Our beautiful Ramsay Garden holiday apartment neighbours Edinburgh’s iconic castle and boasts commanding views across the heart of the city.
An Edinburgh World Heritage Site, Ramsey Garden is named for her inaugural resident, esteemed poet Alan Ramsay, who built the original lodge in 1740. The apartment sits atop Castlehill in Edinburgh’s Old Town (just a stone's throw from the ancient fort) and can count itself among the city’s most exclusive postcodes.
The apartment itself is stylishly furnished throughout. Entrance is at ground level and opens directly on to the main hall which is tastefully decorated and features a waterfall chandelier. First off the hall is the small lounge/library where guests can baton down the hatches with a book on a rainy afternoon or enjoy a coffee and a board game.
The first of the bedrooms contains a kingsize bed and fitted double wardrobe, and provides guests with fantastic views of the city centre. The neighbouring master bedroom shares the same views but features a super-kingsize, four-poster bed and flatscreen TV with integrated DVD.
Next door is the living room which benefits from a bright and uplifting atmosphere thanks to bay windows and a small balcony that again looks directly on to Princess Street Gardens and the city beyond. The room is elegantly furnished and features a wall-mounted 4K Ultra HD Smart TV. Oversize double-doors connect the adjoining dining/conference room which benefits from its own bay windows and includes a dining table with seating for eight and an engraved oriental fireplace. The main hall also provides access to a further double bedroom featuring a kingsize bed.
The rear of the apartment is accessed via a short corridor. At the far end of this lies the kitchen which contains, among all the usual facilities, dual ovens and a gas cooking range (as well as washing machine and dishwasher). Also leading off the corridor are the apartment’s two bathrooms and a further double bedroom with kingsize bed. The first bathroom features a freestanding roll top bath with integrated shower head, while the second boasts a walk-in wet area. Both bathrooms feature heated towel rails and underfloor heating.

The location offers stunning views that span the length of Princes street, the New Town and across the Firth of Forth to Fife.

Furthermore, guests will find themselves spoilt for choice when it comes to the many shops, bars and restaurants along Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, the old high street linking the castle to the Palace of Holyrood House.
