About M

Hi

I am Moira married with 4 grown up children.

My husband works for an American Company and we like to travel as much as possible and love meeting new people and experiencing their different cultures..

Why M chose Bonnington

I bought this property as it is in a Great local area where you can Walk into The City Centre in 10/15 Minutes going up The Vibrant Broughton Street and all it has to offer. It has lively bars, eclectic little shops, bakeries, famous butcher, lovely restaurants and at the top of this street you are in The City Centre.

It is also a short walk going the opposite way from town to Canonmills where there are many lovely cafes, bars and shops and you can also walk by The Water of Leith.

The Royal Botanic Gardens is nearby where you can have wonderful walks and there is a Cafe there with Home made Goodies if you feel like a little refreshment.

A 10 minutes Walk from there is the celebrated little village of Stockbridge again with many Bars, cafes Deli's and small shops.

Very good flat and good hostess

  • 5 out of 5
We were in Moira's flats in June 2013. Overall impression is very good. In details: hosting was organized very well, we find a flat very easy, and Moira’s friend met us, leave the key, explained everything. Flat location is good - it is 15 minutes by walk to city center and other interesting places, flat is in quiet place, big Tesco is 3 minutes by walk. Flat itself is very suitable and good, kitchen is fully equipped, very clean, and everything is in good condition. Flat is very nice and pleasant. I recommend this flat.

Highly recommended, very clean and comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
I had a really great stay at this property. Moira the landlady could not be more helpful or accommodating. The property itself is small and cosy but more than adequate for a stay of even up to a few months. Moira has kitted it out so you have everything you need eg kitchen equipment, and she has decorated it in a really nice and welcoming style. Great shower and loo, lovely kitchen. The bedroom and lounge are a good size too.
It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the east end of Princes Street so nice and central. There is a big Tesco just down the road which is handy. It's also a 10 min walk to the Broughton Street area which is very lively. There is metered parking outside but I never had a problem getting a space for my car at evenings and weekends and in fact I usually parked right at the door.
Highly recommended.

The Apartment is ideally located for exploring Edinburgh and the many Historic sites & places of interest to Visitors to Edinburgh.

The Apartment is close to great local amenities in the Broughton Street/ Canonmills area of town just north of Princes Street- an 8 minutes walk to Broughton Street or the Botanic Gardens in the opposite direction or a 15-20 minutes walk to Princes Street and the train station.

.

Parking is free within a 2 minute walk Apartment - a huge plus to be so close to The City Centre

The immediate area boasts a large supermarket within a 5 minute walk as well as Broughton Street with its many cafés, bars, restaurants and speciality shops within an 8 minute walk.

The many city centre attractions such as the Castle and Royal Mile are within easy walking distance

Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building are both within two minutes walk. Edinburgh castle, at the top of the Royal Mile is St Giles Cathedral. Other attractions are Dynamic Earth; the Museum of Edinburgh; the Peoples’ Story; Canongate Kirk; and the Museum of Childhood.

All of central Edinburgh is within easy walking distance, including the National Museum of Scotland, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery of Scotland.

Most International Festival and Fringe venues are equally accessible – the Pleasance Courtyard and the Fringe Box Office in George Street.

Of course, Edinburgh has many other events to offer: Science festival (April), Film Festival (June), Jazz & Blues Festival (July), the Military Tattoo, Book Festival, Mela (August) and a number of others. And the Edinburgh Marathon in May!

There are various Edinburgh Bus Tours, departing from Wavery Bridge Daily.
