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

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.

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.

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.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
