Property code: E1678

Charming converted apartment retaining many original features. A unique and quiet waterside location with patio doors leading out onto a cobbled wharf on the banks of the river. Shops and pub within walking distance.

This beautifully presented apartment sits right on the cobbled quay of Leith’s wharf. Stroll straight out of your patio doors onto the portside streets, full of vibrant shops, restaurants and local history. The apartment is a contemporary, calming space, the perfect base for two from which to explore this fascinating area of Edinburgh.

The property itself is a one-bedroom apartment, situated in a lovely converted wharf building dating back to the 18th century. The rooms are light and bright, and decorated in a sweet modern style, letting original features like exposed beams and stone pillars shine.

Enter into your open-plan living space, combining sitting room, dining area, and kitchen, all arranged delightfully around the view of the river as it passes by the cobbled wharf. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences you could want for making your own feasts while you’re here. Take your meal to the romantic dining table for two, where you can eat beside the view. Head through to the bedroom next door, a gorgeously light and breezy room with patio doors opening straight onto the cobbles. The bathroom is an indulgent, chic space with a shower over bath, perfect for enjoying a relaxing soak before heading out on the town.

Outside the property, the exterior of the building forms a pretty part of the town’s vista, and the streets of Leith are right outside your door - yours to stroll and begin the trail along the Water of Leith to the Firth or into town. A communal grass area offers a great spot to enjoy a morning coffee in the Scottish sunshine.

The apartment building is located right on the wharf in the centre of the popular cultural quarter of Leith, in the north of Edinburgh. The Water of Leith floats by, and you can follow the waterside trail through hidden cycle paths and walkways right into the heart of the city.

There are plenty of things to see and do in Leith and its vicinity - visit the cinema and shops at Ocean Terminal less than a mile away or take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia. The town is especially known for its food, with seafood restaurants of all shapes and sizes making the most of their Firth-fresh location.

Head into Edinburgh for unique city delights and astonishing history. Edinburgh Castle is 3.5 miles away – make the journey by bus, car, or a gentle walk to see this magnificent structure with award-winning historical exhibits. The Royal Mile begins at the gates of the castle and you can follow it for all the tartan and haggis you could desire. Take a ghost tour to get a taste of the more haunted side of the city. Or, if you fancy checking out a lovely neighbourhood beach, head to Portobello, a quaint community by the seaside, 3.5 miles from your door.

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.
