This place is amazing. It is a only a 100 feet from the Royal mile. The views from the apartment cannot be beat. Katie knows how to make you feel welcome. Will definitely seek this place out again if I can return to Edinburgh.

I'm from Edinburgh and love living in this wonderful city. I enjoy cycling, good food, dancing and spending time with friends. Edinburgh is a good city for cycling in even though its a bit hilly, but there are some wonderful routes that take you round on the old dismantled railwa…
