About The Space
In all the years I've been doing this job, I've never seen a home like this with a large balcony directly underneath Edinburgh Castle. It's magnificent! This wonderful apartment is over two floors. Upstairs is the most fabulous open plan living space which opens to the huge balcony. Here you'll find the very well equipped kitchen, loads of comfy seating and a huge window with sliding doors which opens onto the balcony, which also has outdoor seating. This is the place to sit with a glass of fizz or champagne and soak up the incredible view.
On the lower level you'll find a master bedroom with a smaller balcony and an ensuite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a shower room.
This brilliant home is only available for a short period in the summer.
Grassmarket - 1 minute
The Royal Mile - 5 minutes
Edinburgh Castle - 5 minutes
For anyone visiting Edinburgh, this is a brilliant location, right in the heart of The Old Town. The Grassmarket is a brilliant outdoor space with great alfresco dining, as well as bars and the best ice cream in the city at Mary's Milk Bar. Wonderful Victoria Street is around the corner with all its independent boutiques and from there you can quickly reach Edinburgh Castle and The Royal Mile. You'll definitely be spoilt for choice in this fabulous spot.

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
