Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, just off the Royal Mile this home from home is a light and airy period property. It offers unrivalled access to all that Edinburgh has to offer: among others, the Castle, the Palace, John Knox’s House, St Giles' Cathedral and the Scottish Parliament are all within easy walking distance. There are some great bars and restaurants in the area but, if you want to dine at home, the flat boasts a fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need to prepare a home cooked meal.
St Mary's Street: St Mary's Street has two award-winning restaurants, Empires, a warm and inviting Turkish haven and David Bann, serving excellent vegetarian produce. And local pubs the Waverley and the World’s End each have bags of character. There are supermarkets in the area but the closest grocery shop is just at the end of the road on the Royal Mile.
Beaches: Edinburgh’s closest beach is at Portobello, a 10-minute drive from the centre. A little further afield, within a 20-minute drive you will find Seton Sands and further still (40-minute drive) Aberdour's Silver Sands (my favourite beach in the area). The East Coast, within a 30-minute drive towards North Berwick, also has beautiful beaches to explore
Golf facilities: The home of golf, St Andrew's, is a 90-minute drive away and well worth a visit, whether you are a golf enthusiast or not. The golf course and University are world famous and the beaches are beautiful. There are many more world class courses in East Lothian, in Gullane, North Berwick and the surrounding areas (where you'll also find excellent beaches - see above!).
