Review of Whitehorse Close

Located off Canongate, and a few steps across from the Scottish Parliament, this is one of Edinburgh's most photogenic - and photographed closes. (Must be nice to live here.)

Passed by here on a walk yesterday afternoon with my wife on our way down the Royal Mile, just before paying a visit to The Scottish Parliament.
It is an enclosed courtyard off the Canongate, near to the bottom of the Royal Mile.
We were purely drawn to it by the 'close's' attractiveness from the outside while walking by and just had to grab a couple of photos!
Not much more to say about it really, other than it is a nice picturesque little spot to stop and have a brief look at if you are passing this area en route to/from somewhere else.

Lovely apartment and a great location just a shame that the landlord was so slow to reply to comms. It took 2 weeks and numerous emails and texts to get my £100 deposit refunded. Also the bedroom and kitchen overlook a busy cobbled road. Take some earplugs if you are a light sleeper.

This is a pretty closr just off Canongate. it is often photographed, and you can see why. It has been preserved in an attractive way in spite of its proximity to the rest of the city. We only needed a few minutes to see it, but it is worth calling in once you are in this part of Edinburgh.
