The space

The apartment is within a modern development on the bank of The Water of Leith,
Edinburgh’s river, in The Shore district of Edinburgh. It is only a 10 minute bus ride
into the centre of this beautiful city from which many of the main tourist attractions
are on hand. The Shore itself is a vibrant neighbourhood with seafood bistros, bars,
cafes and restaurants including two which are Michelin rated. The Ocean Terminal
complex, in which the Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed, is only a 15 minute stroll from
the apartment.

This 1 bedroom ground floor apartment offers easy access and has a secure entry
system.
It has the benefit of ample free residents’ parking. The apartment is
furnished to a high standard and boasts picturesque views of the Water of Leith from
the lounge windows – you may even see an otter or a dipper if you are lucky ! It has a
modern fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine, fridge, microwave and electric
cooker. The shower room has a walk – in shower with heated tower rail whilst the
bedroom has a double bed with fitted wardrobes. The very comfortable lounge has a
flat - screen television, CD player and free WiFi. Heating and hot water are provided
by the electric central heating system. All towels and bed linen are provided. Oh and
do not forget, a welcome pack will await you to help settle you into your lovely home by
the river.

The apartment is close to all amenities – Tesco, ATM, restaurants and bus stops are
approximately 5 minutes walk from the building. The very frequent and reasonably
priced local bus services will take you to the many tourist attractions of Edinburgh,
Princes Street being just a 10 minute bus ride. After a busy day you can return to your
apartment put on your glad rags ( or not as the case may be ) and enjoy the magic of
Leith.

If you’re considering visiting Edinburgh and staying at this flat, I can not recommend it enough. The premises are comfortable and quiet, in a secluded cubbyhole of a neighborhood in lovely Leith. The views of the canal are fantastic, and it’s near the exciting restaurants on the…

The modern flat was in person as it is in pictures. Gill's husband, John met us and explained the house book and the highlights of the flat (even left a fresh carton of milk). For my husband and I this was the perfect place to call home for a week. We came to Scotland for a fam…

The flat was exactly as advertised, and Gill's husband John was there to meet us. He even provided milk and tea things, and, since we made a rather late arrival, some quite thoughtful dinner suggestions. The neighborhood is walkable, with lots of pubs and restaurants, interesting…

Has to be the best location in Edinburgh: In Leith, where we had the best meals of our stay (Fatma, Fishers, King of the Wark, Roseleaf, The Shore, Bond no. 9, etc). A block from the bus which goes through Leith walk to downtown. A bust comes by every 3 to 5 minutes. It's 1 b…
