Where you’ll be

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

This apartment is an ideal base from which to explore the city. The Old Town is a few minutes' walk away: a warren of closes and side streets lead from the Grassmarket to the Royal Mile. The Edinburgh College of Art is just along the road from the apartment.

The apartment is situated in Tollcross, an atmospheric area of the city centre, which with its great variety of shops and eating and drinking places is a popular area to live in.

It's a short walk through the Grassmarket or Lauriston Place and Greyfriars to the Royal Mile, the backbone of medieval Edinburgh, which connects Edinburgh Castle at one end with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Parliament at the other. (Royal Mile is the combined name for the street formed by Castlehill, Lawnmarket, High Street and Canongate.) Edinburgh's main visitor attractions are on your doorstep and the neighbourhood is full of attractive independent shops and restaurants, bars and cafés to suit all budgets, from cheap and cheerful pizzerias to fine dining establishments. The Hub (the official centre for the Edinburgh International Festival) and the Festival Fringe office are on the Royal Mile, and you can easily walk to many Festival venues; the Usher Hall, Royal Lyceum Theatre, Traverse Theatre, Filmhouse and Dance Base are all only a few minutes' walk away. You are also ideally placed to enjoy the Christmas and Hogmanay/New Year festivities. Edinburgh Farmers’ Market takes place every Saturday morning only a short stroll from the apartment.

Not far away is the Union Canal, perfect for a waterside walk; you can go all the way to Glasgow if you want, but you might prefer the more convenient distractions of the bars and cafes in the canal basin at Edinburgh Quay.

The apartment is close to the Meadows. The Meadows were originally under water: the Burgh Loch, which was drained in 1740, was one of Edinburgh’s main water supplies. The area is now one of the city’s biggest green spaces, ideal for jogging, walking and other sports. There are public tennis courts, a children’s playpark and Bruntsfield Links Golf Course, one of the oldest courses in the world, where you can have a round of pitch-and-putt.
