Getting around

The apartment is a 15/20 minute walk from Princes Street and all the attractions of Edinburgh. From Elm Row at the top of Leith Walk you will find buses going to all parts of the city. This is about 5 minute walk from the apartment. The York Place tram stop is 7 minute walk from the apartment. I love to walk and find it easy to get around Edinburgh on foot.

Interaction with guest

I try to meet all my guests and show them around, however, if I am unable to meet you there is a key safe at the property. I live close by and I am available if required.
