About George McDougall

Born in London, I moved to Edinburgh at a very young age. I went to school here and then onto university where I graduated in Computer Science. I have since moved back to London with my fiancee and spend my time working and travelling between both wonderful cities.

George McDougall purchased this apartment in 2011

Why George McDougall chose Stockbridge

There are 2 reasons why I purchased this property and these are 'location' and 'space'. Anyone who knows Edinburgh knows that Stockbridge is probably the most desirable suburb in the entire city. With it's vast array of restaurants (including Michelin star), bars and independent shops, it's the perfect place to base yourself for a trip to the city. In terms of size, the apartment is very spacious and comfortably sleeps 6 people. Additionally, it's top floor location and large windows really make the apartment feel bright with lovely views over the Water of Leith river.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment comes with free on-street parking which in Edinburgh is a very unique feature. The location benefits from being just a short walk from Princes Street, whilst at the same time allowing guests to sample the riverside and peaceful walks of the Water of Leith and the Botanic Gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All interactions with the host were positive; he was helpful, responsive, and prompt at all times. The flat was comfortable and as tidy and attractive as pictured. The neighbourhood is lovely with lots of shops and restaurants, yet Edinburgh's top sites and attractions are easy to reach on foot. We were able to park our car free of charge in the resident parking attached to the building. We hope to stay here again soon!

Great Stay, Great Owner

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here for a 3 nights with my daughter whilst visiting universities. A last minute booking (the night before arrival) as our previous booking fell apart - George couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment was great - clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The location was great - Stockbridge has everything you could need for a stay within a few hundred yards and the apartment overlooks the Water of Leith, the riverside walk seems very popular although we didn't try it ourselves. The city centre is within easy reach (although as a previous reviewer said 15 minutes to walk there and 10 minutes back because of the hill). We would definitely stay here again - Thanks George.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! I hope Grace enjoyed the university Open Days and found them useful. Hopefully next time you guys will have an opportunity to sample the riverside walks too!

Convenient, clean and peaceful

  • 5 out of 5
Such a spacious, well lit apartment. A short taxi ride from waverly station and a bus stop just a couple of short blocks from the apartment building. The owner promptly met our party of four. He also returned security deposit quickly. I liked being in the very upscale Stockbridge area. I recommend this pretentious if you can climb stir from the foyer to the upper living area.

Great stay!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here with my partner, 1 other couple and their son for a short period in July. The facilities are great, and it easily catered for 5 people! George was great - we had a lovely little welcome gift and card, and he was happy to take the time to answer any questions and give us a bit of info about Edinburgh itself. The apartment itself is situated in a nice neighbourhood with plenty of independent shops, a few small/medium sized convenience stores, and a lovely little food market that opens up on the corner!

From the city centre, you're about a 15 minute walk (uphill), then 10 minutes back as youre going downhill.

I will be keeping this bookmarked for the next time I visit as there is really no need to look around because this place has everything youd want!

The Lothians region

Welcome to Edinburgh, the inspiring capital of Scotland, where centuries of history meet a vibrant, cosmopolitan city in an unforgettable setting. Discover stunning scenery, striking architecture and fine food, and beautiful coast and countryside in the nearby Lothians. From the world's festival capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site to world-class visitor attractions and exhilarating outdoor pursuits, Edinburgh & The Lothians is a must-visit on anyone's list.

Edinburgh is a hive of cultural activity, and nowhere is this better seen than in the city's festivals. With performing arts, music, drama, exhibitions, films, comedy and talks, the outpouring of creativity during Edinburgh's festivals is second to none. With everything from Highland games to fascinating local events, there is lots going on across the Lothians too.

Edinburgh

Stockbridge has a definite Bohemian vibe and many artists, musicians, poets, writers and Thespians have made the area their home. Over the years famous residents have included, portrait artist Sir Henry Raeburn, poet James Hogg, surgeon Sir James Young Simpson and more recently actor Norman Lovett and the lead singer of the band 'Garbage', Shirley Manson.

The original Mrs Doubtfire or 'Madame Doubtfire' lived and ran a rag and bone shop in South East Circus Place, Stockbridge. The novelist Anne Fine who also lived in the area was inspired by the name which remained faded above her shop (now a solicitors) many years after Madame Doubtfire's death. Her novel of the same name was in turn the inspiration for the movie based on her book, although Robin William's character bares little resemblance to the 'real' Madame Doubtfire.

Stockbridge is home to a wealth independent amenities, including artisan bakeries, butchers, cheese-mongers and coffee shops. All these goodies can be sampled along the high street or at the Stockbridge Market which runs all day on a Sunday and is located directly opposite the apartment.

For those interested in vintage clothing, Stockbridge's charity shops are well known in Edinburgh as offering some of the best high quality vintage clothing in the city. Amongst the vast quantities of clothing, you might just spot a real designer gem!

The nightlife options in Stockbridge are vast, with both Michelin star and budget restaurants on your doorstep. Again, there is an assortment of different bars, everything from a huge range of local whiskies at the The Stockbridge Tap to scrummy cocktails at Hamiltons.
