Charming ground floor apartment in superb central location, within a 10 minute walk of Princes Street and with the added benefit of private parking. The interior is bright, sunny and comfortably furnished in a traditional style. A delightful holiday home for visitors wishing to enjoy the cultural delights of the capital city.

This lovely apartment could be your stylish, romantic base from which to explore the vibrant city of Edinburgh. Located just half a mile from the start of Princes Street, the apartment gives you prime access to the heart of the city, where you’ll find fascinating history and cultural festivities to get involved in.

The apartment is on the ground floor of a traditional building in a charming Georgian crescent. Fitted out with smart, stylish furnishings and elegant neutral tones, the interior is calming and cosy, providing a lovely retreat for two, while being right in the centre of Edinburgh’s most popular area.

Head into the lounge, a comfy, relaxing zone where you can wind down in front of the TV and fireplace, or simply enjoy gazing out at the view of the cobbled street. Head through into the kitchen, a sweet and sociable space with all the modern conveniences you could need, plus a lovely dining table for enjoying meals together. Back along the hall, you’ll find the relaxing double bedroom. It’s a comfortable and peaceful space, decorated in calming colours, with thoughtful details and plenty of storage, so you can really make yourselves at home. Plus, the bathroom with shower and bath is right next door.

Outside the apartment, you have private resident’s parking and the lovely stretch of Hopetoun Gardens, with its pretty tree-lined lawn and cobbled crescent.

The apartment is located on a delightful cobbled street in a Georgian crescent, just off the famous shopping street of Leith Walk that connects the old heart of Edinburgh to the seaside. It's the ideal destination for wandering into Princes Street half a mile away, or taking the path less travelled up to Leith and Newhaven.

A scenic 2-mile walk will bring you to the port of Leith, where you can discover some royal maritime history onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia, and explore the rooms where the queen and her family stayed and entertained before the yacht was retired.

In the city of Edinburgh itself, there's so much to do that you'll need to come back again and again to enjoy it all. Delight in a picnic in Queen Street Gardens, take a ghost tour around the most haunted spots of the city, head up to Edinburgh Castle and hear the famous canon go off at lunchtime, or go for an art crawl. There are many wonderful homes of contemporary and historical art across town, including the Scottish National Gallery. Or, for more fresh air pursuits, head out of town to discover the surrounding wildlife and countryside and the wealth of golf courses around.

The apartment is in a wonderful place in Edinburgh. It's possible to walk down onto Princes Street in about 10 minutes. The parking is excellent, off the road. It meant that we were able to park up and then not use the car for the whole week. We used the public transport, which is excellent. 4 for a day ticket meant we were able to travel all over Read morethe city easily without worrying about the car. We would heartily recommend this apartment. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
