Edinburgh, Scotland
North Castle Street offers guests the chance to experience city centre living at its very best, with the convenience of private gated parking for two cars. The apartment has been recently updated to a very high standard and is beautifully furnished throughout. It is bright and airy in the summer and super cosy in the winter. The windows from all rooms offer stunning views of Edinburgh and far beyond.

About the neighbourhood
North Castle Street lies right in the heart of the New Town. The apartment is in walking distance of most of Edinburgh's main attractions. George Street is a one minute walk away with its fantastic bars, restaurants and stylish shops. You can also take a bus from here to most areas in Edinburgh. Take a trip down to Leith to see the Royal Yacht Britannia which is docked here. Trips on board are held daily.

Edinburgh Castle can be seen clearly from the windows of the apartment and is about a 20 minute stroll through the fabulous old town and up the Royal Mile. However, with so much to see and do along the way, it may take much longer!

The lovely Princes Street gardens set against the backdrop of the Castle are just a three minute walk away and offer a peaceful setting to relax and un...
