Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

A fabulous terraced cottage with private garden and spectacular views over the queen's park only minutes walk to the historic old town, dynamic earth, the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood palace. A perfect mix of city life and privacy with all mod cons!

All that Edinburgh has to offer such as the castle, grassmarket, Princes street, the Royal mile, Mary King's Close, St Giles cathedral etc are an easy walk away.

A foldable bed is available for a third guest but the cottage is best for two

Margaret’s cottage is a unique quite place in the middle of a town. It is just 10 minutes walk from the Royal mile. Everything is great inside a cottage and works perfectly. Had everything we needed for breakfast when we arrived, thank you Margaret!

Margaret's house was my first home when I arrive in Edinburgh to study and was the perfect start. The house is perfect, it has everything that you need and even more. You can walk for 10 minutes until Princes st and it is so peaceful.
