Gilmore Place is situated in a fabulous location nestled between Tollcross and Bruntsfield. There is a fantastic selection of food shops, bistros, bars and cafes right on your doorstep. Bruntsfield is a vibrant area of the city and is only a 20 minute walk to Princes Street. It's a fabulous location for the Edinburgh festival as all the major Festival venues - Assembly, Underbelly and Gilded Balloon can be reached in less than a fifteen minutes walk along the Meadows.
This is normally a home and you'll immediately be able to tell how much it's cared for. It's bright and charming and is known as the sanctuary in the city by the owner's friends. There's a private sun trap patio garden with a table and chairs to sit and relax with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. The double bedroom is lovely and quiet with plenty of hanging space and good quality linen for a great night's sleep. The shower room has a great shower and the sitting room has lots of comfy seating and a fold out table. Off the sitting room you'll find a small kitchen but it has everything you could possibly need i.e coffee machine, Nutribullet etc.
Any guest choosing the sanctuary in the city, is going to be glad they did.

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
