    Additional Location Information
    The Scottish capital is one of the most beautiful and atmospheric cities in the world with the Castle dominating our incredible skyline. The Royal Mile, where our flat is located, is right in the centre of the Old town-the medieval centre of Edinburgh and an absolutely perfect place to explore our breathtaking City from. The Castle is a 10 minute walk away. With both the Old town and the Georgian New town Edinburgh offers you an amazing range of architectural and cultural experiences. Step out your front door and step back in time. Explore the nooks and crannies of the Royal Mile and you’ll be amazed what you discover - from Mary Kings Close to the Contemporary architecture of the Scottish Poetry Library. The city buzzes in August with a plethora of arts and cultural festivals. There is literally something for everyone from classical ballet to juggling street performers. An ideal place for a short break or having visited we are sure you will want to come back for a longer period

We wanted to extend our stay but it was booked ahead for some weeks, always a good sign. Fully recommend and we thoroughly enjoyed our time, thank you Beth and... more

We visited Edinburgh and outlying areas as a wedding anniversary trip. Having never visited Scotland previously, we were fortunate to have found the Storytelling Apartment. The location was perfect as it is centrally located to the major historic attractions and dining and shopping venues. The innkeepers met us precisely as they had stated, and we found the apartment to be... more

We stayed in the 3rd floor “storytelling apartment” for one week (May 18-24) and the combination of wonderful owners/landlords, superb location, and outstanding accommodations made for a lovely time. The apartment is neat and clean, but not lavish. Located on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile (at 8 High Street) one is within easy walking distance of many of the area’s attractions. Eateries,... more
