Ground Floor Flat close to the beach and Edinburgh City Centre
Grew up in Musselburgh, living with partner Kevin and son Matt, working from home as a Mortgage Adviser
Mhairi purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Mhairi chose Musselburgh
This is my home and I love it because it is quiet, close to the beach and nice walks, and yet only twenty minutes from all the excitement that Edinburgh which is a fabulous city has to offer. There are loads of wonderful restaurants in Edinburgh and it is such a vibrant city at any time of year.
What makes this Apartment unique
I loved the property because it was quirky and had the annexe flat below and because of its proximity to Edinburgh. It is tucked away behind some trees and lovely and private and quiet. Not to mention the wonderful walk along the beach to the harbour or field and forest walk around Newhailes estate, both of which are very close to the property. Bus service to Edinburgh is excellent.

It was wonderful just what we needed and the owners were so helpful and kind. The property was only minutes from the beach. Mairia made us scones for breakfast one morning. Best stay ever.
Lovely apartment very homely
Initially a little difficult to find but once found the hosts were friendly and informative. We just stayed 2 nights while some of the family competed in the Edinburgh Half marathon/10K
we had everything we needed - an enjoyable stay
Absolute gem and so close to Edinburgh
Lovely ground floor unit in leafy setting. Quiet location with easy walk to beach, Musselburg shops ,eateries and quick bus trip to Edinburg. Mahairi and Kevin were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed knowing they were nearby.
Home away from Home
Mhairi our host, is a delightful friendly and welcoming lady. Our apartment for our months stay was bright, clean and had all the comforts of home. We did not hire a car during our stay as the excellent bus service is a four minute walk and you can buy a day ticket for £4.00 this ticket takes you to many of the surrounding towns and villages. Edinburgh is only 20 minutes by bus......perfect as trying to take your car into Edinburgh is a nightmare and parking it even worse. Great bus service with frequent buses. The beach is only a two minute walk and I have enjoyed many walks to Fisherrow Harbour and seen many sunrises and sunsets. I also walked along the road to Portobello Beach and just over the road there is a lovely woodlands walk , if you enjoy walking or strolling along you have many choices from this great location During our stay Mhairi has spoilt my husband and I with delicious home baked scones, jam and cream, shortbread This apartment has everything to make your stay comfortable We would highly recommend Mhairi’s delightful apartment and we are both rather sad to leave this morning . We only hope out next stay in Aberdeenshire is as clean, bright and comfortable as this has been, a very heartfelt thank you Mhairi We would recommend your home to all. Thanks again for a memorable stay. Jan and Eddie Gray
Great Location Near Edinburgh
This is a delightfully quiet flat, just a 25 minute bus ride from downtown Edinburgh. The sand beach is less than a minute's walk away and was perfect for an evening walk. The host lives upstairs and was very prompt in replying to emails. This was my wife's favorite place we stayed at while on a two week trip to Scotland.
Adon thank you so much for the great review. Glad you all had a great time and who knows, we may see you back again in the future. Best wishes Mhairi
