West Scotland Street Lane is located off Scotland Street in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town. You may know Scotland Street from Alexander McCall Smith's Scotland Street series. West Scotland Street Lane is cobbled and full of character with interested homes and buildings. Brilliant Broughton Street is just around the corner and you'll find great local food shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques there. It's one of Edinburgh's most loved streets. You can walk to George Street in 15 minutes from the flat. The tram stop on York Place is a ten minute walk and buses are available on Broughton Street and Dundas Street. 


You'll be charmed as soon as you walk into West Scotland Street Lane and especially when you walk through the gate into your own private garden which is terraced and attractively planted with a large patio area at the bottom.


This home is much loved by the owners and a lot of care and attention has been spent in decorating and furnishing it. It has a sense of a French cottage. It's bursting with character, from the white washed stone walls, to the original range. You walk straight into the open plan living space. There's a table and chairs by the window looking into the garden, a well equipped little kitchen with a dishwasher  and a comfy sofa and chair. Leading on from the living space, there's a large hallway with attractive shelving. The bathroom is here. It's small but perfectly formed with a shower over the short bath. The quiet bedroom is located at the back of this lovely home. The bed is really comfy and there's great quality bedding so you should have a good night's sleep. 


Over the Festival a whole month booking is preferred in this property.


You're sure to be charmed by 20 West Scotland Street Lane. It's a wonderful home from home.

Home Truths

This home has recently changed ownership. Much of the furniture remains, but details will be added by July 17. The furniture won't be exactly the same as in the photographs, but the style and quality will be the same.


The outside stone stairs leading down to the apartment can get a little slippery when wet. Every effort is made to ensure the steps are kept clean and ice free in the winter, but guests should take care.

Over the Festival a whole month booking is preferred in this property.
