About Ruth Sherratt
I'm a born and bred Scot who works in the international development sector, and so I often work and live overseas. That's why since 2005 I've been renting out my wee flat. It was my beloved home and I still have a lot of fondness for it - I hope you like it!
Ruth Sherratt purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Ruth Sherratt chose Old Town
It is on the ground floor, so no dragging suitcases up several flights of stairs. It's very central, with excellent transport links and within walking distance to most of Edinburgh's sights. It is very quiet for such a central location. It is has rustic Victorian charm!
What makes this Apartment unique
It's close to everything! It's within 15 minute walk of the Castle, Grassmarket, Royal Mile, several theatres and cinemas, several small supermarkets and grocery stores, Princes Street shopping, Museum of Scotland, countless Fringe and Festival venues, several great restaurants, and to bus links and within 20 minutes walk of both main rail stations! Despite all that, it's an amazingly quiet street!

Apartment in Edinburgh center.
The apartment was very close to old town Edinburgh. We loved it because we could walk to many sights. It was a lovely, comfortable apartment. There were grocery stores close by so we could eat in if we wished. We even had a view of the castle from our bedrooms. I liked the historical atmosphere of the apartment.
This is a wonderful place to stay! Clean, spacious, perfect location!
Ruth has thought of everything you would need! Walking distance to Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, and Princes Street. I 1000% recommend her place!
Well equipped apartment close to all main attractions
Gaining access to the property was straightforward:using a key safe. Ruth, the host, gave us plenty of info about the apartment.
We walked to the Castle, Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, Princes St etc with no trouble. Plenty of utensils etc in kitchen & some basic supplies which make it easy to settle in quickly. There are a couple of small supermarkets within 10 minutes walk, as well as plenty of pubs.
Certainly would stay here again & will recommend it to family & friends.
Tidy little Old Town flat
A compact, well-situated flat that is perfect for a night or two in Edinburgh. Would happily stay again.
This was the perfect location for our stay in Edinburgh. It was walking distance to Edinburgh Castle and Lawnmarket. There was a great restaurant about a half block from the flat, with bus stops and grocery stores nearby.
The apartment had everything we needed including a welcome pack and toiletries. The kitchen was well stocked with all the appliances we needed.
There were toiletries and even washing machine detergent for us.
Ruth was an excellent hostess and helped us find medical help when my husband hurt his elbow.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to have a comfortable, convenient place to stay in a great neighborhood of Edinburgh.
Great location, wonderful stay
Lots of personality in this flat. Americans, don't be put off by the word "tenenent" in the description. In the UK it describes a vintage building type. Can't beat the location. Great stay.
