About Scott Gibson
My wife and I have lived in Edinburgh for over 30 years now. We have 6 teenage/twenty something children and have lived in our Town House in Northumberland Street for almost 7 years now. Most of the 'children' have now left home and so we decided to convert the Garden Flat into a completely self contained flat suitable for holiday/business lets. It is stunning and is the sort of place that we would want to rent if we were visiting a capital city ourselves. We would like to think we have thought of most things which will help make your stay comfortable and special. We even have an available garaged car space nearby for an additional charge if you wish to take your car with you.
Scott Gibson purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Scott Gibson chose New Town
The property is quite unique for the letting market in Edinburgh in that it also has it's own private and self contained garden as well as a garaged car space nearby (for an extra charge). This architect designed garden, which has also recently been developed is accessed directly from the kitchen/dining/living areas via large glazed double doors onto a stone patio area. Outside tables and chairs as well as bench seating are provided for guest use as is a gas BBQ (gas supplied). The garden is lit too so can be used in the evenings. While we do not condone nor encourage or even allow smoking in the property, smokers are welcome to use the front or back garden areas.
What makes this Apartment unique
Open plan living/dining/kitchen area with stunning outlook onto a recently redeveloped contemporary garden, and all in the heart of the City within walking distance of all of edinburgh's unique attractions. We also have an available garage space nearby which can be leased at an additional cost for the duration of your visit.

Spacius beutiful flat with an amazing closed garden and great location.
We, 2 senior couples, enjoyed staying in this well equipped and spacius flat for a week.If the weather had been a tiny bit warmer and dryer we had used this dream
garden a lot more, it´s amazing! The location was perfect for us, bus stops
at both ends of the short street - and the buses frequent and easy to use.
We went to the E.Casle, shopped on Prinsess Str. and nearby streets, visited old Pubs and restaurants f.ex. Fazenda, which we loved. Walked along river Leith and more and more. And a bus tour to Fife, small sea villages, St Andrews and Falkland was a treat. All in all, we will be back!

Great flat, close to castle
Rented the flat for a month. It was a perfect place for the family (2 adults, 1 child). Location was incredible, very close to the castle and all Edinburgh has to offer. The flat has been recently remodeled and is fully outfitted and very comfortable. The outside garden space is also very nice and provides a good extension to the living space. Pictures on the listing are accurate. Location is quiet, yet convenient to parks, restaurants, shopping, and grocery. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. The family was asking when we could come back before we even left. Highly recommended
Wonderful place to stay!
Absolutely loved this garden flat! Very well equipped with a sonos system, heated bathroom floors, heated towel racks, Miele appliances - very high end finishes. Really loved the private garden - what a treat. The whole flat was super comfortable and chic. It was a retreat from the city even though we were in the heart of it all. Major tourist attractions are a 10-15 minute walk or a 5 pound taxi away. Nearby restaurants and neighborhoods are an extra treat aside from those traditional tourist activities. Be sure to check out the Stockbridge area for a local flavor. The local pub made us feel like locals. Host was very accessible for any questions we had and provided all the info we needed on a timely basis. We wish we could have stayed longer, and can’t wait to come back again!
Lovely-my favorite place of all the flats we stayed in
This flat was in such a perfect location, close enough to walk to the castles and the mile, around the corner from many restaurants but a very quiet area too. Enough furniture, as some rental flats we found to be sparsely furnished. I wasn't sure if the back and front gardens would be shared or private but they are only yours. I only wished we had more days to stay here and enjoy them longer. If looking for a place in Edinburgh this is the perfect place hands down! Comfortatble beds, nice bathrooms, great communication with the owners and well equipped!
Fantastic apartment and great location
Superb apartment and the owner has a great attention to detail. Would highly recommend when in Edinburgh
Thank you for such a glowing review. We loved having you and your family at the Garden Flat here in Edinburgh and thank you for leaving the place so clean and tidy. We hope you will come back again sometime soon. Also glad you were able to take advantage of our garage parking space close by. Scott
I am reluctant to leave a review because I don't want to share this find. It's a beautiful, clean, modern and centrally located flat. The hosts couldn't be more helpful and communicative. That's all I'm saying. See for yourself....or not, I'd be happy with that.
We have a garaged car space available nearby for an additional cost if this is required. This needs to be pre booked to ensure availability.
