Epicurean Clerk is 150 years old but has all the modern conveniences while retaining all the original features. It was my family home for 11 years so hopefully its look and feel reflect this.

It is full of charm and retains many original features such as 5 fireplaces, high ceilings, wood floors, hearth in the kitchen, elaborate cornices, working shutters, door bell above main door and even a small bit of the original wall paintings/stencils that were once fashionable in the capital!

Beautiful apartment. Huge, bright, clean and enviable decor. We stayed with extended family for just a few nights but wished we could stay longer. All our dealings with Michele and her rep in Edinburgh were swift, professional and friendly. Highly recommended.

A group of us stayed here for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and everyone thought the place was amazing, it caters very well to a big group because it has so many rooms - not an easy find in Edinburgh. A couple of the rooms do have very high cabin beds so may not be appropriate for all but we just...

About the neighborhood
Edinburgh is facinating architecturally. The old town was built, then buildings were built on top of the buildings, then alleyways were closed in to create yet more living space. It's a virtual rabbit warren. The old town also houses one of the oldest Camera Obscuras in the world. The new town, in contrast, is grand, and very thoughtfully laid out in squares, with many, if not most of the buildings built in the Georgian Style. There are galleries and museums everywhere, not to mention Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood House, and the new Scottish Parliament.<BR><BR>Edinburgh, along with Glasgow, are also the cradles of the Scottish Enlightenment. Many of the ideals laid out in the US Constitution come from philosphers of the Scottish Enlightenment, and many of the actual authors we... more
