Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

The apartment is located in the 'Old Town' - right in the heart of Edinburgh.

Everywhere is walkable from this address. It is within 10 minutes walk to the Castle, Royal Mile, Grassmarket & Princes Street.

There are various supermarkets very nearby.

There are many amazing bars, restaurants and cafes all around the area. In fact, one of Tom Kitchen's (Michelin Starred) restaurants, 'Castle Terrace Restaurant', is just around the corner.

The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Usher Hall and Traverse Theatres are literally on your door step.
Three of Edinburgh's main Cinemas are within walking distance, one of which, the Filmhouse (host to the Edinburgh Film Festival) is less than a 5 minute walk away. The Filmhouse cafe also does very good lunches at a reasonable price.

Edinburgh's Old Town history dates back to the time when Malcolm III Canmore (died 1093) after building his castle, and a chapel for his wife, Queen Margaret within its walls - now the oldest building in the city.

The Abbey at Holyrood, built by her son David I, and the castle became focal points of Edinburgh and a thriving community grew along side the road between them, now known as The Royal Mile.

It was from the 1500s that the town became established as the capital of Scotland, as the inhabitants, choosing to stay in proximity to the protection of the castle, built tall narrow buildings along a stretch known as Castlehill.

The area is also a great base for exploring further afar, with easy west-of-city access to both the Forth Road Bridge/North and Glasgow/M8.
