This is a lovely, centrally-located flat with wooden flooring throughout and an open fireplace. In a stylish part of the City with local cafes, restaurants, bars and shops on your doorstep and excellent public transport.

The 'Colonies' of Abbeyhill are an historic area over 150 years old. The houses were built to house workers, and retain their well-constructed charm. All the streets are dead-ends, with pedestrian access only, so are very quiet. Each house has a garden, rare in the city centre, so the street is full of trees and flowers.

The neighbourhood is great with lots of amenities such as restaurants and artisan bakeries just round the corner. It's also so close to the oldest and most historic parts of Edinburgh and still only a 15 minute walk to the train station and Princes Street. Ideal for exploring Edinburgh, visiting the festivals and having a great time in one of the world's greatest cities!

A large Sainsbury supermarket is a 5 minute walk as well as a variety of other local shops and cafes on Easter Road.

I grew up on the Isle of Skye before leaving for the brightlights of Glasgow and am now based in Edinburgh. I still like to get out into the mountains as much as possible as well as being a fan of the sea. I was definitely spoilt growing up! As a big fan of adventure sports you'll see some form of sports equipment hanging on the walls in the flat (whatever I'm not using at that point in time).
