Pilrig House Apartments - The Garden Apartment (Sleeps 2 max.)

Perfect for:
Solo travellers (10% discount) or couples!

100% of reviewers said they would recommend Pilrig House to family/friends.

2016 - All VRBO guests stated that this is (by far) the best VRBO accommodation they have ever stayed in.

Our 4-star graded Garden Apartment is within Pilrig House, an A-listed 17th-Century Scottish Townhouse (built in 1638), which has an incredible history and a wonderful literary connection - it was once the home of Robert Louis Stevenson's mother's family - one of Scotland's most acclaimed authors! He mentions Pilrig House in his novels: Kidnapped and Catriona.

The Ultimate Peaceful Location
Uniquely located on the edge of a peaceful park, it is only a short stroll (just over a mile), or 5 minutes by bus, to Edinburgh's city centre and all the main attractions. The apartment overlooks private gardens and lush, green parkland - offering peace and tranquillity after busy days' sightseeing! Guests can enjoy sitting in the private garden, which has secluded seating areas, and is teeming with birds and squirrels - as well as the night-time strolls of our resident fox!

An Absolute Gem of an Apartment.
The Garden Apartment is cottagey, cosy, and charming. Beautifully furnished & extremely comfortable, the interior comprises: oak-floored hall with large cabinet filled with novels, games, CDs, DVDs; sunny living-room with oak flooring and Persian rug, window-seat offering garden views, plus second recessed window with garden & park views, 2 recliner seats and 2-seater sofa, dining-table, low tables, real-flame-effect fire, overhead dimmer lighting; spacious double bedroom, also with garden & park views - fully carpeted and with wardrobe, comfortable chair next to the window, dressing-table & seat, full-length mirror, bedside cabinets & touch-activated bedside lamps, overhead dimmer lighting; fully tiled bathroom with bath and shower over bath with glass shower screen, toilet, wash-hand basin, heated towel rail, lit wall mirror above sink with shaver point; and utterly charming, cottage-style kitchen (fully equipped - see Amenities/Facilities) - which has two cottage-style recessed windows and has everything you could possibly need or want in a kitchen!

Free Parking!
Plus, rare for Edinburgh accommodation - there is the bonus of an allocated FREE car parking space for guests in a safe, private car park to the rear of the house.

Your Home-Away-From-Home. Included in the Price:
Fine bedlinen, Egyptian cotton towels, fluffy towelling robes/slippers, all utilities (heating and electricity - there are no 'hidden/add-on' costs), telephone - FREE local & national calls, luxury Scottish toiletries, refreshment tray, fresh flowers, crystal decanter of whisky, fruit bowl, shortbread and fudge on arrival, full Welcome, Places to Visit, Restaurant and Edinburgh Tour Packs, up-to-date Tourist Information file, Pilrig House stationery, bookmarks & postcards, a selection of Books, CDs/DVDs, Edinburgh Guidebooks/DVDs and Maps, Walking Guides, Garmin SatNav, AA-Touring Atlas, board games, binoculars - and many other thoughtful extras!

The Owners
We - Debbie and Philip, the Scottish owners - live in Pilrig House and personally warmly welcome all our guests. We are also on-hand to offer advice and assistance throughout your stay, should you require it.

On our own website, you can read over 150 additional independent reviews, and view some typical Guestbook comments.

Membership of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society

During your stay, we are delighted to offer guests membership of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This entitles you to dine in either of the Society’s distinctive premises in Edinburgh – the historic Vaults at the Shore area of Leith - a 10-minute walk away, or in the city centre's beautiful Georgian townhouse Queen St premises - or to attend special events or tastings that may be on during your stay. Discover the best single cask, single malt whisky available – uniquely bottled for the Society from over 120 distilleries.

Near to the waterfront....

Pilrig House is under half a mile from the trendy 'Shore' area in the port of Leith - there are a great selection of pubs and eateries on the waterfront, as well as three Michelin-star restaurants. Also close-by is the Royal Yacht Britannia - the Queen & Prince Philip's decommissioned sailing vessel. Once there, you may want to stroll along to Newhaven Harbour and take lunch at the Loch Fyne Seafoood Restaurant, which has harbour and sea views.

Around a 4-min walk away is the Leith Mill & Clan Tartan shop - a great place to pick up a bargain; and the Water of Leith walkways and cycle-paths.

A short walk through the park takes you to the bus-stop - all buses (and they are plenty and almost constant) take you to the centre of Edinburgh, which is c. 1.2 miles away - easily walkable. En route, you may want to stop at the Sicilian Bakery - even if just to gaze in the window, or pause for coffee at Valvona & Crolla's Italian deli and 'Vin Cafe' - deliciously tempting!

The city centre attractions are well-known: Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, the Grassmarket area, The National Gallery, The Scottish Portrait Gallery, The Museum of Scotland, the Georgian New Town.... and so much more!

We are a 15-min walk (or 5 mins by bus) to: Edinburgh's Botanical Gardens; the 'village' of Stockbridge - so-named for its riverside location & great range of independent shops and charity/second-hand shops - great for browsing for a bargain! A fab weekly farmers' market is also held here, plus a start-point to a lovely riverside walk that takes you through the historic Dean Village and on to the Gallery of Modern Art.

The Majestic hop-on, hop-off bus tour stop is right outside the rear entrance to Pilrig House.

If you wanted to hire a cab, it is incredibly cheap to travel to and from the city centre.

Within 5-mins' walk from Pilrig House are: a leisure/gym centre with pool; local shops, supermarkets & restaurants; ATM; church; Post Office; Martin Wishart's Cookery School (Michelin-star restaurant owner), antiques store, and an auction-house with weekly auctions.

Pilrig House is also a 10-minute walk from the Playhouse Theatre, and a multi-screen cinema.

