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.

We would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in a luxurious accommodation in the very centre of the city.

The booking process was smooth and we were met at the property by the owner who gave us a good welcome, showed us around and generally made us feel at home. The apartment is very modern and is spotlessly clean. It is well furnished and the kitchen will cater for all your needs, we only had breakfast at the apartment but there are enough pots, pans & utensils to self cater if that is what you wish for. The property is located on the Royal Mile being a short walk from the Railway Station. If you come out of the front door and turn right you can be at the Castle in around 15/20 mins or turn left and you're at Holyrood Palace in about the same time. We explored the City on foot visiting a number of eateries and pubs around the City Centre and ventured / climbed up Arthurs Seat which gives a panoramic view of the city (if climbing Arthurs Seat the easier path is to the left as you look from the car park but we unintentionally took the more challenging path to the right). In summary I'd thoroughly recommend this apartment and would certainly look to stay again.
