Welcome to the Mapmakers Townhouse, where fascinating Edinburgh history and imposing architecture meets modern luxury, space, light and attention to detail. Lovingly renovated by the owner who has “poured his heart in to it and has thought of every single detail to make our experience a fantastic one”. For history buffs, this townhouse’s credentials are second to none, for it once formed part of the impressive premises of the famous Bartholomew Mapmakers firm, situated in Duncan Street from 1911 – 1995.

Lovingly renovated by the owner who has “poured his heart in to it and has thought of every single detail to make our experience a fantastic one”. For history buffs, this townhouse’s credentials are second to none, for it once formed part of the impressive premises of the famous Bartholomew Mapmakers firm, situated in Duncan Street from 1911 – 1995. Skilled craftsmen and women worked within the light filled and spacious building to produce world famous maps, maintaining Bartholomew’s reputation as one of Scotland's most influential map making firms. The imposing building has a Palladian façade c1780, taken stone by stone from the former Morningside family home Falcon Hall. With excellent restaurants, shops and traditional Edinburgh pubs favoured by locals, within easy walking distance. Step out of the townhouse doors and you'll truly feel like a local. Go for a walk up Arthur's Seat and round Holyrood Park, visit the iconic Summerhall arts complex, have coffee in Hugo's cafe near Meadows park or entertain the family at the recently redeveloped Commonwealth swimming pool and sport centre. The atmospheric Royal Mile is about 20 minutes walk from the apartment and the city centre is within walking distance or a short bus or taxi ride away. For great days out drive out of town to visit the many Midlothian attractions such as Roslyn Chapel or the beaches of East Lothian. This property has FREE parking which is rare bonus within Edinburgh. -Booking Requirements- The Edinburgh Address reserve the right to vet any booking.

How to get there
However you choose to arrive please do make sure that you have spoken to the 'property manager' to arrange a time to meet you at the property on arrival as there is no reception area or onsite staff to assist you if you arrive without notice. - Executive Car transfer Wanting to arrive in style and relax after your fight. The Edinburgh Address can organise a transfer in a luxury Mercedes for up to 8 guests for £57.00. - Airport Black Taxi This option is better if you are travelling in a small group as a taxi from the airport to the west end of Princes Street is about £18 to £20 dependant on the time of day and traffic. So its not much more just to get a taxi straight to the property.
