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?).

When you exit the flat you have the choice of climbing the Castle Wynd Steps to the Royal Mile and the Castle or entering the well preserved cobbled streets and med...

We stayed for a long weekend and the apartment was perfect – clean, spacious, and bright, with an amazing view of the castle and a small balcony. The kitchen is very well-equipped. The location is very central – within walking distance of all that Edinburgh has to offer. I would definitely recommend the apartment and would stay here again!

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. For an additional £10 a high chair and travel cot can be provided. One side of the spacious apartment has a double bed ready made for you. A couch on the other side of the room converts into a double bed for convenience. As you sit at the dining table or on the small balcony, you look out on Edinburgh Castle. Because the flat is situated on the castle side of the Grassmarket, it enjoys a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Come and stay at Castle View and enjoy a nice glass of wine looking out... more

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.
