Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
Edinburgh, Scotland
The Writers Pad has been designed around Edinburgh's rich literary heritage. This New Town property has many a nod and a wink to the writers that have graced the city. This garden apartment offers a great place to stay close to the town centre and many local attractions and has undergone an extensive renovation in early 2014.

The owners were helpful and kind. Has a cute little backyard area to sit and relax. Has a front little porch. One bathroom and no dryer. Internet works great! Walking to Old Town is about 2O minutes uphill. But coming home is easy!!!! Cafes nearby. Safe area. Three ladies stayed here and had a great time! Taxis can be there...
