We will be pleased to welcome you to Edinburgh, and happy to offer help and advice, so that you have the best time possible. Friendly, personal service is what we do well. You will see many reviews from our former guests on TripAdvisor and we're pleased to have achieved 4 star status from Visit Scotland. Lovely comfort for 4 adults per apartment, privacy for 2 couples, comfort for up to 5 guests (cots and folding beds are available for children - there are additional charges for extra people, folding or sofa beds and/or cots) The apartments are located in a purpose-built modern building, down a little lane, literally a stone's throw from the Royal Mile. The Wynd itself comes through a tight tunnel at one end, so there is very little passing traffic. Blair Angus apartment is on the ground floor with fully level access throughout; Atholl Brae apartment is reached by a short staircase to the first floor. Each apartment provides a warm, welcoming and comfortable lounge, with a feature 'living flame effect' fire and two comfortable leather settees, as well as a TV, DVD/CD player an i-pod dock and free wi-fi. The fully fitted kitchen, with dining area, is off the lounge. Both bedrooms are accessed from the hallway, as is the main bathroom. All of the beds have high quality, comfortable mattresses. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a fitted wardrobe and an en-suite with a shower, toilet and wash-hand basin.The second bedroom has twin beds, which may on request be fitted together. Again, there is a fitted wardrobe. The family bathroom has a bath with a shower over as well as a toilet and wash hand basin. The apartments are well insulated and warm - the heating is effective and the showers powerful. (We also provide a tower fan cooler for the warmest of days and nights.)More

Interaction with guests
We generally meet and welcome all of our guests - we don't have an on-site reception, though ... so need to know in advance when you will arrive. We'll probably already have been in touch with you before your arrival, and will be happy to help and advise you, before and during your stay.

About the neighbourhood
Easy walking distance to many historic buildings and attractions, including the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh Castle, the Museum of Scotland and the Scottish National Art Gallery. Shops, restaurants, bars, night clubs a-plenty (but not so nearby that you are likely to hear them). Edinburgh is a green city and there are many parks - The Queen's Park, is within easy walking distance from the apartment - it has several lochs, a ruined castle and Arthur's Seat to climb, for fabulous panoramic views.
Getting around
The apartments are right in the centre of the Old Town, so if you're able to; walk wherever you can, if it's local. I would call all of the Royal Mile and Old Town local - so this includes the Castle, Holyrood Palace, the National Museum, Dynamic Earth and Arthur's Seat, as well as the Grassmarket and The Mound, which leads down, through magnificent views, to Princes Street. Further afield? ... Edinburgh has an excellent local bus and tram service, some of which pass very nearby - up and down the Royal Mile. Longer distance buses and trains can whisk you off, from the very nearby Waverley Station - for day and longer trips to, for instance; Glasgow, Stirling Castle or The Trossachs. You can also take organised day tours, with guides.
