Lovely leafy flat with fabulous views over the city to the castle.
I have recently moved out of this first floor 2-bedroom flat, and it's ready for holiday guests. It has one double bedroom, one single bedroom, and a sofabed in the living room which sleeps one (it's a small double). There is a bathroom and a kitchen-diner. There is free on-street parking.
The number 11 bus is close by and takes about 20 minutes to get to the centre of Edinburgh.

Our stay at Alison's flat was amazing. The place is a wonderful base for exploring the city -- and we exceedingly profited from Paddy's advice for our ensuing trip to the Highlands. Highly recommended!
