1 Bathrooms

A comfortable and contemporary flat within Edinburgh's World Heritage Site, ideal for lone travelers or couples.

Located in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, Royal Circus was designed by the eminent architect William Henry Playfair, who was also behind the buildings of the two National Galleries of Scotland on the Mound.

Interior layout

This charming garden-level flat is accessed via the original stone stair of a 19th-century townhouse.  You’ll come down to a lobby with an integrated utility closet containing an iron, ironing board and clotheshorse, with a clothes rail for storage. This leads through to the apartment’s living space. Here, a two-seater sofa and an armchair sit across from a 40-inch Ultra HD flat-screen TV and DVD player, surrounded by a well-stocked bookshelf. There is a dining table and a pair of chairs under art depicting the character of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Around and about

Royal Circus is a great base for couples who want to enjoy all the flavour of life within the World Heritage Site of the Scottish capital. There are excellent amenities nearby.  The apartment is within a ten-minute walk to Princes Street and the intersection of Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns, while the popular area of Stockbridge is an even shorter walk in the opposite direction, bringing you to an abundance of shops and cafes on Raeburn Place and boutiques and eateries on St Stephen Street and Hamilton Place.

On a daily basis, you can choose between city centre shops and sights, including the Castle and Palace of Holyrood, or more leisurely outings in Stockbridge, which also boasts its own attractions and green spaces, including the Water of Leith with its walkway, the well-loved Inverleith Park and Pond and the delights of The Royal Botanic Garden just beyond. All in all, you can be sure of a satisfying stay.
