The Marchmont House, Edinburgh 4* Accommodation
Edinburgh, Edinburgh & Lothians, Scotland
Additional Location Information
The City of Edinburgh is famous world-wide for its Festivals and its Castle. Like many iconic cities, it is compact and is easy to walk around. The Castle acts as a landmark that can be seen anywhere. August is Festival time when the world arrives downtown for the famous Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe. June & July are also now home to the Film Festival, Book Festival and other, smaller events are popping up all the time. December brings the Christmas markets as well as the impressive annual Hogmanay celebration. In between these times Edinburgh offers the visitor a fantastic range of attractions; shopping in world-class stores such as Harvey Nichols, and the best restaurants in Scotland with offerings from Martin Wishart, David Bann and many, many more.
Edinburgh is also a university town and has a large population of transient students. This means that as well as gourmet-style restaurants there is also a large contingent of well-priced local fare and many pubs and bars offering cheaper drinks and live music. There is something for everyone; from the chic bars in George Street to the attractions of Leith.
Bruntsfield (where the Marchmont House is located) is a young family village, just south west of the castle between Morningside, Tolcross, The Meadows, Marchmont and Fountainbridge. Like London and New York, these villages-in-the-city are self-contained and worth exploring in their own right. Most locals entertain themselves in these villages as the City Centre (Downtown) can be expensive. The Townhouse is located equistant from the villages of Bruntsfield, Marchmont & Morningside. All are within 500m walk in either direction.
Highlights in Bruntsfield; Peckhams Deli, Bisque (bar/restaurant), Papalinos (Italian), Montpeliers (bar/restaurant), Howies (restaurant), Cafe Grande (Spanish), Lee On (Chinese), Lemon Grass (Thai). Also a Tesco Metrol at Holy Corner.
Highlights in Marchmont; Earl of Marchmont (bar), Sweet Melindas (restaurant), Eddies (fishmonger), Black Medicine (coffee shop), Toast (cafe), Artista (cafe). A number of grocery stores for milk, bread, news, etc.
Highlights in Morningside; Waitrose (supermarket), many coffee shops (Nero, Costa), Merlin (bar), many restaurants (Nepalese, Indian, Spanish)
