Modern apartment in a central location with a small balcony. Benefiting from elevator access and limited free parking. Shops and pubs within walking distance.

This stylish, contemporary apartment is a charming urban retreat in the heart of the vibrant, trendy neighbourhood of Stockbridge, in the north of the city of Edinburgh. With spacious, bright rooms and an ideal location in a quiet cobbled lane just off the main street of Stockbridge, this place could be your Scottish home away from home.

The property itself is a first-floor apartment, with a sociable open-plan area and balcony overlooking the cobbled street. Its subtly bright and modern interiors will show you the best of European city style.

Accessed via a flight of steps or elevator, enter into the heart of the flat, the open-plan living space. It’s a combination of a spacious and inviting living room, a sweet dining table, and a nifty little kitchen that sits beyond a partition. A TV and electric fire bring cosiness to the space, and a pair of French doors open out onto a balcony, which overlooks the historic Stockbridge street. The decor is fresh and calm but colourful. After a long day of exploring, head through to your comfy double bedroom, lovingly decorated, and with a reading area. The bathroom is next door and offers a shower above bath, so you can have a quick freshen up or a long soak, depending on how you feel.

If you fancy sitting in the fresh air and doing some people watching, head out to your balcony, or take the stairs or handy elevator to the outside, where you can join your neighbours in this friendly community.

The apartment is located in the quaint, popular area of Stockbridge, a place with its own atmosphere and intrigue but close to the heart of Edinburgh's more well-known streets. Just a hundred metres from the apartment sits the main street of the neighbourhood, where traditional pubs, hip eateries, and independent shops are just some of the attractions on offer.

You could also take the scenic route and stroll beside the Water of Leith, through Inverleith Park. Here, you'll find fascinating extra delights like a duck pond and the popular natural spot of the Royal Botanic Garden, with indoor and outdoor displays, manicured and wild gardens, and lovely places to eat and drink. If walking is your thing, you can continue following the Water of Leith and discover a trail of hidden walking and cycling paths that extend around the city, even taking you up to the seaside and port communities of Leith and Newhaven.

Once you've befriended the Stockbridge locals, head into the heart of the city. Princes Street, Edinburgh's mammoth shopping road, begins just 1.5 miles away. From here, you can check out the stunning historical landmarks that are scattered across the city, including the Scott Monument, the Royal Mile, and Edinburgh Castle.

We loved the apartment in Stockbridge. It was in a great location of Edinburgh, great village atmosphere, close to good restaurants, pubs and shopping for supplies. And only an easy walk into the New and Old towns. Well equipped kitchen and great wi-fi. Pass on our thanks to the owners for use of the apartment and making our stay in Edinburgh a weeRead morek to remember. Hide

The flat is ideally located for the Royal Botanic Gardens and is also far enough away from the City centre to avoid the hustle and bustle of the area. However it would be useful to know in advance that the walk into the City Centre is up hill and may not be suitable for some people.

A great flat for an Edinburgh-centric city break and ideally positioned for Stockbridge and bus links into the centre. Be patient if driving to the flat, and you will get a parking space. Use public transport whilst you are there. Plenty of eateries in the vicinity and a couple of supermarkets if you want to self-cater (the flat has a well appointeRead mored kitchen). Hide

The apartment is well kept and very clean. There was very good communication and interaction with the service which oversees the guests. The size is just right for a couple who would be comfortable. The location in the lovely community of Stockbridge is just right. A lovely section of Edinburgh with easy access to New Town and Old Town either by foRead moreot or public transit. The Sunday market was a wonderful surprise and there are numerous shops and restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Hide

For a city break the apartment was perfectly situated, well within walking distance, for all the tourist sites and Waverley main station. Good value for money. Warm and cosy.

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.
