Most importantly I have to thank our hosts, Kate and David! We were greeted by Kate, shown the apartment and told how certain things worked. The kitchen was beautifully equipped and there was milk in the refrigerator and honey in the cupboard. The special touches around the apartment made us feel right at home. There was even a cleverly drawn framed map in the entryway to help us acclimate ourselves to the city with plenty of books and brochures to assist with our Edinburgh adventure.
The location is absolutely perfect! We were able to walk to the grocery store and stock up for the week. We walked to every place that we wanted to visit in the city and were easily able to find bus 37 to visit the Rosslyn Chapel and bus 35 to see the Britannia. We even went to St Patrick's for mass, which was right down the street.
It was so nice to be able to get the most out of our week long stay in Edinburgh during the day and then be able to go "home", cook dinner and relax in the evenings.
Again, a heart felt thank you to Kate and David.
