You have your own, rather grand, front door straight into the wide hallway. All is light, bright and beautiful with interesting furniture, good art, painted wooden floors and raw plaster walls and ceilings. The sash windows with working shutters let light pour in and there’s a Bose speaker, a squishy sofa and bookshelves full of Scottish books for rainy days.
The kitchen has all the gear you need along with recipe books in case you want to experiment. There are plenty of shops within walking distance, and places to eat out or get a takeaway but you’ll find tea, coffee and basics until you can get there, along with Edinburgh chocolates. On summer evenings you may choose to sit in the communal garden, or join locals in the park at the end of the street.
If you like to breakfast early just cross the road to a café which opens at 7 and serves good food. Set off for artisan producers, quirky shops and a bustling atmosphere.
