The apartment was just off the Royal Mile and so convenient to everything. The owner provided many thoughtful touches and was very helpful in every way. She provided great and helpful information . Th suggestions for restaurants were all excellent and we probably wouldn't have found them on our own. I would highly recommend this apartment.

We just returned from our UK trip where we spent a week at the Atholl Brae Royal Mile. It was perfect for our family to use as a base of operations to explore Scotland. The apartment was clean, spacious, and very comfortable for our group of 2 adults and 3 children, ages 7, 9, and 11. The flat had two... More

Great central location for the old town and new town, with shops, restaurants and sightseeing on the door step. The apartment was clean and spacious with the owners adding thoughtful little touches that made staying in the apartment so easy.

The Atholl Brae Royal Mile is the perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. It is just off the Royal Mile and within walking distance of all the main areas in the Old Town you would want to visit.

Everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a good range of cooking equipment if you want to self-cater. Five minutes walk from Waverley Station and just off the Royal Mile. Plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants nearby, but just far enough from the Main Street to be quiet even at busy times. Owners' communication is exceptionally good, and they... More
