Interaction with guests
We live close by and can be contacted before and during your stay. We usually use a key box, but we are more than happy to meet you and show you the apartment if you prefer. If we can't meet you in person we have a key box we can use, with very clear instructions & pictures to help guide you. We are both sociable and have lived in Edinburgh and Scotland for most of our lives so can offer you plenty tips on the best places to eat, drink and visit while enjoying your time in Edinburgh.

Thistle Street is in a prime location in Edinburgh’s New Town, right in between the area’s most famous streets (Princes Street, George Street, and Queen Street). Thistle Street is an atmospheric cobble stoned street lined with independent boutiques, chic bars and great restaurants, so you’ll always be walking distance to shop / eat / visit Edinburgh's famous sites. Edinburgh Castle and The Royal Mile are minutes away on foot. Young Street is only a block away, and here you can find The Oxford Bar, famous for featuring in local crime writer Ian Rankin’s Inspector Rebus novels. Slightly farther along is Charlotte Square, site of Bute House, the official residence of the First Minister of Scotland. The square contains a large private garden.
