Edinburgh, Scotland
This is a newly built, contemporary one bedroom apartment, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in Edinburgh's New Town just 10 minutes' walk from Princes Street and 5 Minutes from Stockbridge. This is a perfect location for a city break without the noise and bustle of many of Edinburgh's city centre apartments. Completely stocked with brand new very high quality furnishings and equipment in November 2011.

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is well situated for anyone wishing to see the city sights but also for someone looking for a quiet, relaxed stay. The city centre is only 10 minutes walk or less by bus with easy access to the castle, art galleries, museums and shops as well as Edinburgh's abundance on restaurants and bars. The local area has much to offer also with several cafes and restaurants within a few minutes walk. The Stockbridge area is just 2 minutes away with many more shops, cafes and restaurants. Edinburgh is renowned for it many green spaces so for Stockbridge guests can access the Water of Leith walk, Inverleith Park and The Royal Botanic Gardens.

Edinburgh is a compact city so all of the city centre attractions and sights can be accessed on foot. However, if you don't fancy walking Lothian buses services 23 and 27 run every 10 minutes from close to the apartment. A single journey will cost £1.60 or £4 of an unlimited day ticket which can be used on any Lothian bus route throughout the city. From Waverley Bridge several tour companies run hope on hop off services to the city's attractions.
