Quartermile at Simpson Loan is the most sought after, luxury development in Edinburgh. It's right in the centre of the city with The Meadows on one side and The Old Town on the other, so most of Edinburgh's major attractions like The Castle, The National Museum of Scotland and The Royal Mile are a short walk away. The development is well served with a small supermarket, Soderberg bakery and cafe with those cardamom buns we can't resist, Tribe Yoga and Pure Gym and just beyond the development you'll find the restaurants Union of Genius, Civerino's and Ondine plus a host of other great places to eat and drink. During the Edinburgh Festival this is THE place to stay as all the main venues are in the area.
This lovely home is on the third floor of one the modern blocks. There's lift access and a secure parking space too which is a real bonus. The open plan living room and kitchen has a wall of glass with attractive open views over the development. There's a comfy sofa, a TV with Sky channels, a dining table to seat 4 and the modern kitchen is well equipped for dining at home too.

Concierge at Dickins
We want to make sure that you have the best possible stay in your Dickins home from home, so we've hand picked great people and local businesses to help you do just that.
The owners of this home prefers shorts lets of a month or longer. Very short bookings of less then a week can be booked up to 6 weeks in advance or further in advance where they are filling a gap between existing bookings. We do have other one bedroom homes where bookings of less then a week are always possible. Please contact us and we'll let you know which are the most suitable.
This home has a parking space and the cost for the parking is £75/week. This cost is NOT included in the rental figure our website calculates - it is an additional cost. If you are booking for between 4 and 10 weeks, the parking will cost £60/week and £56.25/week if you are staying for 10 weeks or longer. Please mention if you would like to book parking at the time of booking.
24 hour cool-off period: Providing you book more than fourteen days before the start of your stay, you can cancel your booking within 24 hours of making it and we will refund 100% of any charges.
Cancelling after the booking is confirmed: Once a confirmation of booking has been issued to you via email by Dickins, you are responsible for the total price detailed. If you need to cancel, Dickins will try to relet the period for you and if they are successful, you will be reimbursed with the value of the relet less a £75 + VAT charge. If they are not able to relet the period, you will be responsible for the full rental cost. It may be a good idea to make sure you have travel insurance which covers cancellation.

Lauriston & Bruntsfield
With some of the best cakes on offer in Edinburgh (we do love a cake at Dickins…) and a whole load more besides, there’s a delicious choice of things to do in Lauriston and Bruntsfield. For us Lauriston runs from Fountainbridge and across to Quartermile in the North to Bruntsfield Links in the East, along Strathern Place and the border with Morningside in the South and Gilmore Place in the West.
For a jog, a stroll, a walk with the children, a game of football or a lie in the sun there is fabulous outdoor space in Bruntsfield Links. Bruntsfield Links is one of the oldest golf courses in the world (you can chip and put here for free) and the Golf Tavern which overlooks it was established in 1456. The Meadows run on from Bruntsfield Links creating a huge outdoor space. Quartermile overlooks the Meadows and is the property hot spot of the area. It is much sought after and was designed by Foster + Partners. It comprises luxury apartments, offices and cafes and is on the site of Edinburgh’s old hospital, The Royal Infirmary. The incredibly popular cafe and bakery Peter’s Yard is there (I find it hard to walk past without buying a cardamom bun or a cardamom ice cream in the summer.)Read More
