The Scotland region

Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, provides a wonderful and interesting place to stay and explore.
It is a city of contrasts, maybe best illustrated by the slightly chaotic nature of the Old Town, around the castle and High Street versus the comparative order of the New Town with it's Georgian architecture and grid like street layout.
Edinburgh is world renowned for it's Festival and Fringe - making the month of August colourful and vibrant. It is also the first city to be a UNESCO city of Literature - and this is what the property here draws on.
Edinburgh is well served by transport links but is also a City that is easy to walk around in. It provides a safe environment and while by no means flat it is well served with coffee houses, deli's, restaurants and bars if you need a break in proceedings.
The areas close by such as East Lothain and Fife are very attractive parts of the Scotland and both of these are a golfers paradise while at the same time providing stunning countryside and picturesque coastal areas.

Central Scotland/Strathclyde

The New Town of Edinburgh is world famous for it's stunning Georgian architecture. It dates from between 1750 to 1850 and is a UNESCO world heritage site. The area features some exquisite details including beautiful private gardens and well maintained streets.
The main shopping areas of George Street and Princes Street are within easy walking distance and Harvey Nichols and Jenners are amongst two of the stores you would come across as you walk into town.
Close by the property Broughton Street contains some fantastic delis, a notable butcher, some lovely bars and restaurants. Around the corner is the comfortable Cumberland Bar with it's beer garden and enviable choice of real ales.
There is a children's play park 2 minutes from the flat's front door and the property is a mere 10 minutes walk into the main areas of Edinburgh.
