One of the first flats to be built in the New Town by James Craig in 1790 and directly adjacent to the Edinburgh town house of Sir Walter Scott! Two bedrooms - one master, (with super king-size divan) and stunning castle views. One single (but just large enough for two with a single bed that pulls out to a three quarters size bed). large elegant lounge with two large windows, contemporary furnishings and decor with two comfortable sofas and a marble dining table and chairs for six. There is a large Sony flat screen TV with access to Sky television.
Fully fitted contemporary, luxury kitchen with everything you would expect of a 5 star property and bathroom (both with lime stone throughout) double bath and steam shower, under-floor heating and limestone wet-room.
This property presents a great opportunity to be at the heart of the largest arts festival in the world, "The edinburgh International Festival". Not only are you located in a a central spot second to none and surrounded by all the biggest and best cultural venues - The Book festival site - 2 mins walk, The Assembly Rooms - 2 mins walk etc, but you also have the sanctuary of both Princes Street Gardens public park in front, 2 mins walk and the private haven of Queens Street Gardens to the back of the apartment ( access for residents only).
Due to cancellation there are still dates in August and the last week up until the 5th September will encapsulate the spectacular fire works display from Edinburgh Castle with a live orchestral accompaniment from Princes Street Gardens. You can watch all of this from an unprecedented, spectacular vantage point from the master bedroom. see below:
"The Bank of Scotland Fireworks Concert is the grand finale to the Edinburgh International Festival and a fitting climax to three weeks of cultural hedonism that is "The Edinburgh Festival". Join the Scottish Chamber Orchestra for a rousing night of some famous film music. The technical and artistic wizards of Pyrovision once again choreograph a stunning display to match the orchestra's exuberant music-making.
As well as in ticketed areas in Princes Street Gardens the Fireworks are visible from various vantage points across the city. You can listen to the concert live on ForthFM and get the full "fireworks" experience wherever you are in the city!
This is an amazing spectacle and perfect for a special occasion or for a visit to Edinburgh never to be forgotten.

Excellently located flat in Edinburgh--ideal for a couple. Morris has furnished his place in a very comfortable style with large comfy sofas in the living room, an excellent quality bed with good linens in the large bedroom, and toasty floor heating in the bathroom. We didn't use the kitchen very much but it is also nicely equipped. The extra bedroom is fairly small.
The building entry way is a little run down but the location is excellent and the flat itself was a lovely home for our week in Edinburgh.
Would stay again on our next trip to Edinburgh.
Don't forget to do the literary pub crawl when you are there1

We loved our stay here. The apartment is large and beautiful and has everything. Amazing views, the best neighborhood, convenient for shopping, busses, all the stores, restaurants, museums, pubs etc. All the amenities including Sky television and free wi-fi made it even better! The owner was very easy to reach and work with. We definitely want to stay here again!
