Fabulous large Georgian double upper apartment located in the heart of the Newington, whose parks / cafes / bars and shops make it a favourite district of Edinburgh. The large bright property is ideally placed to enjoy the best of Edinburgh's attractions with the minimum of hassle. Many of the main venues / attractions are a stone's throw from the flat, and others, like the castle, Royal Mile and the main shopping areas are easily reached on foot in less than 20 minutes or around 10 minutes by using the frequent bus service which stops outside the door and takes you directly into the heart of the central shopping area. The apartment has been redecorated over the last few years, and although it has been tastefully modernised it retains many attractive period features, such as original fire...Fabulous large Georgian double upper apartment located in the heart of the Newington, whose parks / cafes / bars and shops make it a favourite district of Edinburgh.

About the neighbourhood
Newington is a hugely popular neighbourhood to the south of the city centre, served by excellent local amenities including a wide range of everyday and speciality shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. Many festival fringe venues are located within walking distance. Leisure facilities are plentiful with the Royal Commonwealth Pool and the green open spaces of the Meadows, Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Park, and several golf courses close by. Local cultural venues include Festival Theatre, Queen's Hall and the Scottish Parliament with many more, such as the castle and Royal Mile just a short walk away.
How to get there
The flat is easily reached whether you are arriving in Edinburgh by plane, train, tram, bus, taxi or private car. Since the trams started operating in 2014, the journey has become even easier with regular, direct connections between the airport and the city centre where a short bus or taxi ride will take you directly to the flat.
