The Experience

On an elegant 1850s Georgian street, close to the centre but nicely tucked away, is a smartly renovated flat for two. Everything has been carefully considered: Dyson hot and cold fans, espresso machine, a kitchen fit for a chef. But also art books, games and New York abstract art on the walls.

It’s the sort of place you can easily spend time hanging out after a busy day or evening soaking up Edinburgh’s delights. There’s a plush comfy sofa and daybed to lounge on, a huge TV, cards and games to play. Pour a wee dram (a bottle is left for guests) at the drinks cabinet and sit out in your private courtyard, it has a gas fire to keep you toasty, even on chilly Scottish nights.

The kitchen is immaculate and pretty dreamy for whipping up meals but you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out, whatever you fancy you’ll find it in cosmopolitan Edinburgh. Don’t leave without visiting the castle.

A cool little base from which to explore the city, with lots of quirky artwork which you can buy if you like. It's generous too - find whisky, umbrellas, shortbread, milk in the fridge. And a baseball hat!

The neighbourhood

You're in the beating heart of the city, yet tucked away on a quiet street, so you can walk pretty much anywhere: Princes Street and its lovely gardens are round the corner. There are great places to eat all within a short walk: Kanpai serves the best sushi, Love Crumbs for tea and cake, Peppers (breakfasts and lunches), Timbers Yard hits the spot for dinner. Hop on a bus to the Botanic Gardens.

Local points of interest from James & LeeAnn Wheatcroft

  • Castle views at the entrance make this the best place in Edinburgh to watch Festival or New Year fireworks at the castle from the comfort of your private outdoor courtyard.
  • The flat is situated in a very central location with Princes Street and the Grassmarket a three minute walk away.
  • The Usher Hall, The Lyceum Theatre and the Filmhouse cinema are right on your doorstep offering a cornucopia of cultural events.
  • There are excellent restaurants and bars nearby, including Stuart Muir's "Dine' restaurant. Stuart still holds the accolade of being the youngest Scottish chef to be awarded a coveted Michelin Star.
  • Edinburgh's famous "One Spa" is across the street in the Sheraton Hotel, including relaxing spa treatments and a rooftop hydropool.
  • Pick up fantastic local Scottish produce at the weekly Saturday morning farmers market on Castle Terrace.
