Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland, Your Home Away From Home

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and also its second largest city. Positioned just slightly inland from the coast, it attracts thousands of visitors every year who are drawn to its interesting history, culture and architecture. There are many forms of accommodation to choose from in the city, but the best idea for anyone who wishes to see it from a more personal perspective, is to stay in a holiday rental apartment in Edinburgh. Tastefully furnished and decorated, and coming with a fully-equipped kitchen that enables self catering, staying in one has a far more comfortable feel than staying in an hotel.

Weather in Edinburgh, Scotland

Between November and February, the average daytime high temperatures measure 7 degrees Celsius and the lows measure 1.5 degrees. It does get lower than this on occasion, and the wind can make it feel colder than it is. During the summer months, the average daytime highs are between 17 and 19 degrees, and the lows 10 degrees. Rainfall is spread quite evenly throughout the year at 70mm per month. A holiday in Edinburgh can be taken at any time of year, although the most popular time, is from the late spring through to early autumn.

Everything you need is provided along with a few extra provisions from the owners to greet you. The apartment is perfectly located for the city of Edinburgh and also for Stockbridge. There are many local shops and restaurants within 10mins walk. Excellent transport services. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return. Recommended.

The apartment is extremely well located just a five minute walk from York Place tram stop which is the end of the line from the airport. So convenient and efficient. There are a number of very good restaurants and bistros in the immediate area and the shopping area of Princes Street is only a ten minute walk away. The apartment itself is very highly specced with a large comfortable bed that was difficult to leave! The shower is amazing and not as confusing as some have reported; hot and very powerful. Very well equipped kitchen with everything you would need to prepare a meal, although the most we ever did was make tea and coffee! I cannot recommend this apartment enough. Alexandra is a great host and the apartment feels like a home rather than just a place to stay. I will definitely stay here again whenever visiting Edinburgh.
