Beautiful 18th century Georgian apartment just off the Royal Mile in Chessel's Court.

Built in 1760 and nestled in its own private courtyard, our Royal Mile Heart apartment is a fantastic base from which explore the wonders of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Interior layout

The Grade-A listed flat is beautifully decorated and retains many fine period features. The large master bedroom has an en-suite, while the second bedroom contains a double bed and an additional single bed, which may appeal to guests with young children. The large, south-facing living room is bright and comfortable, and a wonderful place to relax after a jaunt around the Old Town.


Chessel’s Court is a historic Square and has associations with numerous notable individuals, from James Boswell to Deacon Brodie. It sits just off the Royal Mile and only a few hundred meters from the Palace of Holyrood House. Take a stroll up to the castle or why not enjoy a whiskey at one of the Royal Mile’s many pubs and bars? No parking in the courtyard but paid on-street parking (free from 6.30pm until 8.30am and free on Sundays ). The nearest long-stay car park is at St John’s Hill, less than 5 minutes walk.
