About The Space
The Painter's Studio is extra special and completely unique. It has it all - views, history, style, location and romance. The star of the show is the octagonal living space. There are three huge windows giving a bird's eye view over the city to Princes Street and beyond to Fife. This room was once the studio for Allan Ramsay, the society portrait painter. He painted his portrait of Bonnie Prince Charlie in this very room. It is incredible to imagine the history and famous people who have spent time here over the centuries.
The whole apartment has an absolute sense of calm and style. Everywhere you'll find interesting things. Relaxing in the comfy sofas, you'll find yourself drifting away, gazing at the spectacular views and changing skies. There's a pair of binoculars to make the most of it. all too The dining table is perfect for romantic meals and the kitchen is well equipped if you'd like to cook at home, although in this location with so many restaurants nearby, you'll probably eat out. There's a Nespresso machine for that all important morning coffee though!
The bedroom is cosy and romantic with a door to the balcony and views over the city. On the balcony, you'll find a table and chairs. It must be one of the best tables in the city! The bed is very comfy and there are lovely linens to make sure you sleep well here. The shower room is a large space with a good quality shower.
Outside to the front of the building there are stunning shared private gardens, an incredible luxury in this central location.

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
