About Stuart Carmichael

I grew up in Glasgow & Edinburgh and my daughter is at Edinburgh University - so we use the apartment as a 'home from home' to go and visit as we now live over 5 hours away in Sheffield in England.

Stuart Carmichael purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Stuart Carmichael chose Leith

The whole area is vibrant and developing despite the recession and the local people are all so friendly - we couldn't resist Leith !

It has bars and bistros and cosy pubs and 'posh' restaurants but also takeaways and local shops and national supermarkets.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is relatively new - less than 15 years old - and was in a quiet location with grass, trees and free parking to the front and rear.

It just seems ideal for local living or popping upto town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited this gorgeous flat for my 40th birthday and were delighted with the gift of flowers and chocolates - a real surprise !

Superb location - really warm and cosy - just like it says in the advert.

Everything exceeded our expectations and we have recommended flat to our friends.

See you again soon ! Gerry from Maidenhead

Great Flat in Leith

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from staying in this lovely flat in Leith, great location near Edinburgh. Everything was neat and clean and convenient. We had everything we needed close at hand and walking to the bus or other locales was easy. There were plenty of shops and restaurants/pubs near by and the bus made getting to Edinburgh a breeze. We would love to come back and will definitely recommend this property to friends and family wishing to travel to Scotland. Thank you for a great stay.

Fabulous Second Stay in Leith!

  • 5 out of 5
This was my second stay at Stuart's wonderful 2 bedroom flat and again I was not disappointed! Love the beautiful and super clean flat, love the quiet and ideal location, and love our friendly and accommodating host! Spent a little more time this time in the Leith area having dinner at the King's Wark upon recommendation from Russ at the Bowlers Rest Pub. Had lots of good times and fun in this area of Edinburgh. Still did not get our fill and hope to return once again and would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Stuart's wonderful flat. Stuart is always available, the flat has lots of information available for activities, and the location is great. Parking is also very adequate with parking in front but also permit parking in the back with the pass at the flat. We actually walked to Princes Street twice this time, a good walk but very doable. Also close to shopping, Tesco within walking distance plus tons of restaurants, pubs, shopping...we really enjoyed breakfast at the Rock Salt Cafe on Constitution St...Again if you're going to Edinburgh you will not be disappointed staying here!!! Love it!!

Absolutely lovely spacious apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Such a lovely apartment with everything you could need. There were 5 of us (23-25 year olds) staying and there was more than enough space. The place is kitted out with everything you could need - including golf clubs and impressive collection of films! We came to Edinburgh for the sightseeing but you could easily spend a few days cosied up in the apartment.

It was our first time in Edinburgh and we have fallen in love, amazing sights, plenty to do and see. Apartment is in Leith which is really sweet and a 20-ish minute walk into the centre of Edinburgh.

Stuart was extremely helpful and accomodating, even posting the keys to my home address as we were due to arrive late at night. An extra bed was added for our 5th member, he assured me it was the comfiest bed he had slept in for a long time! An extra dining chair was even added and the whole place was spotless when we arrived.

Couldn't give Stuart or the apartment higher praise, it was just what we were looking for and booking was completely stress-free.

Would definitely visit again.

Cozy, well-outfitted spot in Leith

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this apartment and would absolutely stay again. Very comfortable both in space and in creature comforts, it was perfect for our girls' weekend- two of us visiting from the US to spend time with a friend who has moved Scotland. We were stunned at how exceptionally quiet the place was- not a sound at night- yet so perfectly in and adjacent to Leith 'town' and the Shore- was our favorite part of Edinburgh for sure. Great time, great spot, great host. Thank you, Ian!

Spacious, comfortable flat in good location.

  • 5 out of 5
The flat was very comfortable for 4 adults, fully equipped and absolutely spotless. It is in a great location, with many restaurants and pubs in leith. There is ample free parking at the flat which is a real plus. Edinburgh and all it's attractions is easily accessible by bus, taxi or an interesting walk along the water of leith or up the leith walk. We would all recommend this flat to anybody and hope to stay again.
