The Abbeyhill Colonies are a charming group of streets with a great community spirit. They are a favourite with artists. In the local area there are some excellent independent cafes including Century General Store and Red Kite and on Easter Road you'll find the Manna House Bakery and several great small restaurants as well as supermarkets. It's easy to walk to Princes Street from here and many buses are available on London Road. Calton Hill is just along the road and a short climb to the top rewards you with some of the best views over Edinburgh.
This home in located on the ground floor and there's a sunny private front garden with a bench. Perfect for sitting and reading a book or enjoying a glass of wine. This is normally a home and so it's very well equipped. It has a charming atmosphere. The sitting room is a lovely space and when I took the photographs sun was streaming through the window. There's interesting art and books. The double bedroom is pretty and peaceful. The kitchen is lovely and there's a table to seat two. It's well equipped for dining at home. The bathroom has a shower over the bath.

East New Town & Hillside
The East New Town and Hillside area is where it’s at. Running from Scotland Street in the West to Broughton Road in the North, Lower London Road in the East and Regent Terrace in the South. Local resident, Peter Irvine, of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay fame christened the area The East Village.
The highpoint, literally, of the area is Calton Hill. A walk up here is rewarded to magnificent views across the whole of the city and photo opportunities abound on Calton Hill. The National Monument is much climbed and the Nelson Monument was built to look like Nelson’s upturned telescope. The City Observatory is now the home of the Collective Gallery and there’s a cute café there too. Calton Hill is an incredible place to watch the fireworks, The Beltane Festival held there on 30th April is very popular and an enormous torchlight procession on 30th December culminates on the Hill.Read More
