Our lovely 4-star graded Garden Apartment is within Pilrig House - an A-Listed, 17th-century Scottish Townhouse (built 1638), which has a distinguished history & wonderful literary connection with Robert Louis Stevenson - it was his mother's family's home - as a child, RLS often visited and played in the gardens here - he mentions Pilrig House in his novels Kidnapped and Catriona.

Additional Location Information

Edinburgh has been nominated as the "Best Place to Live"in the UK and, as listed in the Top 10 Travel Destinations, is recognised as one of the world's most beautiful and historic cities.

At Pilrig House, you are in the heart of the city just a 15-20 minute walk to Princes Street in Edinburgh's city centre, and all of Edinburgh's main attractions. But, you'd be forgiven for thinking that you're in the middle of the Scottish countryside.

Why? To begin with, there's the greenery. People tell us that staying in Pilrig House is like staying on a country estate. And then there's the peace. Our parkland location is wonderfully tranquil, and the House's thick stone walls ensure that any noise has a long way to go before it disturbs your relaxation.

From Pilrig House, you are also a 10-minute walk from the fashionable Shore area of Leith - Edinburgh's historic port area on the waterfront, which boasts many recommended wine bars & restaurants, including two Michelin-star restaurants - Martin Wishart's and Tom Kitchin's restaurant. It is also where The Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed.

We are also a 15-minute stroll from Edinburgh's Botanical Gardens, and a 10-minute walk from the Playhouse Theatre and a mulit-screen cinema.

We are located mins' walk from the nearest bus-stop (buses travel to the centre of town every few minutes), swim and leisure centre with Victorian swimming-pool/gym/sauna/exercise classes, cafes and restaurants, local shops, supermarket, Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Clan Tartan Centre, Ramsay Cornish's auction house, laundrette, church, Martin Wishart's Cook School (Michelin-star restaurant owner), Leith School of Art, and a wide range of other independent shops and restaurants....

With the added bonus of FREE parking (very rare for Edinburgh!), you also have the benefit of being able to take some beautiful drives in the nearby couuntryside, or even further afield - we have a specially created file for those people with cars staying longer than 4 nights - which gives great recommendations of places to visit within a 2-hour boundary of Edinburgh, and includes maps and photographs. Our AA-touring atlas also comes in handy!

Pilrig House is within walking distance of the centre of Edinburgh, yet it's completely tranquil, and both bedrooms offer leafy views of those 'brave young woods'.
