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

My family stayed at Atholl Brae during a trip to Edinburgh in September. We were traveling with an infant and needed a convenient location since we did not have access to a car. The apartment location one block off of the Royal Mile was perfect! Liz, the proprietor, was friendly and helpful from our very first contact and provided us... More

My friends and I rented this flat for a short stay in Edinburgh. It was a fantastic place to stay. Liz was so helpful with everything and the flat was located in a great area. It is quiet but just off the Royal Mile, so really close to all the sites. The wynd it is located down was absolutely adorable.... More

There even was a torch provided as it can get dark at night, Liz had thought of everything. Beautiful and fresh flat with linen, towels spare bed, blankets too if... More

We decided on an apartment for the first time while travelling with our two young-adult children, as we had difficulty finding hotel lodging for 4 in one suite in Edinburgh. And we are all very glad we found and stayed at Atholl Brae! The proprietor Liz set the tone immediately with her excellent and friendly communication and customer service. We... More

Stayed with a party of 5 which flat 1 was able to accommodate pretty well. The flat was very well equipped and spotless. The apartment block is situated on the corner of Calton Road and Old Tolbooth Wynd; about 1/2 way between North Bridge and Holyrood. By car, you'll need to approach from Calton Road, by foot you'll probably come... More

Great place. Great location a stones throw from the royal mile which serves as a brilliant base for your Edinburgh exploration. Equally close to Waverely station too so it doesn't take long to settle yourself in. The owner Liz is very friendly and only too happy to help you.We would stay again with our three young kids.

Booked this accommodation just off Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh with our American guests. It was in an excellent location an easy walk to the castle and other local places of interest, and we used the hop on /off buses to explore further afield, including the Royal Yacht Britannia. The flat was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need... More

Our group took both apartments for three nights sleeping four adults in each apartment. The accommodation was a comfortable fit but would be tight if the suggested extra beds were in use. We found the apartments exceptionally well fitted with good quality furnishings on laminate floors throughout. Kitchen equipment proved more than adequate for our self catering needs with the...

My friend and I stayed for 10 days in the ground floor appartment (no. 1). It was a wonderful holiday. The appartement is at a really central location, just off the Royal Mile. We could visit all the main attractions on foot (Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, National Museum etc.). For the Royal Yacht Britannia you can take a bus on... More
