    Our lovely and romantic 4-star graded, 2-bedroom Park Apartment, is in Pilrig House, an A-Listed, 17th-century Scottish Townhouse (built 1638), which has a distinguished history & wonderful literary connection with Robert Louis Stevenson; it was his mother's family's home - as a child, RLS often visited & played in the gardens here - he mentions Pilrig House in his novels Kidnapped and Catriona.

    Pilrig House is uniquely located on the edge of a tranquil park, yet is only a 15-20-minute stroll (just over a mile), or 5 minutes by bus (bus-stops within 5 mi...

    Additional Location Information
    Edinburgh has been nominated as the "˜Best Place to Live in the UK" and, as listed in the Top 10 Travel Destinations, is recognised as one of the world's most beautiful and historic cities.

    At Pilrig House, you are in the heart of the city just a15-20 minute walk (just under 1 mile) from Princes Street - Edinburgh's main street, and all of Edinburgh's main attractions. But, you'd be forgiven for thinking that you're in the middle of the Scottish countryside.

    Why? To begin with, there's the greenery. People tell us that staying in Pilrig House is like staying on a country estate. And then there's the peace. Our parkland location is wonderfully tranquil, and the House's thick stone walls ensure that any noise has a long way to go before it disturbs your relaxation.

    From Pilrig House, you are also a 10-minute walk from the fashionable Shore area of Leith - Edinburgh's historic port area, which boasts many recommended wine bars &amp...

We traveled to Edinburgh with a friend, so we were three in the Park Apartment, and it was just perfect for us. The hostess is a genius at furnishing everything you could possibly need, from the kitchen to the bath to the living room. High quality all around, and so thoughtful. Quiet spot on Pilrig Park, close to the Leith...

Our second trip to Pilrig, having previously stayed as a couple in October we returned with mum . The owners are so kind ( nothing too much trouble) and will help give advice or as much privacy as you want.
