About Tamsin Gallagher

Although we now live abroad, we met at university in Edinburgh, and so this city remains close to our hearts. We had many fun days and nights in Edinburgh and like to return regularly to continue to explore the city with our family. We have seen many sides of life in Edinburgh over the years and the wealth of activities and attractions the city offers.

Tamsin Gallagher purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Tamsin Gallagher chose Edinburgh & Lothians

Our desire to return regularly to edinburgh prompted us to purchase a property here. This apartment was spacious, with traditional features but with the potential for modernisation. It now has a contemporary and airy feel. It is close to all of Edinburgh's main attractions, to enable us to use it as a base for our family, and to share with others who also wish to explore the city.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a bright, airy and modern apartment with traditional features. The location makes it easily accessible to all of Edinburgh's attractions, with or without a car.

Amazingly clean and tidy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Bright and stylish rooms, high ceilings, fully fitted kitchen - everything you need. Good location as bus 35 stops just around the corner to bring you right up to the Royal Mile. A small supermarket (Iceland) and a bakery are also just around the corner on Easter Road. We staid for 2 nights and loved the place!

Well appointed apartment in a good location for seeing the main tourist sites in Edinburgh.

Close to Holyrood/Arthur's Seat

  • 3 of 5

Although we arrived quite late due to my misunderstanding of train tables :( , we were met very graciously by Joan who got us settled in. The beds were very comfortable and the sitting room very welcoming and functional. All appliances worked very well. The only detraction was an unpleasant odor in the flat throughout our stay. We realize that it is in an old building and some things are unavoidable. Overall great value for the cost.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to review our accommodation. I am glad to hear that overall you found our apartment comfortable and that you were met with a warm welcome. I am however, very sorry to hear that there was an unpleasant odor throughout your stay. I often stay there myself and this is not normal even though it is an old building. I have contacted our property manager to investigate and resolve this matter. Best regards, Tamsin

Lovely, Comfortable Flat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and my three sons were met by the property manager 30 seconds after we got out of our taxi. Tho the add states that it is a first floor apartment it is actually on the second floor of the building.

It is bright, airy and totally renovated. The rooms are large and have more than enough storage. The beds are comfortable and my kids were very happy to have WiFI. The Royal Mile and EdinburghCastle is about a 20 minute walk. There are mini marts and take away food places just down the street. About a mile away is the big grocery store where we were able to buy stuff for breakfasts and lunch so we could take sandwiches with us. We loved our stay and would recommend it to everyone.
