Let yourself in using the key safe and find the essentials including tea, coffee and milk. There are also books, board games and a TV, but there’s plenty to do on your doorstep: you’re in the heart of the creative port district, previously a busy working dock but now a thriving mix of commercial and residential spaces including film studios, artist workshops and galleries.
Quirky cafés and bars are just around the corner as well as a couple of independent bakeries; restaurants include the Michelin-starred Martin Wishart and The Kitchin, both just a few steps away. A local farmers market takes place every Saturday, and Edinburgh city centre is a 20-minute bus ride away, with a stop at the end of the road.
