Holiday apartment in Edinburgh
Ramsay Gardens is one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious residential areas and is named for her inaugural resident and designer, Alan Ramsay. Built-in the mid-eighteenth century, the apartment block lies in the shadow of the Castle and at the top of Edinburgh’s “Royal Mile”, the historic boulevard linking Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House. For a true Scottish experience this is your holiday apartment in Edinburgh.
The third-floor apartment is accessed via a closed stairwell which leads to an open-air balcony and the front door. Inside the apartment is finished to a high standard and has a beguiling mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings. The main living room has a large dining table with seating for eight at one end and a small three-piece suite at the other. The room boasts some of the most extensive and dramatic views anywhere in Edinburgh and somehow lends the feeling of a captain’s cabin in an old wooden galleon.
The comfortable sitting room is an ideal place to unwind after a hard day’s sightseeing and is lavishly decorated in rich purple with velvet curtains and boutique-style wallpaper that belies the historic nature of the building. The master bedroom shares the living room’s spectacular vista and is a cool, bright space. It features a skylight directly over the bed which can be opened or closed remotely… perfect for those lazy mornings in bed.
The master bedroom en-suite boasts a shower and stand-alone bathtub. The two remaining bedrooms (one twin and one double, both of which also feature en-suite facilities) sit on the other side of the building and look across to Edinburgh’s Iconic Castle. Finally, the fully-equipped kitchen is clean and modern and features a range cooker for when all the eating out becomes a bit too much.

Our Ramsay Garden 2 property is as central as Edinburgh holiday apartments get.

Quite apart from the neighbouring Edinburgh Castle, residents enjoy easy access to St Giles Cathedral, Camera Obscura, and the famed Scotch Whiskey Experience. Furthermore, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to the many shops, bars and restaurants along Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
And if the rustic charms of the Old Town start to wear thin, a five minute stroll will take guests across Princes Street Gardens and in to the Georgian grandeur of the New Town, where shopaholics can indulge in a little retail therapy.
