Edinburgh is a wonderful vibrant city and this is the perfect apartment to stay in while you explore it. It's an easy walk into central Edinburgh yet it's on a quiet street, with fabulous views and friendly, helpful owners. The apartment itself is homely and well equipped. Hope to be back there before too long!
