Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Edinburgh is the beautiful Capital of Scotland and has an interesting heritage, a reputation for culture, extensive leisure facilities and great shopping.

Scotland has a glorious history and much of it took place here in Edinburgh . There are plenty of opportunities to explore that on a visit to the City. Visitor attractions include the Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile, National Gallery, Princess Street Gardens, Camera Obscura, Royal Yacht Britannia and the Scottish Parliament.

It is hard to better Edinburgh but for those who want to get out of the city East Lothian is a rural idyll with many glorious beaches and a wide blue skyline.

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city on a human scale where most activities are within easy walking distance or easily reached using the excellent public transport system. There is a bus stop 50 yards from Apartment where a bus runs to city centre every 10 minutes There are too many places to visit and things to do to list but an excellent tourist information office has brochures and advice in abundance.

To fit in all you want to see and do some prior research might be advisable.

Goldenacre has 3 grocery stores, 3 cafes, an antique shop, an excellent fish shop, a pharmacy and 3 Banks. Nearby in Canonmills there are further cafes , restaurants and pubs and a Tesco Superstore. The beautiful, peaceful Royal Botanic Gardens are a 5 minute walk from the Apartment.

“Brilliant location, fantastic view”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2016

Castle View is a modern flat with everything that we could wish for our week's stay during the Edinburgh Festival. The location is just far enough out of the city centre, but a very easy 10 minute bus ride to Princes Street or 15 minutes to The Royal Mile. The view from the living room and balcony takes in the entire city from Arthur's Seat to the Castle with its firework display every evening ending the tattoo. A Tesco supermarket is not too far away by bus or even walking and a Waitrose is a little further - we drove to both for convenience. The flat has wifi, cooking equipment, dishwasher, washing machine and a TV (although a little dated, it was perfectly usable if required). A comfy kingsize bed with nice bedding and fluffy towels is in the bedroom to the rear/side of the property meaning a quiet nights sleep. There is both an en-suite with shower and a separate bathroom. Grahame is a helpful host who has provided plenty of information about Edinburgh, surrounding attractions, the festival guides (at this time of year) and the local bus routes. We would definitely recommend this apartment as a convenient base where a car can be left in the allocated parking while staying in Edinburgh.
