We are a married couple with strong ties to Scotland and Edinburgh in particular. Having been born in Scotland and lived in Edinburgh for many years we are very appreciative of the beauty and way of life that this city can provide. We particularly enjoy showing friends around and introducing them to this unique city.

This property is right in the heart of historic Edinburgh but has all the modern amenities to make any visit to the city comfortable and a home from home. From the secure parking, a real luxury in the city centre, to the practical benefits of a lift and three bathrooms this apartment makes visiting Edinburgh a real treat.
We love the area including the many unique bars and restaurants in historic old buildings as well as interesting specialists shops just round the corner through the old Tolbooth arch. Arthurs Seat and Salisbury Craggs provide a stunning skyline from the sitting room window.
