Drummond Place is just a short stroll from the many nearby restaurants, shops, bars, and cafes. Attractions such as the Water of Leith and the Royal Botanic Garden are easily accessible.

Interior layout

A classic colour scheme and an abundance of natural light make for a warm and welcoming space in this apartment. In the wonderfully spacious living room, two tall, wide wood-panelled windows look out into the beautiful private gardens at the centre of New Town Views. Facing south, these windows capture the lush greenery of spring and summer in Edinburgh, as well as the marvelous morning light. 

Two comfortable cream-coloured couches sit across from the television and the fireplace, creating the ideal space for groups to relax, unwind, and spend some time together. A cosy rug and delightful, carefully chosen art and decor add character to the room. Behind the seating area, a large wooden dining table accommodates up to six. 

Next door, the similarly luminous kitchen is equipped with essentials for your stay including a microwave, kettle, toaster, refrigerator, freezer, hob, dishwasher and espresso machine. Guests will have access to an oven, and plenty of counter space, as well as a smaller, more casual dining area for two.

Just beyond, you’ll reach Edinburgh Waverley Railway Station and the many historic attractions of Edinburgh’s Old Town, including Edinburgh Castle, St Giles Cathedral, and the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile.
