Edinburgh's Royal Mile (moments from the property door) is the heart of Scotland's historic capital. A short walk away is the Grassmarket, an area steeped in the city's colourful history.
The Royal Mile
The Royal Mile runs through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, connecting the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, perched high on a base of volcanic rock, with the splendorous Palace of Holyroodhouse, resting in the shadow of Arthur's Seat. The Mile is overlooked by impressive, towering tenements, between which cobbled closes and narrow stairways interlock to create a secret underground world.
Peppered with superb attractions such as The Real Mary King’s Close or the Scottish Storytelling Centre, historical sites including St Giles' Cathedral and some of the best eating and drinking spots in the city, the Royal Mile offers much to see and do. For a glimpse of recent history, be sure to visit the ultra-modern Scottish Parliament, a striking building boasting a cutting-edge design.
Once a medieval market place and site for public executions, the Grassmarket area is now a vibrant area buzzing with lively drinking spots and eclectic shops. Its detailed medieval architecture, stunning castle views and dynamic atmosphere make it one of the city’s most-loved areas, frequented by tourists, students and professionals alike.
There are bus routes moments from the apartment and taxis ranks... we would highly recommend NOT having a hire car- parking isn't the easiest!
Please note that Old Fishmarket Close is a very steep street, perhaps not best suited for elderly guests or guests with mobility issues. Also there is no parking on Old Fishmarket Close- it is best to explore the city on foot from this apartment!
