Where you’ll be

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Situated in the beautiful & distinct Shore district of the city. You are on the doorstep of the Historical Port of Leith. Now not so much a working port, the last 20 years have seen this area undergo much change and it has emerged as one of the jewels in Edinburgh's crown. Sophisticated Cocktail Bars mix with Traditional Scottish Boozers. Michelin Star Restaurants mix with an abundance of traditional Scottish fayre. From seafood platters to Asian banquets. From Pizza to Fish & Chips. This is all within 5 minutes of your property. Also close by is the well maintained riverside cycle path and walkways which can give you a more serene traffic free journey around the city and also allow to cycle out of the city for the day to some great tourist spots. being a cyclist myself I am more than happy to offer a great overview of your cycling options. If you were Looking to hire a bicycle during your stay there are options to lock your bike up within the common stairwell. In terms of amenities you are within 5 minutes walk of a major supermarket as well as a handy shopping precinct. You are also 2 minutes walk from many delis, coffee & breakfast bars who serve the local working population. Also close by is the Ocean Terminal shopping & entertainment complex. This has shops, restaurants, bars and a multiplex cinema. It also offers great views of the City & Firth of Forth from it's rooftop car parks (local tip)

About me. I am an Edinburgh citizen (Edinburgher). Leith is where I have chosen to settle. Knowingly rough around the edges, no other part of the city offers such a wide social and cultural diversity. this is real Edinburgh. I bought my property in 2011 and have slowly been getting it into a position where it can really be called home. I do get out at the weekend. Mostly pubs and some live music. Music is a huge part of my life. I have collected music for 30 years (underground & independent). I DJ'd extensively around the city in the 90s. I have a small amateur music studio in my flat and have been making electronic music for over 10 years now. I enjoy many other cultural pursuits with Edinburgh offering much in this regard. I have a mostly vegetarian diet and take much interest in the environment. I have a fairly well honed sense of humour and really enjoy having a laugh with people. I hope that gives you a reasonable insight into who i am. in terms of being a host. i'm very easy going and fairly liberal. assuming there are no victims I believe in human & free choice over political or theological interference. 420 friendly

During your stay

I do work full time but always like to take sometime off during the Edinburgh festival to enjoy as much of it as I can myself. I have grown up in Edinburgh. This gives me a great knowledge of the city and it's surroundings and i'm more than happy to make suggestions & offer assistance. I am friendly, knowledgeable and outgoing. Outwith work I have great interest in music & art with music production being a small hobby of mine. I am very familiar with a great deal of architecture throughout the city. I am familiar with all the different areas of the city and what alternative options they can offer the traveler who may care to get off the beaten track and sample something different than the usual castles & history perspective. I have good knowledge of public transport & links throughout Scotland. I can be as friendly or as invisible and discreet as you would wish. My time in the flat would be spent getting up for work then more than likely preparing food & a little tidying most early evenings. I have a reasonable social life. I play some sport and cycle to and from work. I also like to socialize & do visit friends, family or indeed the local bars from time to time. particularly during the festival.
