This is our lovely bright home when we are in Edinburgh. Fantastic 1st floor apartment recently constructed by one of Edinburgh's most respected builders to the highest standards as part of this redevelopment of a Victorian school originally constructed in 1882. The development Won the 2014 Herald "Best luxury home award for 2014 ! " The apartment benefits from your own private parking space and automatic entry/exit gates , a real bonus in a city ! It is a short stroll through the Meadows park to the Historic Old Town of Edinburgh or take one of the regular buses to all parts of this wonderful city. The property is accessed through a spacious well lit and carpeted communal entrance hall and stairs and has an entry phone system. The furnishings are all new and both modern and cosy at the same time as they have been bought to ensure our comfort when we stay there. All our bedding is top quality Egyptian cotton and the beds are new and wonderfully comfortable. In the immediate area is a lovely eclectic range of shops ( great health food ,greengrocers , wet fish , quality small supermarkets ), coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and some excellent takeaways to suit all tastes.

About Sally Dickie
We love Scotland and my Scottish husband , Campbell , who has worked in some far flung parts of the world over the years, but has been working in Gibraltar for nearly 30 years has finally acceded to spending more time in Scotland whilst continuing to work in Gibraltar. We have been coming to Scotland on a regular basis for the last few years and fell in love with Edinburgh ( he is from Glasgow ! ) This is our first step into living more of our lives in Scotland and , although we will not be there personally , we have very trusted people in Lynn and Gabor who will " meet and greet " you and assist you whenever they can. Thanks for taking the time for looking at our Scottish home. Please email me if I can be of any assistance. Best wishes, Sally Dickie.
Sally Dickie purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Sally Dickie chose Bruntsfield
Close to everything ! A really vibrant community with lovely, friendly people and many great wee shops and restaurants. Lots of parkland in the immediate area which has many events , picnicking , cafes , walking , cycle friendly and great views of Arthur's Seat to the East and the universities to the north. Park your car in your own private space and explore the city on foot !
What makes this Apartment unique
Able to walk everywhere but excellent bus services although my husband drives everywhere possible and the property benefits from its own private car parking space - a bonus in a city , easy links to the Edinburgh link road and the road systems to the south , west and north ,but even he is enjoying the lovely walks in and through the parks and into the Auld Toon. Great yoga centre just round the corner. Try the home crushed nut butters from the deli round the corner and the lovely breads ,veg and fruits. Eddies fish shop deserves a mention as it supplies to restaurants all over Edinburgh - Get there early on a Saturday ! Try the Italian food from across the road and the owner playing stylish piano when not cooking ! - BYO wines.

Lovely flat in a great location
Top notch location and flat. The owner responded quickly to any questions. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this rental
Thank you for taking the time to review my apartment .Really happy you enjoyed your time there .
Kind regards Sally .
We totally enjoyed our stay at Sally’s. The unit is large, bright and well appointed. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed for cooking and eating. The bedrooms are comfortable and everything was clean.
The location is excellent with a small grocery store and a very nice coffee shop on the corner. A short walk across the Meadows will get you to the places you want to visit and you still have the quiet of a residential neighbourhood.
Sally is very responsive and answers questions very quickly. We were able to check in before the normal time which was very helpful.
We would return here on our next visit.
We loved our stay at the apartment/flat. The renovation of the apartment and building was very well done, everything from the outside stairwell to the use of space and lighting in the apartment. I can understand why it has won awards. The apartment was very well maintained and stocked with everything we needed. Excellent documentation on how to use everything in the apartment. The location was good with easy access to the historic part of Edinburgh and convenient access to local markets/restaurants.Overall we had a fantastic experience!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review .

Coast/Beach: The coast can be reached quickly by car or train. There are numerous golf courses and coastal walks and the Kingdom of Fife is close by with it's lovely fishing villages and , of course , St Andrews , the home of golf. Travel: Fly to Edinburgh airport and from there the new tram link will take you into the city centre as will the dedicated bus service and from there a short taxi ride will bring you to our apartment. The cost of a taxi from the airport to our apartment is slightly over £ 20 or hire a car and park it in your own private space. Waverly station is Edinburgh's mainline station which services the rest of the UK. Distances: Edinburgh is a lovely wee city and you can walk most places from the apartment. Within easy reach by car or public transport is Glasgow and the towns and cities which guard the approaches to the Highlands and the border regions all of which are easily visited in a day trip. Further Details: Edinburgh has so many things to do that the best way to plan your trip is to purchase a guide book on Scotland or go on line and see what "wonders" can be seen and done in the fabulous city and country ( we do have guide and other interest books in the apartment )
