Bespoke & characterful top-floor apartment in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Blackie House is a stylish, 17th century penthouse. Its commanding position offers guests fantastic views across the city, while the location is perfect for those wishing to immerse themselves in Scotland’s beautiful capital city.
The apartment is uniquely furnished throughout, with hand-crafted furniture and fittings by designer Rupert Williamson adding a contemporary edge to this historic building. The flat is accessed via a lift (which opens directly on to the flat itself) or a decorated stairwell. The accommodation comprises a double bedroom and a spacious, open-plan kitchen/living/dining-room from which guests can enjoy the wonderful views over Princes Street Gardens and across to Edinburgh’s New Town.
Blackie House sits just off the Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town and only a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle itself. Guests can take a stroll down the high street and enjoy a traditional plate of haggis or pay a visit to St Giles’ Cathedral, Camera Obscura or The Scottish National Gallery, all of which are just a short walk away. The nearest paid on-street parking is Market Street (free only on Sundays and from 6.30pm to 8.30am). Long stay car parks nearby are Waverley Station and Castle Terrace.
