The spectacular views over the Meadows and beyond from the living space of this luxury Simpson Loan home are very special. The Quartermile development at Simpson Loan is the most sought after development in Edinburgh. The location is superb. It's in the heart of the city - very close to The Royal Mile and all the major attractions like Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh University is also right on the doorstep and in the Edinburgh Festival the location is unbeatable as so many of the major venues - Assembly, Underbelly, The Pleasance and Gilded Balloon are two minutes walk away. Within the development you'll find a small supermarket, a gym as well as a great cafe/bakery and restaurants but being this central, the choice of things to do and places to eat and drink is very wide. Right outside is The Meadows - this is great for a run, a walk, or hanging out on a sunny day.
This beautiful home is in one of the modern buildings. It's on the fourth floor (there's a lift) and so the views are spectacular. The main living space is very well laid out with a kitchen to the left, a dining table seating 6 and the sitting area with lots of comfy seating and TV to the right. There are floor to ceiling sliding doors and a large balcony so you can sit making the most of those views.
There are two lovely double bedrooms - one has an ensuite shower room and there's a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
This is a superb home from home and guests are going to be very happy staying here.
The owner of this home does prefer a month-long booking over the festival period.

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.
Please note that the balcony has a glass balustrade, which is a potential danger for children.
Over the Edinburgh Festival a whole month booking is preferred in this home.
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
