Bright, spacious, peaceful room, en suite, with sunny terrace + sun recliners, 2 comfy armchairs inside for relaxing, + looking west for sunsets - if you are lucky! Close to city centre, free parking. Access to kitchen / dining room + garden. One minute walk to well stocked local shop + bus stop direct to :- centre, old town, new town, theatres, galleries, train station, + airport shuttle. Interesting nearby walks, to hill and pond. Easy and interesting walks into town and festival venues.

The space
Bright, colourful, slightly quirky home in safe, leafy suburb. Easy access city centre, on foot or by bus. Spectacular views to Arthur's Seat + Blackford Hill, both lovely spaces for having a country- type walk in the city. Most of the fireworks from Edinburgh Castle at the New Year festivities and throughout the festival in August, can be seen from your terrace.

Your room is a peaceful haven after a hard day sightseeing + exploring the nearby centre. You have, as well as a comfy sofa bed, 2 big armchairs, a kettle + a fridge, so you don't even have to leave your room to have your morning tea or coffee, + a light breakfast. It’s almost like having your own private flat, all that’s missing is a cooker! One minutes walk away is a well stocked local shop with delicious croissants.

You have access to the well stocked airy kitchen/ dining room, + the large sunny, garden with swing.

The penthouse has steep steps and is unsuitable for young children + those with mobility problems, I am afraid.

Guest access
Guests will be welcome to share the use of the airy, modern kitchen /dining room which has all the usual facilities

There is a sunny garden with a lovely grassed area containing a swing + a pond which you are welcome to enjoy.

There will be no other airbnb guests except you.

The area is residential, safe +quiet + Blackford Hill is nearby where you can enjoy walking in a glen, by a river and a pond, and enjoy 360' spectacular views from the top, with views of Fife, the Forth bridges the Pentland hills etc. It is a 15 to 25 min interesting walk into the centre, or a 1 min walk to nearby bus stop + well stocked shop.
Edinburgh is a good place to base yourself to explore the mountains + lochs of Scotland, as well as the many local castles + sites of historical significance.
