists, buskers and performers and every available space in the capital is pushed into use as a venue. The summer programme includes The International Festival and the Fringe which together feature the best the world has to offer in classical and contemporary dance, music, opera, comedy, drama and theatre. The spectacle of the Military Tattoo held at the Castle Esplanade attracts a huge number of visitors each year together with the firework display signalling the end of the festival for another year. Hogmany in Edinburgh and the New Year celebrations are unrivalled in terms of atmosphere and produce one of the largest street parties in the world.
The apartment is located in an excellent position just 15 to 20 minutes walk from Princes Street and the city centre. The apartment has wonderful views across The Meadows and Bruntsfield Links, a large grassy parkland area, towards Edinburgh Castle with Carlton Hill and Edinburgh city centre skyline in the distance.
The Castle itself and Edinburgh’s historic Old Town including The Royal Mile are also within easy walking distance, allowing our guests to visit a large number of Edinburgh’s many famous attractions on foot. Bruntsfield Links, immediately opposite the apartment, is an open park area with pitch and putt course, and tennis courts and play parks can be found at the eastern edge of The Meadows only a few minutes walk away.
The Royal Commonwealth Swimming Pool and the famous Arthur’s Seat (the Queens Parkland adjacent to Holyrood Palace), are within a short walk. Regular bus links on Bruntsfield Place and Melville Drive provide easy access to other areas of Edinburgh slightly further afield, and are again only minutes from the apartment.
The Bruntsfield and Marchmont areas of Edinburgh where the apartment is located have the benefit of a variety of excellent restaurants and cafés, and local shops provide a wide ranging source of goods from quality delicatessen food to high fashion shoes.
A car would be of benefit, but the property is on bus routes and within walking distance of the centre so a car is not needed.
