                      Scotland’s capital is one of the most beautiful and atmospheric cities in the world with the Castle dominating our incredible skyline. The Royal Mile, where our flat is located, is right in the centre of the Old Town - the medieval centre of Edinburgh and an absolutely perfect place from which to explore our breathtaking City. The Castle is a 10 minute walk away. Both the Old Town and the Georgian New Town Edinburgh offers you an amazing range of architectural and cultural experiences.

                      Step out your front door and step back in time. Explore the nooks and crannies of the Royal Mile and you’ll be amazed what you discover - from Mary Kings Close to the contemporary architecture of the Scottish Poetry Library.

                      The city buzzes in August with a plethora of arts and cultural festivals. There is literally something for everyone from classical ballet to juggling street performers.

                      An ideal place for a short break or having visited we’re sure you will want to come back for a longer period.
