Cosy and charming, this first-floor apartment boasts views of Edinburgh Castle. Alongside the historic panoramas, we love the sense of space here – three sumptuous bedrooms, a large kitchen, and a comfortable lounge provide ample room for family gatherings. There's even a small workspace if you're travelling on business. And, of course, the location is brilliant. You'll be a five-minute walk from buzzing Princes Street, while the Royal Mile and other Old Town attractions are just a bit further. Plan on driving? While no allocated parking is provided, a public car park is just across the street.

About New Town

Edinburgh’s New Town isn’t new at all – it’s a glorious example of 18th-century Georgian town planning and architecture that has rightfully earned its UNESCO World Heritage Status. There’s a lot more than beautiful architecture on offer here though. Located in the centre of the city, it’s a short walk from Waverley Station, and well serviced by public transport. Princes Street, George Street, St Andrew’s Square, and the West End...
