On the Royal Mile, the apartment is ideally located for exploring the City of Edinburgh. Within 200 metres of both Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building, it is a perfect base for sightseeing on foot.

Alternatively, Edinburgh bus tours pass outside the building and are the ideal way to see the city and the major attractions during a city break.

Almost all of Edinburgh's main attractions are within easy walking distance, including the Castle, museums, major galleries, Festival and Fringe venues, and Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. There are many places to eat and drink close to the property.
