Nearest local pub: The Bowlers Rest, a locals pub, full of friendly Leith people and with a choice of over 50 scotch whiskies ! is only 50 paces from the flat front door.
Having said that, the flat, on the first floor is secure and quiet & lovely & warm !
To the front is a cobbled street (called setts in Scotland) & to the rear there are private gardens with parking for the flat available to either the front or rear.
Opposite the flat is Georgian Antiques with 4 floors of antiques - I bet you have never seen so many grandfather clocks in one place !
Behind that is Leith Links - where the game of Golf (or Kolf) was invented and there is still 9 holes to go round !
All of this is available to you......just go and join in and enjoy it !
Local and International Sport: Edinburgh is home to International Rugby Union in Scotland and games are played at Murrayfield stadium to the West side of Edinburgh city centre.
The flat has availability for rugby fans for the 3 weekends in November for the Autumn tests & for 6 Nations Rugby.
The owner is an avid rugby union fan & would be pleased to assist with bookings for games & possibly supply of tickets to bona fide & responsible fans.
Also there are two Edinburgh football teams, Hibernian (Hibs) based in Leith approx 1 mile from the flat and also Heart of Midlothian (Hearts) based in Gorgie near the rugby stadium.
I grew up in Glasgow & Edinburgh and my daughter went to Edinburgh University - for 7 years taking 2 degrees - and she now lives in Edinburgh with her partner - 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
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.
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.
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
A modern, delightful apartment... could not ask for better at that price.
Lovely flat in a prime location for anywhere you want to go. Princes Street only a 15 minute bus ride away with a choice of lots of buses. Flat was very comfortable with almost everything you needed for the stay. Only thing I missed was a dishwasher but luckily I did bring two from home my husband and my brother in law!! Parking was easy with private parking at the back of the flats however we didn't use this as we managed to park at the front with no problem. The flat was warm and cosy in fact we turned the heating off most of the time as it was too warm. Overall we couldn't have wished for a nicer place.
The flat was easy to find and Ros was very friendly and helpful and he serves a great Kronenberg. The flat was well appointed and easy to get in, out and around Edinburgh. Didnit give 5 out of 5 as ensuite shower in need of a spruce. Leith has lots of places to eat, drink or have a coffee. Edinburgh was brilliant.
Although the flat is comfortable there are a few comforts of home missing. There was no shampoo or cream rinse for daily use. The towels and carpets were stained. There were no self help directions on how to turn on the water heater or the flat heat so we were cold. Just a bit more amenities and instructions would make this spot a better stay.
This will be the 3rd time I've stayed at this flat and plan on returning again! Great location and great accommodations! What more could you ask for? Oh yeah the great local pub and the great and very helpful owner!!! I love Leith!!
Loved this apartment. I lived in Leith for a while 40 years ago (yikes!) and have always loved the sense of community. The revamp of the docks area which give visitors an amazing choice of venues for a drink or an evening meal hasn't diminished that feeling and it's still my favourite part of the city. Stuart's spacious apartment is ideally located, clean and well equipped with the two shower rooms being a bonus in the morning. Hope to return for a future visit.
