We spent a great weekend at Atholl Brae near the end of november. The flat was really cosy and the fact that the car was out of the way for the weekend in the garage was good. The location is great and the whole family enjoyed doing the sights and the christmas market.If you want a good central location we can highly recommend this flat

The location of this apartment couldn't be more perfect - just off the Royal Mile, at the quieter end, and within easy walk to the castle, Waverly Station, the main shopping area and Holyrood Palace. The apartment itself is perfectly equipped and the owners have provided everything necessary for their visitors (including a bottle of champagne and some Scottish shortbread on arrival as a welcome package). There is also a car parking space although driving around Edinburgh is challenging, especially during festival time.
I would definitely stay here again when I return to Edinburgh. Thank you Elizabeth for a wonderful stay!
This apartment was perfect for our needs. Super convenient to the Royal Mile, comfortable, and extremely spacious. Liz was helpful in working with our arrival schedule as well as offering suggestions on where to eat and visit. This apartment is situated closer to Holyrood than the castle so definitely a plus for those who enjoy hiking to Arthur's Seat. This is definitely where we plan to stay if (when!) we ever return to Edinburgh.
Atholl Brae apartment is in a great location, a one minute walk from the main street on the Royal Mile. The apartment is more upscale than the building in which it's housed, and stocked with movies, games, and even a bottle of bubbly in the fridge. The neighbors (other tourists?)can be a little loud at night, but that may have been a one-time occurance. It was very clean except for a few oversights, like crumbs in the freezer and wood floors in need of mopping, which I attribute to the fact that the young male half of the owner couple was doing the cleaning when we arrived! Otherwise the apartment appears well-maintained and regularly scrubbed.
I would definately recommend this apartment it is so local to everything!
Liz the owner was so helpful and replied to all my e-mails trying best she could to help accomidate us and even if it wasn't possible she gave us another option.
She advised us from where was good to go in edinburgh to where to leave our luggage on our last day whilst we waited to go to the airport!
The apartment was clean and perfect for the four of us, however there was also a sofa bed and a camp bed so you could easily have another 3 people stay. We were very impressed with the facilities in the apartment and there was even a bottle of fizz in the fridge whitch went down very well with 4 women :)
I would stay here again and would recommend it to my friends!
