This is without a doubt the most unique property I have ever stayed in - if you love antiques and quirkiness then this is the place for you. While it's not located directly in the city centre, the property is very close to Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Palace and is about a 15 minute walk to Princess Street.

There's also a fab newsagents opposite for all your basics and we had a Sainsburys delivery sent before we arrived, which was met and packed away by the lovely house keeper, Fiona. Well above and beyond and much appreciated! I would also recommend doing this as the stairs are quite big so it's a long way up to carry everything! We had an indian takeaway from Easter Road (parallel to Montrose Terrace) on one of the nights and it was so good (Shapla) and noticed a nice cafe and some pubs, so there's plenty to do nearby as well.

I would definitely recommend this to a group of friends - it definitely suited our hen party!
