About this apartment
Guests can make the most of this gorgeous example of a late 19th century Edinburgh flat with its lovely decorative features. Light floods in through tall Victorian windows. The large living room has sofas aplenty, perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring the city. Have a game of pool (or miniature croquet!) on the slate snooker table.

The flat is ideally located between the vibrant boroughs of Bruntsfield and Marchmont, just off the large green spaces of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links - home to the oldest golf course in the world, now a free pitch and putt course. The area is famous as the city's "literary quarter", home to authors like Ian McCall Smith, Ian Rankin, and JK Rowling (who all live nearby on 'Writers Block'). It's only two minutes walk to a fabulous shopping area, especially for foodies - everything from upscale supermarkets to specialist grocers and countless independent boutiques. Plus there's and endless choice of cafes, bars, and eateries (and "the world's best pub" according to Rick Stein) all within easy walking distance. While you're escaping the hustle and costliness of the city centre, it's just an eight minute bus ride to get there, with services every couple of minutes. Win win. Or stroll the other way, and there's a pretty canal, or gorgeous wooded glen for leisurely walks, all within easy access.
