We are very pleased to offer our lovely flat for your special stay in Edinburgh.
There are 3 full-sized double bedrooms (2 doubles and a twin-bedded), as well as a large sitting room, equipped with 2 sofas, chairs, a 32inch TV and A DVD player.
The kitchen is as large as the other rooms and has a dining table to seat 6 people(8 if you want to invite guests).
We do not expect you to have to sleep in the sitting room.
The benefits of living up here are apparent as soon as you are in the flat. It is light and spacious, with a wonderful view of the granite crag and the castle, straight ahead from the living room window and from the bedroom at the front.
The flat is very central. It is only 10 minutes up to the Royal Mile, where Edinburgh Castle is situated. Also a short walk will get you to these other attractions:
Princes Street Gardens
Grey Friar's Bobby
The National Gallery of Scotland
Royal Scottish Academy
The National Museum of Scotland(situated in an award winning modern building)
A little further afield - maybe 30 mins walk will get you to:
The Scottish Parliment
Our Dynamic Earth Museum
Holyrood Park with Arthur's Seat(a stiff climb to the top, if you want some fresh air and exercise. Remember to bring trainers or walking boots!)
Carlton Hill with its Folly(this is straight on from Princes Street).
The Botanical Gardens
There are 2 theatres and a concert hall across the road - so close you could come home for you interval drinks.
These are The Royal Lyceum Theatre, The Usher Hall and The Traverse Theatre.
When you make your booking I will send you more details on what to enjoy in Edinburgh.

If you arrive by plane, the best way into town is by shuttle. Get a return ticket for £6 (one way is £4). This will drop you off at the top of the Lothian Road, near the end of Princes Street. It is then 10 minutes walk to the flat.
