A wonderful opportunity to stay in a National Trust property located in the Old town with spectacular views of the Castle and 360 views of the city. This spacious apartment oozes with history & charm and was home to Sir Patrick Geddes in Circa 1890.
A very special apartment oozing with old worldly charm! Very spacious Arts and Crafts style period 1890 apartment. Built by Sir Patrick Geddes the apartment has many original features and is situated right next door to Edinburgh Castle in the old town at the top of the royal mile.
The apartment has been carefully restored retaining many of the original features and has been furnished in the traditional style.
Absolutely Wonderful location with outstanding 360 degree views across Edinburgh including probably the best views of the castle in the city right next door.
