About Rona Ounsley

I was born in Montrose in the North East of Scotland and brought up in the small town of Forfar. I came to Edinburgh to study, met my husband and the rest is history! My husband comes from York but we both loved Edinburgh so much we couldn't bear to leave so we both found jobs in the city and we were able to buy a flat eventually, moving up the property ladder until we were able to buy both apartments at our current address.

Rona Ounsley purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Rona Ounsley chose Edinburgh

We originally lived in the Upper Villa and we were lucky to buy it from friends as we loved visiting them as the property has some beautiful original features - the cornicing in the drawing room won me over at first sight!

What makes this apartment unique

The view from the windows in the drawing room, the coal fire in the drawing room, the spacious rooms all make the Upper Villa feel like a home from home

Guestbook Comment

We had a great stay in this spacious accomodation, lots of room for 8 adults. Modernly updated while still maintaining lots of the old character. Good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area and the city centre is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. Would definately recommend this location.

Excellent apartment in a great locatron.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish this was a great holiday. The apartment was spacious warm and full of character. As a family holiday 10 of us comfortable fit in the generous living room. We saved money by cooking some of our own food in the well equipped kitchen. But there were many restaurants and bars in the stocksdale area and loads to choose in edinburgh a healthy 15 min walk. The owners were great from answering any queries to making sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
