Edinburgh

The Sciennes area is quiet and leafy, close to the better-known area of Marchmont (the home of Inspector Rebus, for fans of Ian Rankin's novels) and more commercial Newington. Locally, you'll find everything you need for a great stay. There's a range of useful shops, including several greengrocers, a fishmonger and a couple of supermarkets (Sainsbury's and the Co-op), which are only a couple of minutes' walk away. The glorious open space of the Meadows where locals and students need little excuse to picnic and play, and where many events of the August Edinburgh Festival Fringe are hosted, is round the corner. The area has great transportation links and getting into central Edinburgh is very simple: within 3-8 mins' walk are multiple bus routes to aid your exploration of this wonderful historic city. If you like to walk, the historic Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Princes Street are 15-20 minutes away, and for those looking for a longer leg-stretch two of Edinburgh's "seven hills", Arthur's Seat (with the dramatic Salisbury Crags) and Blackford Hill, are close by. A huge number of restaurants and cafes are within 5-20 minutes' walk, and various concert and theatre venues, such as the Queen's Hall, the King's Theatre and the Festival Theatre are within a similar range. The Usher Hall, the Lyceum Theatre and Edinburgh Playhouse are not much further away.

Edinburgh is packed with great shopping, tasty restaurants, historical sights, museums and galleries, and theatre and concert venues. You will never be stuck for something to do during your stay!
