Around and about

At just fifty yards from the capital’s historic high street, self-catering holiday apartments in Edinburgh don’t come much more central than this. Once on the Royal Mile, guests can head west towards Edinburgh Castle, the historic fort perched atop Castle Rock, or east towards the Palace of Holyrood House, the Queen’s Edinburgh residence. And if this all feels a bit regal, why not drop in to the Scotch Whisky Experience and sample some of Scotland’s finest export, or perhaps just go at your own pace and take a stroll through Edinburgh’s labyrinthine web of closes and alleyways.

Additionally, the apartment is ideally positioned for those travelling to enjoy or take part in Edinburgh’s world famous International Arts Festival, with many prominent venues right on the doorstep.

Finally, a five minute stroll will take guests across Princes Street Gardens and into the Georgian grandeur of the New Town, where shopaholics can indulge in a little retail therapy. Read our blog post to learn more about the Top 10 Things to Do in Edinburgh.

The property has Wi-Fi, a hairdryer, an iron and an ironing board. Please note that there is no parking at the apartment. The nearest long-stay car park is the NCP at Holyrood Road, APCOA Parking at Waverley Station or Q-Park at OMNI. .
