The month of August is the biggest Comedy Music and Arts Festival in the World.. I am in a pinical center of this Amazing festival .. Young people love my situation and Cat !
Great location near statue of Greyfriars Bobby at the top of the Grassmarket .Five mins to the University and the Meadows which is a mile of park with Arthur's seat ..It is 10mins from the Castle and the Royal mile directly beside the Grassmarket..There are lots of tours in the famous Gothic Graveyard which can be seen from the kitchen.. best seen at sunset in winter ..JKRowling based Hogwarts on Heriots the private School which also can be seen from flat..The original wooden shutters of this 300 year old property cut out the modern world.
If you like history and or Folk music bars the location is perfect..
This is a character place .. The living room is pretty with real log fire.. sometimes requested. It is a bit like staying in an old farm cotage in middle of city.. Most people find it charming.. There is lots of hot water and towels etc provided.. The bedroom has king size bed and there is a single futon also...
The place is Very atmospheric. With lots of Folk bars close to flat... ..
This was the flat that belonged to the bakers that fed little Bobby the famous dog that sat on his masters grave faithfully for years.. This is the Old town Edinburgh rich in 1000's of years of history with easy access to bus to the Airport , fifteen mins walk to Watherly station and Princes street the mound and the RSA Gallery.
There has been activiy of a poltergist he has tendency to throw little pebbles at the kitchen window and bruise people who miss behave.., I have learned his names Mackenzie he was a lawyer in 1700's.. Unless you are very naughty will leave people alone..
Quirky Artists and lovely big cat will host you and you have plenty space with 2 private rooms.
Porridge or a full Scottish cooked breakfast with Haggis can be provided..
The address is directly to the left of the entrance to Greyfriars Kirkyard.. The door is green the same colour as the Greyfriars Art shop. It is first floor up some very old stone stairs with two peep holes carfully carved showing that the building was build before long before electricity... There is a hand rail ..
