Princes Street (the main shopping street), Waverley Railway Station and Edinburgh's Georgian new town are all within a comfortable walking distance. Reasonably priced but quality accommodation awarded four (4) stars for quality and cleanliness by Visit Scotland (Scottish Tourist Board)

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Edinburgh is located in the central belt of Scotland and within easy driving distance of Fife (Home of Golf), Glasgow (what was the second city of the British Empire), Stirling and Perth (the gateway to the Scottish Highlands). The house is located in Edinburgh's historic Old Town which dates back to prehistoric times but many of whose extant buildings date back to the sixteenth century or earlier.The house is located within a two minute walk of the Royal Mile the centre of Edinburgh's Old Town. The house is, indeed, located in the city centre. It is close to almost all of Edinburgh's historic and tourist sites. Outside of Edinburgh and thanks to a certain Hollywood blockbuster movie, Rosslyn Chapel is now Midlothian's most famous historic site.

Royal Mile

Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is one of the UK's most popular destinations for visitors. It is a beautiful city, with architecture that is renowned throughout the world. However, Edinburgh is historically important too, having a major role in both Scottish and British history for hundreds of years. This is reflected in the many important buildings and monuments in the city. Until the late 18th century, Edinburgh consisted mainly of what is now known as the Old Town (where you'll find the Castle, Royal Mile, and Grassmarket). The university was founded in 1583, jump-starting the city's educational and professional development. The Bank of Scotland was established in 1695, laying the foundations for Edinburgh's development into a leading financial capital by the end of the 20th century.The Act of Union in 1707 joined Scotland and England politically, and transferred significant political powers from Edinburgh to London. By the late 18th century, Edinburgh had a population of 35,000. The increasingly overcrowded conditions led to many rich people leaving the city, principally to move to London. In the 1760s as a result of the continuing overcrowded and unhealthy conditions in the Old Town, there was a competition to design a New Town. James Craig's winning design produced the current new city's grid-like street system. Building began in 1767 and was completed in 1810. Because of its culture, elegant layout, and its neo-classical architecture, Edinburgh became known as the Athens of the North. The city centre is dominated by the magnificent Edinburgh Castle (designated a world Heritage Site by UNESCO) which stands at the head of the Old Town perched high on its volcanic rock looking down on a city where medieval lanes and elegant, sweeping terraces hold over ten centuries of history, mystery and tradition. Yet Edinburgh is also a modern, dynamic capital city where festivals attract the world's leading performers. Galleries display cutting-edge art, and bars, restaurants and clubs create a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a distinctly Scottish twist. Each year during the summer months Edinburgh becomes the world's Festival City. The huge range and number of artistic events, performances and exhibitions throughout the city make a visit to Edinburgh unforgettable. It makes you feel that there is always something else happening around the corner which you are missing. There probably is - which is inevitably part of the joy of the Festival. To make your stay more enjoyable and informed, we've put together a collection of websites to give you an idea of what Edinburgh has to offer. Whether it's the festival, the fringe or the tattoo, there is always something exciting happening that you won't find in any other city in the world. Ghost tours, whisky tasting, ceilidh dancing, pubs, international restaurants, clubs, museums, art galleries, theatres, and cinemas are just a few of the things you will find in the links below.

“Beautiful House in a Great Location”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2015

My two sisters and I have just returned to Ireland from our stay in Edinburgh at this lovely house in Tolbooth Wynd at the palace end of the Royal Mile. This is my second stay there having stayed with my husband and two children on my last visit to Edinburgh. The house was immaculate and all the little extras like washing up liquid and tee towels etc were provided, Even though we only used the kitchen for breakfast, you could easily cook a full meal there and I wanted to take the big gas hob home with me. The dishwasher was also handy. Two bedrooms have en suites and there is a third bath/shower room which the third bedroom can use ie. we all had our own bathroom which was very nice. We're not party people so at the end of the night we relaxed with a glass of vinos and a movie from the big selection. My only suggestion for the house would be a few Scottish movies as after a days sightseeing you'd be in the form for a bit of Braveheart or Rob Roy. Also as there is wifi, a chromecast would be a great addition. As for location, it was ideal. The open top buses stop just outside the entrance and everything on the Royal Mile is within easy walking distance. Edinburgh is a great destination for a weekend or a month - there is so much to discover. I'll be back and hoping this house will be available!
