New Town Fling, Plum Guide home in New Town Edinburgh

Click to book New Town Fling now: from £120 per night Right across the street from Edinburgh’s beautiful Queen Street Gardens, this chic apartment has everything you need for a relaxing stay in the city. With its tall ceilings, soft grey walls, dark wood floors and modern furnishings, there’s an elegant simplicity in the decor that makes you feel instantly at home. We love how the home has been carefully designed with space in mind, like the bespoke kitchenette, cleverly hidden within a cabinet, and the stairs up to the mezzanine bedroom creating a visual feature piece in their own right. After mornings enjoying breakfast at the window-side table and luxuriating under the rainfall shower, go out and explore your surroundings. You’ve got plenty of Edinburgh’s most iconic sights within easy walking distance, including Princes Street for great shopping (six minutes away), Edinburgh Castle for an afternoon of history (twelve minutes away) and Calton Hill for stunning sunset views over the city (fourteen minutes away).

Rooftop Reign

Rooftop Reign, Plum Guide home in Edinburgh

Click to book Rooftop Reign now: from £200 per night Edinburgh’s New Town is a wonderland of Georgian architecture, stunning stonework, and village-like quarters. While it might feel a world away from the city centre, this home is less than ten minutes from the heart of Princes Street – where sights, shopping, and scenery awaits. In an elegant Georgian building fronted by huge columns and gothic railings, this top-floor flat is at the height of style, and of the city. Despite its historic exterior, the decor is modern and understated. And your first stop upon entering has to be the panoramic views of rooftops and the glistening Firth of Forth from the lounge windows. Trust us, this stony scene looks even more dramatic on a famous Scottish rainy day. If you’re staying in, enjoy your own drizzle in the rainfall shower before cosying up on the plush sofa with a tea. For a local wander, visit the Dean Village, just twelve minutes away on foot. This picturesque neighbourhood, founded in the 12th century, is one of the most tranquil and beautiful spots in town. From here, head down to Stockbridge for pubs, cafés, and vintage shopping thirteen minutes from home. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

With its tall corniced ceilings, large sash windows and cobalt blue walls, you’ll instantly feel the home’s Georgian past with stylish modern furnishings giving it a good dose of modern flair. You’ll love kicking back on the sofa with a glass of wine while taking in your pad’s original features and sitting down to breakfasts at the sunny window-side table. The bedroom, meanwhile, is just as sophisticated with its uncluttered decor allowing its largesse to impress. We love the bay window seats here, perfect for catching up on some morning reading, and the bright desk area that will make working from home a treat. When you’re not relaxing in your chic apartment, go out and explore your surroundings. Shop along Princes Street (a six-minute walk away), stroll through Queen Street Gardens (two minutes) and visit Edinburgh Castle (twelve minutes).

Purple Reign, Plum Guide home in Edinburgh

Click to book Purple Reign now: from £100 per night Opulent yet cosy, the interior of this snug flat is reminiscent of a Scottish medieval castle – and it's more than fitting, considering the stunning views of Edinburgh Castle you'll have out the windows. From the exposed brick walls to the gothic grandeur of the antique four-poster bed, every nook and cranny here exudes charm and character. Complete with heaps of purple-thistle tartan and comfortable furnishings to snuggle up on (light the fire to make it extra cosy), this apartment has a distinctly Scottish feel that history buffs and tourists will love – and the location could not be better. This apartment is in the heart of Old Town, right on Grassmarket Square – one of the most popular streets in the city, home to charming pubs, lively bars and cosy cafes. Step out the front door and you'll see the castle looming overhead (it's just a five-minute walk to Castlehill), while sights like the National Museum of Scotland and Princes Street Gardens are less than ten minutes on foot. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Yonder Hill, Plum Guide home in Edinburgh

Click to book Yonder Hill now: from £90 per night Everyone knows Calton Hill. You know the one – splashed across Instagram and guide book covers, it's the poster child for Edinburgh's UNESCO-recognised city centre. This two-bed apartment sits at the foot of said famous hill, so you'll get the jump on the legions of tour groups, even catch the sunrise if you wish. Calton Hill not high enough for you? The leg-stretching trail to the top of Arthur’s Seat is a short walk away too with equally Insta-worthy views from the top. Gorgeous inside and out, you've got two outdoor spaces to choose from. Sip wine or a nip of something stronger on the sunken patio, and serve your Burns supper on the bistro table in the walled garden. Two luxurious bathrooms come with a rainfall shower and a deep soaking tub, respectively. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
