Edinburgh, like Rome, is built on 7 hills, the most famous of them being; the dorment volcano 'Arthur's Seat', Calton Hill and The Castle Rock. The Castle Rock has a 'tail' or ridge that was carved out by nature during the Ice age, it runs from Edinburgh Castle down to the Palace of Holyroodhouse and measures slightly more than 1 mile (Hence the name The Royal Mile). 1000 years ago this ridge became Edinburghs first road. Today, it is known as 'The Royal Mile'. The apartment is set halfway down this beautiful and ancient route.
One of Europe's most beautiful Capital Cities, Edinburgh is the centre of Devolved Scottish Government, the second largest centre for European financial management after London and is home to the annual International Festival of the Arts and it's famous 'Fringe'.
Art Galleries, Museums, Theatres, Cinemas and Concert Halls contribute to a rich cultural life.
The City also plays regular host to many National & international sporting events and is a Mecca for shopping with many designer and specialist outlets.
There is a huge choice of venues for eating & drinking at every level and price imaginable.
Golf, swimming, Mounting biking, Hiking, Dry slope skiing, Histoical & ghost tours and the Dynamic Earth attraction are just some of the things to enjoy during your visit.
