Right in the heart of the Old Town, the flat is perfectly situated for easy access by foot to the whole city. On your doorstep, the famous Sandy Bells and Royal Oak round the corner if you like music! Well equipped wee flat and I had no troubles getting in and out. Kitchen well stocked and comfortable bed. Amazing views!
