A superb Scottish themed studio apartment in the lively Grassmarket, surrounded by all the main attractions that Edinburgh has to offer.

The space
Our beautiful Scottish themed studio apartment is located in the heart of the historic old town, overlooking the Grassmarket. It has a lovely feel to it and is full of light, catching the sun for the majority of the day and evening. It has 2 large windows looking west onto West Bow and the Grassmarket precinct, which is lively with restaurants and bars. Sitting at the dining table beside the windows is great for people watching! The Grassmarket is very popular, however, the windows have secondary glazing, ensuring that you get a restful and quiet nights sleep. Perfect!

The flat has LCD Freeview TV and a Bluetooth wireless music unit.

The apartment is open plan, creating a lovely light, airy and homely feel. The kitchen area is to the rear of the apartment and is equipped with a combi/microwave oven, kettle, toaster and halogen hob. All required cooking and dining utensils are in place. That said, there are numerous and varied places to eat right on the doorstep, so you might not want to use the kitchen much!

The bathroom has toilet, wash basin and shower. Towels are provided for your arrival.
There is a cupboard to store luggage and clothes, with hanging space and drawers, however as it is a studio this will only store 2-3 cases.

We are sure you will love the apartment and its location!

Where you’ll be

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

The Grassmarket is a lively, bustling central location, right under the shadow of Edinburgh Castle and minutes from the Royal Mile and Princes Street. The Grassmarket pedestrian precinct is steps away and is popular for dining and socialising Al Fresco when the sun is out. The apartment is in West Bow, a continuation of Victoria Street, famous for its independent and unusual shops. The location is perfect for sightseeing and the City Tour buses stop in the Grassmarket, so you can just hop on! The apartment is only 10-15 minutes walk through the beautiful old town from Waverley Train Station, so getting there is easy. Alternatively, pick up a taxi right outside the station, you will be there in no time!
The Grassmarket is host to a Saturday food, drinks and curios market in the summer. It also is a popular venue for street entertainment and has live performances in the street and on stage during the famous Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The neighbourhood is really in the hub of the city, giving visitors great access to the most popular tourist and historical areas of Edinburgh.
