Edinburgh is Scotland's compact, hilly capital.
It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings.
Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers.
Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.
Leith is an area like no other. Boasting its own distinct character, Leith is a hub of lively eating and drinking spots, creativity and cultural diversity.
The district of Leith rests on the shores of the Firth of Forth, at the mouth of the Water of Leith. Having served as the port of Edinburgh for hundreds of years, the area’s original harbour dates back to the 14th century and has been visited by many travelling kings and queens, including Mary Queen of Scots and King George IV. For more information about Leith's fascinating history, check out the Explore Historic Leith brochure.
Today, Leith is a vivacious area jam-packed with delicious delis, chic drinking spots, and top restaurants boasting some of Scotland’s finest chefs. The district asserts a jovial attitude and hosts an eclectic mix of people and cultures, making each a visit a unique experience.
About the Apartment
It's on the 3rd floor so those with mobility issues may not enjoy the stairs however once you're up there the views are worth it!
With seven windows the lounge enjoys gorgeous views overlooking the Water of Leith.
The apartment is packed with curiosities and old taxidermy, so there's lots to see both inside the apartment and outside.
There are three bedrooms, two are double beds and the third can be set up as a twin or a king so can sleep six guests. I must note that one of the bedrooms is much more compact than the other two but still has a standard size double bed in it so can sleep two.
Whether staying for a weekend or a week you’ll feel a million miles from home in this comfortable apartment.
