The space
Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, just off the Royal Mile this home from home is a light and airy period property. It offers unrivalled access to all that Edinburgh has to offer: among others, the Castle, the Palace, John Knox’s House, St Giles' Cathedral and the Scottish Parliament are all within easy walking distance.

There are some great bars and restaurants in the area (see overview) but, if you want to dine at home, the flat boasts a fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need to prepare a home-cooked meal.

We do technically have enough room for an eighth person to sleep as well and have done this before but it's a bit of a squeeze! The sofa is big enough for someone to sleep on and we also have an inflatable mattress plus the sofa bed is good for two children or slightly smaller adults, as it's not super-wide... NB there is only one bathroom/shower/toilet.

Guest access
You'll have access to the whole flat, so it's ideal for a group of friends or family.

Other things to note
The smaller bedroom at the front is above St Mary's street, with regular cars passing and only the shutters and curtains for noise insulation, so if you are sensitive to noise, you may want to bring ear-plugs.

The bigger bedroom is at the back of the building and much quieter.

Location

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

There are plenty of options for places to eat near the flat, including a good brasserie just downstairs / in front called Circus cafe. We also have a more extensive guide to edinburgh eating/drinking etc (in the flat).

St Mary's Street has two award winning restaurants: Empires, a warm and inviting Turkish haven and Stac Polly, a beautifully decorated dining room serving exquisitely prepared Scottish delights. And local pubs the World’s End has bags of character. There are supermarkets in the area but the closest grocery shop is just up the road on the corner/Royal Mile.

Beaches: Edinburgh’s closest beach is at Portobello, a 10-minute drive from the centre. A little further afield, within a 20-minute drive, you'll find Seton Sands and further still (40-minute drive) Aberdour's Silver Sands (a bit of local favourite). The East Coast, within a 30-minute drive towards North Berwick, also has beautiful beaches to explore

Golf facilities: The home of golf, St Andrew's is a 90-minute drive away and well worth a visit, whether you are a golf enthusiast or not. The golf course and university are world famous and the beaches are beautiful.
