|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Two bedroom flat in the converted Crabbies Warehouse in Leith. Sleeps 5 (double bedroom, single bedroom, plus sofa bed for two).
Benefits from a private parking space (rare in Edinburgh!), 50 meg broadband, cable TV, large kitchen, washer drier.
It's on several bus routes - the 22, 14, 10, 35, 7, 16, 12.
Night buses: N22 and N16
Flat is situated in Leith, at the foot of Leith Walk, and is a short walk from Ocean Terminal, and about a 15 minute walk from city centre (5 min taxi). The apartment is close enough to the city centre for your convenience, but also in a quiet enough area to ensure a good nights sleep.
High chair and travel cot available.
Furnished to a high standard throughout, with solid oak furniture, high quality Egyptian cotton linens, and a well equipped kitchen.
A high quality white face cloth, hand towel, and bath sheet is provided for each guest.
Five people can be accommodated in one double bedroom, one single bedroom, and one double sofa-bed in the living room. This is self-catering accommodation.
The building itself is the former warehouse for Crabbies Green Ginger wine, and was constructed around 1850, before being converted into apartments in 1999. It's in a cosmopolitan location in Leith, with the trendy restaurants of the Shore on the next street.
Unusually for Edinburgh, we have a private parking space. Not that you'll need it - transport throughout the capital is fantastic, and from the apartment, there are seven bus routes, including two night buses (see further down the page). However, if you require additional parking, parking on nearby streets is free, and does not require a permit.
The apartment is on the ground floor, making it accessible for those with mobility issues. Despite being in the city, the apartment is very quiet, by virtue of the thick walls of the converted warehouse.
To welcome you after your journey to Edinburgh, you'll find a gift basket of tea, coffee, a few Scottish treats, and your first night's toiletries. There's also a pint of milk in the fridge.
The kitchen is fully equipped with the items you'd expect such as matching crockery, cutlery and glassware, as well as utensils for even the more adventurous cooks. If you need some inspiration to make use of the whisks, blender and pastry brushes, I've also supplied a selection of cookery books.
FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE
- A washer-dryer
- On request: a travel cot and high chair

We have fast, free, 100 meg broadband internet, available both as wifi and wired connection. There's cable TV, with over 130 TV channels. I've also supplied a DVD library with over 80 DVDs suitable for all ages. If you prefer a relaxed evening reading a book, then there's also a selection of over 100 novels.
Unlimited free calls to UK landlines! The apartment's landline has free calling to landlines in 68 countries, and free calling to mobiles in many more, including the US and Canada.
The apartment is located on Great Junction Street, in Leith, Edinburgh, at the site of the Crabbies Warehouses. We have one private parking space, and there is further communal parking on a first-come, first-served basis. There is also free on-street parking nearby.
- Public Transport
Public transport is excellent, with 7 bus routes from within 100 metres of the apartment, including two night-bus routes. Despite its central location, the apartment is very quiet, thanks to its situation on the warehouse development.
The number 22 bus takes around 10 minutes to reach Princes Street, which is considered the heart of Edinburgh.
I look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
We're Joe and Peter - and we look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh. We used to live in this apartment (or flat, as they're called in the UK!) until a few years ago - it's a place we know and love.
Joe McDougall purchased this apartment in 2006
We used to live here before we moved to the countryside. It's situated in the Crabbies Warehouse, on the site of the old Yardheads Distillery - where Crabbies Green Ginger Wine was made, from 1850! In 1990 the business moved to a soulless industrial estate, leaving this gorgeous warehouse for conversion into flats.
You'll be in a great position at the foot of Leith Walk - meaning there's great access to the city centre, while avoiding the constant footfall of tourists.
We had a great time in this flat during the festive period. We are a wee family of four and the space suited the occasion exceeding our expectations.
The owners met us upon arrival and walked us through everything in the apartment. We loved the place and felt comfortable in the apartment. We would highly recommend it to others. The only downside was the washer/dryer combo as it took forever to get stuff dry, but we hung our stuff up to air dry and it worked out fine. Short ride into Edinburgh with bus transportation very reliable!
The apartment is very centrally located within reach of shops, pubs and restaurants. It is well served by public transport to the city centre. Ideal for small families maximum 4 adults.
The owner Joe was wonderful to work with throughout the process of booking, confirming and arriving. Easy access to public transportation. We used the bus system throughout the city and the bus stop was within a block from the Apartment. This apartment fits 4 adults comfortably, and a 5th person can be squeezed in. Loved the location.
This is a lovely, spacious 2 bedroomed apartment, well-equipped with all mod cons, even digital radios in the bedrooms and superfast broadband and Virgin cable TV! Joseph couldn't do enough to make us comfortable, including a thoughtful welcome basket and fresh flowers! Thank you!
