Set within a Victorian town house built in 1900, the apartment boasts a spectacular view of the Edinburgh skyline and its famous landmarks.

The property has high ceilings, generous room sizes, solid wood flooring throughout, and some traditional features such as the ceiling cornicing.

The apartment has been refreshed and newly furnished to create a stunning space and the perfect base from which to explore this wonderful city. The interior is very much design led, and heavily influenced by mid-20th century and in particular Scandinavian design. It is modern, minimalist, simple, functional and furnished to an exceptional standard.

The apartment also enjoys a small enclosed garden to the rear of the property. Please note that the single beds are smaller than standard single beds and therefore may not be suitable for large adults.

Car parking is available directly outside the property. Charges apply from Monday-Friday 8.30am - 5.30pm. There is no charge during evenings and weekends.


The property is located roughly 250 metres from the East Gate entrance to the Royal Botanic Gardens (free admission).

There is a frequent and very quick bus service to/from the city near the entrance to the Gardens, or the city can be reached on foot in 20-25 mins.

Within 0.5km of the flat are a number of pubs, cafes, restaurants, take aways, and a Tesco Superstore open until 10pm, 7 days a week. For those with special dietary requirements, the store has a good variety of organic and "free from" products also available.

At the end of the street, one can also access Edinburgh's fabulous "QuietRoutes". QuietRoutes are Edinburgh's network of walking and cycling paths, perfect for exploring the city and avoiding the busy main roads.

Other must-see local attractions include Fettes College which is undeniably one of Scotland's greatest buildings, and Dean Village which is a beautiful oasis right by the water of Leith. From the apartment, there's a lovely path running alongside the Water of Leith most of the way to Dean Village, and on route you will pass through Stockbridge which is a vibrant suburb with an excellent selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Couldn’t fault the place and location The only thing we had to think about was the parking as we were staying for 4 nights Parking meters were a maximum of 4 hours so we found free parking just ten minutes away We would love to stay again when we come to Edinburgh. Thank you

Our family of four stayed here for a week while visiting family in Edinburgh. The location is great - it's a short walk over to a network of walking trails that make it easy to get around the city without crossing busy streets. There are plenty of shops and parks nearby. The apartment itself has high ceilings with lots of light, and is well-appointed.

Beautiful flat in a fantastic location! Only a couple of minutes to the botanical gardens, lots of nice shops and cafes nearby. A nice walk into the city centre. Plenty of on-street parking nearby.

A stunning flat in easy distance of town by bus, free weekend parking was wonderful. Ringo App worked easily but you do have to move the car after 4 hrs. The decoration of the flat is amazing and the double bed was lovely. We really did enjoy having access to the Edinburgh sites. Great to be able to see my family. Ate at Taisteal (Modern European) in Forth Street an easy stroll home and in La Locanda ( Italian) in Cockburn Street both very nice eateries!
