Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Leith

Leith is full of cultural influence and historical architecture, yet calm with waterfront serenity. Leith's 'Shore' area offers an excellent choice of quirky shops, cosy restaurants (including Michelin star), cafes and bars. The Royal Yacht Britannia, Leith Victoria Leisure Centre, Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre and Cinema Complex as well as Leith Links Park with children's playpark are also within walking distance. Joppa and Portobello seaside villages can be reached in 10 minutes by car and make a great day out. The Water of Leith is a lovely walk or cycle through the city from Leith, enjoy the wildlife and a stop at quirky Stockbridge for lunch or a coffee!

The fabulous historic city centre of Edinburgh is only a 15 minute taxi/bus ride away and the bus service in and out of Leith is excellent. Buses go direct to and from the famous Royal Mile as well as other popular parts/destinations in the city centre; Princes Street, George Street, Old Town, New Town, Edinburgh Zoo etc.

Buses to Murrayfield Stadium - there's 2 direct buses from Leith to Murrayfield Stadium (No. 22 ans 12), it takes up to approximately 25 minutes by bus.

The apartment can be reached direct by bus from Edinburgh Airport and Edinburgh train/bus station.

“Comfortable and convenient with parking outside.”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2013

It was lovely having the accomodation on one level with parking outside. Very comfortable beds and settees and having two bathrooms made it ideal for two couples sharing. Easy walking distance to The Shore and Ocean Terminal and for buses into Edinburgh.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review:-) So pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment nice and comfortable. We're redecorating this winter to make more improvements so hopefully you will come back and stay if visiting our beautiful city again! Best wishes, Elaine & Ross

“Excellent 2 Bed Flat with everything you could need for a family break”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2013

The flat was very clean and nicely decorated throughout with a lovely large living / dining room with comfy sofas and wi-fi. There were 2 bathrooms which was a real bonus as my 2 teenage children like to spend lots of time getting ready! It is centrally located in Leith and it is only a short walk to supermarkets and the bus into town (although you can walk to the bottom of Princes St in 20 minutes). We found a fantastic Spanish tapas restaurant just 2 minutes away from the flat on Queen Charlotte Street - www.lamulaobstinada.co.uk It is a great base for a family holiday with so much to do in Edinburgh - the Zoo, shopping, Mary Kings Close, great museums and Ocean Terminal at Leith Waterfront The owner was extremely helpful and sorted out a problem that we had with one of the heaters straight away.
