Overview

Studio , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Edinburgh, Scotland
The flat sits in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town Area called The Grassmarket. Its simply bursting with some of the best shopping Edinburgh has to offer. The area is full to brimming with Scottish Designers, Artisans and independent merchants selling everything from luxurious knitwear to cutting edge fashions, antique books and unique gifts. Most shops are owner operated giving you that personal touch.

Grassmarket is the home of some of the best restaurants and famous pubs with dark Edinburgh history dating back to the notorious days of the grave robbers Burke and Hare and the touching story of GreyFriars Bobby (Why not play the DVD which is in the apartment?).

Additional amenities & feature info
The studio flat has been recently renovated with holiday lets in mind and as you can see from the photographs is very spacious. The self catering facilities are excellent with a full sized built in hob and oven, microwave and dishwasher. This apartment is best enjoyed by couples or parents with children.

About the neighbourhood
Walk round the corner from the flat and enter Princes Street Gardens, below the Castle, remembering to give a pat to Bum The Dog – a memorial to a famous American Dog! The Gardens are a wonderful place to have a picnic, play area for the children, feed the squirrels or just read the paper.

As you leave the flat at the Grassmarket, just in front of you, there is a bus stop and a local bus that takes you to the Port of Leith and the mooring of the Royal Yacht Britannia – well worth a visit!

How to get there
Airport: Edinburgh Airport: 4.0 km
Railway: Waverley Station: 1.0 km
Edinburgh Airport has fantastic links to the city centre. When you arrive in the city centre we are only a few minutes walk away. Or why not jump on one of the fantastic tour buses (many of which drive right past the apartment).

We are also very convenient for both Waverley and Haymarket Train Stations, both of which are within a mile.
