Just five minutes walk from Broughton Street shops, cafes and nightlife and tram stop, Waverley station, Princes Street, George Street and a scenic stroll to the Botanics, yet on a very quiet cobbled street. The flat is on the second floor. Enjoy the sunny double guestroom and your own private bath, shower and loo in this gorgeous large 200-year old historic flat with loads of character.

The space
COVID-CLEAN: I adhere to the Air bnb cleaning code and there is hand sanitiser available as well as paper towels and your own personal towels.

I run food walking tours in Edinburgh, so very happy to give you info and advice about what to see and where to go. The flat is in a fabulous location: great bars cafes and restaurants on Broughton Street
The Stand - great comedy all five minutes away on York Place
St Andrew Square - for Christmas markets, comedy, food and George St bars and Assembly Rooms for conferences. Also very near for larger Christmas Market on Princes St. Easily accessible from the main train station by foot 10 minutes and five minutes walk from the St Andrew Square tram stop. So well placed for Murrayfield concerts and rugby matches. And a 20 minute walk to access the Old Town and Castle
The second-floor flat is on a very quiet cycle route so good nights sleep guaranteed - especially with wooden shutters and curtains to keep light out.
Scotland Street has been made famous by local author Alexander McCall Smith's series of Scotland St books which are available to read.

The double bedroom has two bedside tables with reading anglepoises so room is cosy but light and airy with views over to the gardens in Drummond Place. There is a kettle, tea and Nespresso coffee in the guest bedroom so guests can enjoy a hot drink in bed without moving very far!

There is free parking directly outside the flat on Drummond Place from 5.30pm - 8.30am Monday - Friday and free over weekends. Other times limited to four hours at a time and can be paid using your mobile phone.

I was born and brought up in Edinburgh - then lived in London and Hong Kong where I wrote about food. Since my return to Edinburgh over ten years ago, I made a television series called The Woman Who Ate Scotland - where I ate and cycled my way all round Scotland. I am still passionate about cycling - in fact the flat is on cycling route 75. I love to cook and am a qualified nutritionist and author of cookbook Eat Well published by Hachette.
I run a food walking tour company in Edinburgh called Edinburgh Food Safari where I take guests on a whirlwind tour of 6 bars and restaurants covering a variety of Scottish cuisines from haggis to marshmallows with whisky and gin! (Website hidden by Airbnb)
I share my flat with my physiotherapist boyfriend Mick and we both really enjoy being air bnb hosts and love recommending places for people to go and see and eat - and we look forward to making you welcome in my two-hundred year old home. :

During your stay

I work at home in the kitchen and also run food walking tours called Edinburgh Food Safari but am on hand for advice and help. I really enjoy meeting people and helping them discover the less known nuggets of Edinburgh - I leave a welcome pack on the bed with ideas of interesting things to see and do in Edinburgh plus an iconic Tunnocks teacake to welcome you to 1 Scotland Street.