FREE Parking is also available to guests of Pilrig House, in a private car park to the rear of the property - this is extremely rare in Edinburgh and a huge bonus! We have prepared a Touring Pack for those guests with cars - which gives recommendations, maps, photographs, and tips of places to visit within a 1-2-hour drive of Edinburgh. Our AA-Road Atlas also comes in handy - and you are welcome to mark it up & take it with you on your car journeys. We do provide a SatNav in each apartment, so you can take that on your journeys with you...

For those without a car, and not keen on driving on 'the wrong side of the road', nor going on 'organised bus tours' - we are delighted to be able to offer the services of a personal driver when here - at very competitive rates!


East Lothian

Pilrig House is a great central base for golfers – wthin a half-hour drive along the lovely East Lothian coastline, you will be spolied for choice of courses to play: Craigielaw, Gullane, Archerfield, Muirfield, Dunbar, North Berwick – to name but a few of the outstanding 22 courses to pick from.

St Andrews and the East ‘Neuk’ of Fife - we are only an hour-and-a-half’s drive from St Andrews for St Andrews Old Course & King’s Barns, as well as the ‘East Neuk’ of Fife courses en route to St Andrews, eg Lundin Links.

Gleneagles, Carnoustie and Troon

We are an hour’s drive from Gleneagles; an hour-and-a-half from Carnousite; and c. 2 hours from the Ayrshire coast for Troon Old Course and Turnberry.

Book Our Golf Driver Service

If you want to relax, and be collected at Pilrig House and taken to and from the courses you want to play on, we are delighted to recommend, on booking, a personal driver service with an outstanding driver/golf expert (at extremely competitive rates). Mike will collect you at Pilrig House (as early in the morning as you want to set off) in his air-conditioned, fully insured and extremely comfortable people carrier and take you wherever you want to play. He can also take you further afield & arrange overnight stays for you. In fact, where golf is concerned, he will take you as far and for as much time as you fancy


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: 2017 will be our 12th year running Pilrig House Apartments... Philip is a retired mechanical engineer, who travelled the world as a naval engineer for many years - living in Mexico and Belize for periods of time. He is an historian, and has amazing local and Scottish historical knowledge... I am an ex-copy editor who worked for over 20 years in the field of publishing, and then on a freelance basis as an editor/proofreader. We decided, after meeting, that we couldn't bear to sell Philip's apartment in Pilrig House - it was just so special, and so we decided to turn it into a rental apartment. A year later, with great joy, we moved back into the house ourselves, then we purchased another apartment for renovation and rental, and so it just grew over the years... We have made many great friends, and still gain enormous joy and satisfaction in welcoming visitors here from around the world...It is also lovely that so many people, and their friends and families, come back time and time again. Our emphasis, right from the start, was to create incredibly well-equipped, clean, and exceptionally comfortable accommodation - and to maintain this high standard. We also wanted to ensure that we exceeded our guests’ needs. We always personally offer a warm welcome, and are really pleased to be able to provide further support your stay, if it is wanted! On arrival, we take you into the apartment, showing you all the need-to-know things, and will always take as long as you want to answer all your questions!

Why the Owner Chose Leith, Edinburgh, UK:
Well - there's the fact that Pilrig House is utterly unique as an historic 17th-century townhouse in Edinburgh located in a park - then there's the Edinburgh skyline views, the peace, the pretty gardens. Pilrig House also has a wonderful ambiance - it is just so special. There is much to enjoy about living here. We just couldn't replicate what Pilrig House offers if we searched the length and breadth of Edinburgh. And the fact that we can walk into the centre of Edinburgh in 15 mins, or take a bus right outside the park... more than anything, we love the feeling of living in the country while living in the city. In each apartment, the living-rooms and bedrooms have park and/or garden views – a lovely change from looking out onto city streets or other buildings! The house’s history also gives it a special feel – some people liken it to staying in a Scottish castle… Robert Louis Stevenson’s family lived in Pilrig House and he visited here often as a child – we include his novels in all three apartments, so you can read extracts that refer to Pilrig House, and imagine living in another time… One national newspaper journalist wrote after staying here that the house has a ‘timelessness’ that made for instant relaxation…. And, the centre of Edinburgh is under a mile away – most guests walk there, and sometimes take a bus home at the end of the day… and describe their pleasure at returning to the peace and tranquility of Pilrig House. Great shops are almost on your doorstep – supermarkets, cafes, bars, restaurants… all within easy walking distance. Many of our overseas guests come back every year. Our Guestbook comments and reviews on all independent sites have been 100% positive - hopefully reassuring you of what you will find when you come to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
All of the above! We awaken to birdsong, can gaze out our windows and see the park in all seasons, or sit in the garden to the side of the house in total privacy and enjoy the tranquility, and read a book... Everything we need is close-by - shops, transport links, restaurants, Edinburgh's main train station... and, there are beautiful drives to the East Lothian countryside and coastal trail, including some charming villages and historic castles - within a half-hour's drive. This coastline has 22 amazing golf-courses, many located directly parallel to the sea - Gullane, North Berwick, Craigielaw, Muirfield - to name but a few - to whet the appetite of those golfers out there! Another great bonus is the fact that we can offer guests free parking in a private car park directly to the rear of the property – this is incredibly rare in Edinburgh – most properties have ‘metered’ parking on a street outside their property, which never guarantees a space, and is incredibly expensive – it means you have to top up the metre every couple of hours! Philip and I often walk to the ‘Shore’ area of Leith, on the waterfront – which is Edinburgh’s port – a 5-10 minute walk from Pilrig House – it has great restaurants and bistros. You can also use your membership card to visit the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s ‘The Vaults’ premises here – even if you don’t like whisky – a great place to have a bar lunch in the oldest building in Leith.
