About John Paul Mason

Hi

The apartment you will be letting was my home for 13 years. I am Edinburgh born and bred and have lived in the city for a total of 28 years. I now live in rural Perthshire where I make a living as a tour guide, musician and therapist. I have three properties in Edinburgh that I let.

John Paul Mason purchased this apartment in 1997

Why John Paul Mason chose The Meadows

This property sits in a terrific location within Edinburgh. The Easter Road area has it's own identity, is close to Calton Hill and Holyrood Park,mis near the coast and very accessable for the city centre. Lots of great local shops and a good local feel.

What makes this apartment unique

There are great views from the property - you can sit in the bay window and just watch the world go by. Enjoy being walking distance from the park, Calton Hill, the city centre and the heart of the Old Town.

Pleasant Apartment, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Rossie Apartment. The layout of the apartment works well. I would class the apartment to be a good quality student type accommodation. Basic kitchen space and bathroom, but reasonably tidy. Lounge and bedroom large and spacious, light and airy.

Great location a short taxi ride into the centre with local shops right outside.

Taxis in Edinburgh are extremely fast and efficient and good value especially for a family of 5.

We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the apartment and the location. We do think the apartment is somewhat beyond student accommodation given the quality of the furnishings. We Hope to meet you again.

Location

Special interest holidays:

Your host is a tour guide within Scotland and can provide you with details of excellent tours available to places outwith the city such as Roslin Chapel, Stirling Castle, Whisky Distilleries, The Highlands, Loch Ness, St Andrews and other places of interest which could all be reached in a day trip from Edinburgh. Longer multi day tours to places such as the Isle of Skye are also available from Edinburgh and your host is happy to provide further information.

Coast/Beach:

The apartment is ideally located for Portobello beach, only 10 minutes by car or 15 minutes by local bus. This is the city's local beach and as well as a long sandy beach there are numerous amusement arcades along the promenade.

There are further excellent beaches within 30-40 minutes drive along the east coast from the city such as Yellowcraigs and Gullane.

Travel:

The apartment is located 15 minutes walk or 10 minutes by taxi from Waverley Train Station. From the airport, a taxi takes around 30 minutes to the apartment or the airport shuttle bus to the city centre takes 30 minutes (last stop Waverley Station). You can also take the tram from the airport to the last stop in the city centre (30 mins) and then from the same stop a bus (4,26,44) the last 5 minutes to the apartment. A car is not necessary within the city which has an excellent bus service.

Distances:

The palace, parliament and Royal Mile are only a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Edinburgh castle around 20-25 minutes walk (bus 10 mins). The city centre is only a 15 minute walk (10 mins bus). Royal Yacht Brittania and the shore area of Edinburgh are 15 minutes by bus from the apartment as are any of the main galleries and theatres within the city. Further affield the coastline of East Lothian is a 30 minute drive, Roslin Chapel 30 mins (or bus no 15), Stirling and Glasgow 1 hour by rail.

Further Details:

There are a range of great little shops close by - the Manna House coffee shop and patisserie is an award winning bakery and definitely worth a visit and there are several other good coffee shops/cafes/delis. Cornelius wines is excellent and full of good advice on wine choice. There are also a good local supermarket, take away restaurants and several convenience stores and grocery shops in the immediate vicinity of the apartment.

For a fantastic view of the city take a walk up Calton Hill. You can be at the top in 10 minutes from the apartment and the views are just tremendous. For a little more exertion take a walk through Holyrood Park, just 10 minutes away and up along 'The Crags' - a long cliff line with fantastic views or up to the summit of Arthurs Seat - the highest point in the city.

If shopping is more of interest then George Street in the city centre is full of designer outlets and is now partly pedestrianised. For restaurants there are numerous good places at the top of Leith Walk (10 mins walk away) or if you would like to seek out a good Edinburgh pub then the Broughton Street area near the top of Leith Walk has some good traditional ale houses.

For children we reccommend Our Dynamic Earth near the Scottish Parliament and 10-15 minutes walk from the apartment. This is a fascinating journey through time and the history of the earth with plenty of interactive material for children.

There are numerous tours on offer within the city including open top bus tours and various 'ghost tours' in the Royal Mile area. Details of these and other activities in the city are provided within the apartment.
