                          The apartment building is in Lothian Road which is in the City Centre adjacent to Princes Street. It is within easy walking distance of most of the attractions and with good transport links. There are bus stops outside Lothian House, a Taxi Rank in the next block and both Waverley and Haymarket Railway Stations are within walking distance. The Airport Bus drops off and picks up on Shandwick Place, a 7 minute walk. A City Tour Bus can be boarded at the Princes Street end of Lothian Road.

                          Lothian Road has the Lyceum, Traverse, Kings and Usher Hall theatres, Churches, The Filmhouse, Odeon Cinema, pubs, clubs and restaurants. The Edinburgh International Conference Centre is just around the corner on Morrison Street. Also adjacent is the Canal basin which has restaurants and canal side walks. For children there is an excellent playground at the Lothian Road end of Princes Street gardens. Going south a few minutes walk takes you to the Meadows to play ball games, golf, jog or picnic. The Meadows has many events during the year. A short walk east takes you into the historical Grassmarket with many more pubs (with live music), restaurants, speciality shops and DanceBase.

                          There are two late opening supermarkets (Sainsbury and Scotmid) in the ground floor of the apartment block then Tesco and Boots pharmacy in the next block. The Edinburgh Farmers Market takes place on Saturday mornings in nearby Castle Terrace.
