He had responded to all my mails very promptly and gave me useful tips on bus routes etc. We found it easy to follow the route map he sent and we walked from the...

Management response:

Thank you, your comments are most heartening and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh and your visit to the Highlands. It was a pleasure to meet you and your highly talented family. Mark is a fine name but sadly it's actually Mike.

This is a comfortable and well equipped house just off The Royal Mile. An additional bonus is a garage for your use. We were met at the house by Mike who showed us round. There are folders in the sitting room with much information and instruction leaflets. Would certainly recommend this property .

Management response:

Many thanks for staying and very best wishes to you and yours.

About the neighbourhood
Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is one of the UK's most popular destinations for visitors. It is a beautiful city, with architecture that is renowned throughout the world. However, Edinburgh is historically important too, having a major role in both Scottish and British history for hundreds of years.
