NEWLY REFURBISHED walk in shower room, new heating system, king-size bed with quality Sealy mattress and freshly painted. Fancy having royalty as neighbours? This fantastically located central apartment (with free on-site parking) is almost next door to The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's residence whilst in Scotland. Across the road from the Palace is the Scottish Parliament Building and Dynamic Earth. From there, a short stroll up the Canongate leads to the High Street where at the top you will find the famous Edinburgh castle (the route from the Palace to the Castle is known as the Royal Mile) . The accommodation is also within walking distance of most of the fringe and festival venues and the shopping area of Princes Street.

Situated at the edge of Holyrood Park, the apartment is well located for access for walks, runs, cycling and climbing to the top of 'Arthur's Seat' the extinct volcano. The view from the top is well worth the climb and we have provided binoculars for your use. This walk has been voted the 9th best city hike in the world by 'Lonely Planet'. There are cycle racks available for cyclists just outside the apartment.
This exceptionally clean modern apartment with one bedroom, living room, separate kitchen and bathroom has every conceivable comfort and convenience for your stay. We provide everything you will need so there's no need to go shopping for the basics like, soap, kitchen roll, etc. You will find a free welcome pack on your arrival to get you started. We have a selection of maps, guides, books and DVDs for your use and Wi-Fi (strong reliable signal) is also available free of charge. Of course heating, bed linen and towels are also included in the price.
We have decided to let out our apartment to a maximum of 2 guests to ensure the best possible experience. We have therefore been able to provide a comfortable quality sofa in the living room as a sofa bed is not required. We have furnished the apartment carefully, choosing stylish quality furnishings for an enjoyable stay for our guests. The apartment is heated throughout and is lovely and warm.
As the apartment is on the ground floor there are no accessibility problems for the infirm. We also provide a 'meet and greet' service at no extra charge to ensure you have gained access to the apartment and to answer any questions you may have.
Free private car parking, which is a rarity in central Edinburgh is provided for those arriving by car. There are private resident's parking bays at the apartment for which you will be given a parking permit for use during your stay. However, a car is not necessary as all the main tourist attractions are within walking distance and Edinburgh has a fantastic regular bus service if you want to go further.

The Edinburgh Waverley train station is 1 mile from the apartment. If you are flying to Edinburgh the airport is 9 miles from the apartment. You can take the number 35 bus (only £1.50 each way) from the airport. It comes down the Cannongate (Royal Mile). At the bottom of the Royal Mile you will see the Scottish Parliament building on your right and the Queens Gallery/Palace of Holyrood House straight ahead. The bus then turns left - you should get off the bus at the first bus stop after turning off the Royal Mile. Then cross the road and walk under the bridge. Turn right into Croft-An-Righ then left into Tytler Gardens. (5 minute walk from the bus stop to apartment) Or you can take a taxi for about £20 to £25 from the airport.
