If you love history but prefer your home to be contemporary, this is the ideal apartment for you. Located in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, you can see Canongate Kirk out of the sitting room window and the Burn's Memorial and Royal High School too. So you have an absolute sense of Edinburgh's rich history all around you but contemporary ease at home. During the Edinburgh Festival, the location of this apartment is hard to beat.
The apartment has secure parking underneath the building, which is an absolute bonus in such a central location. In the sitting room there's plenty of comfy seating, a TV with freeview and a good selection of books. There are two double bedrooms with built in storage and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Wifi is available for guests too.
This home has a parking space and the cost for parking is £20/day. This cost is NOT included in the rental figure our website calculates - it is an additional cost. If you are booking for between 1 and 3 weeks, the parking will cost £100/week and £300/4 weeks if you are staying for 4 weeks or longer. Please mention if you would like to book parking at the time of booking.
This self catering apartment is available for holiday lets, short term and corporate lets, city and weekend breaks and as Edinburgh Festival accommodation.

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

The Old Town is so jam packed with things to do, it is hard to describe in a paragraph. For us The Old Town runs from Mound Place and Market Street to Bristo Square and from Lothian Road to The Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Edinburgh, sitting magnificently as it does looking out over the city. It can be seen from miles around. Listen out for the One O’clock gun every day. The massively popular Edinburgh Military Tattoo plays to thousands here each festival. The Camera Obscura will delight both adults and children alike, as will The National Museum of Scotland. Following a major refurbishment, the museum is world class. Greyfriar’s Bobby keeps watch across the road and a wander around the churchyard of Greyfriars Kirk is fascinating and potentially spooky. If you are a sucker for a ghost story, Mary King’s Close is guaranteed to make you scream and there are many ghost tours starting on the High Street. St Giles Cathedral rises magnificently above the Royal Mile and all the closes that run off it are well worth a day exploring. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, The Queen’s Official Residence in Edinburgh, is stunning and sits opposite The Scottish Parliament.Read More
