This flat is in a perfect location for anyone wanting to really get the best out of Edinburgh. Located right in the centre of Old Town, just off the Royal Mile, it is perfect for access to Princes Street, Holyrood and many other places - all in easy walking distance.

The Blue, is a first floor apartment featuring two large, spacious, double bedrooms and one smaller double bedroom. It includes a bathroom with shower and bath and heated towel rail. A roomy lounge with TV, DVD player and stereo and a large seperate kitchen and dining area. There is a large cloakroom with plenty of coat hanging and storage space. Although we are in the centre of town we face onto a peaceful courtyard where you can sit. We do not cater for stag or hen parties as this apartment is part of a residential area.

When not in Festival time there is still plenty to see and do, with museums, shopping and leisure activities (swimming (including commonwealth pool), cinema, gym) right on your doorstep! Arthur's Seat is less than a 10 minute walk down the Royal Mile and the castle the same distance but up the hill! Bus stops are located very near to the apartment where you can get to most places - including the Pentlands if you're into walking or downhill biking! Waverley train station is only a five minute walk away, so close for your arrival or if you fancy a day out to another local city! A local bike hire shop is just next door.

If you are checking in during the week check in times will be at generally 5pm, if you arrive on a Fri-Sun then we can accommodate an earlier check in. It is always best to let us know when you think you may be arriving.

We provide linen and towels, basic cooking supplies will be in the flat (oil, salt and pepper) and if you would like us to get some basics (bread, milk etc) for your arrival please let us know.

We do ask that you respect our neighbours, their privacy and right not to be disturbed with excessive or late night noise or aggressive behaviour.

When booking, let us know who you are and what sort of holiday you are here for, as the more information you give, the more we are able to give you a better experience booking and at the flat :)

The Edinburgh region

The Flat is located in Central Edinburgh, just off the Royal Mile in the Old Town. Edinburgh is known for its history and iconic places to visit - visit Edinburgh Castle and enjoy the city's skyline, take a walk up Arthur's seat and see right to the Pentlands, Visit Holyrood Palace; the home of the Queen. Visit Dynamic Earth with the kids, have a look at the new Scottish parliament or go to one of Edinburgh's many museums and Art Gallery's, or enjoy the flowers in the botanic garden, most of which are never more than a 15 minute walk away. If you fancy something a bit more sporty, you could hire a bike from just next door to the flat and cycle round the city or along the canal, and if you're feeling adventurous bike out to the Pentlands or Corstorphine Hill and go on one of its downhill trails. You could even bike to the seaside and have a picnic!Buses go from just along the road from the flat to many areas, including the Pentlands( if you don't fancy the cycle). You could catch a bus to Leith (or walk there in about half an hour) and go and visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. Buses also go to nearby beaches and the island of Cramond. You could take a day trip on the train to North Berwick and visit the famous Bass rock or visit Berwick-Upon-Tweed, an hour away, or go the other way and visit Glasgow. Edinburgh is famous for its Fringe Festival which runs every year throughout August, and this flat is extremely convenient with all the festival has to offer right on the doorstep! With the castle near by it is also ideal for those wishing to see the Military Tattoo too. There is plenty to see and do in and around Edinburgh and this flat gives you the best jumping off point!

Old Town, Edinburgh

In the centre of Old Town, all the major sites are within a easy 5 to 10 minute walk. With the Royal Mile literally just up the street, you can enjoy all the sights, sounds and occassional wee dram! Here for the Fringe, then this apartment is perfect - Cowgate, the centre to The Fringe's activities, is just at the end of the road.

There are plenty of eateries nearby as well as street cafe seating and watching the world go by.
