|Address||Forrest Hill, EH1 2QL Edinburgh, United Kingdom|
|Response time||A few hours|
|Calendar updated||A month ago|
The modern kitchen is well provided with crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchenware, as well as a washing machine, fridge-freezer, cooker and microwave.
The double bedroom, a quiet room overlooking the church, has wall-to-wall carpeting and is well furnished. The shower-room is tiled and has a wash-hand basin, toilet and standard-size power shower (no bathtub).
The apartment looks over Greyfriars Church (built in 1620) and churchyard to the spires and roofs of the Old Town. There are many tales attached to Greyfriars, perhaps the most famous of which is that of Greyfriars Bobby, a faithful Skye terrier. The dog is buried close to his master and his faithfulness is commemorated in a statue opposite the entrance to the churchyard at the junction of George IV Bridge and Candlemaker Row.
Across the road from Greyfriars Bobby are the National Museum of Scotland, an award-winning modern building that holds the national collections, and the adjoining Royal Scottish Museum.
From the apartment it is a short walk along George IV Bridge to the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle or down Candlemaker Row to the picturesque Grassmarket and the more earthy Cowgate, centre of the city’s nightlife. The Royal Mile, the backbone of medieval Edinburgh, connects Edinburgh Castle at one end with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Parliament at the other.
The apartment is close to the main campus of the University of Edinburgh.
During Edinburgh Festivals and the Hogmanay (26.12.-06.01.) there is a minimum stay of 7 nights.

For several days in May, my friend and I had a very comfortable stay here in Edinburgh's Old City. This well-maintained apartment had all of my favorite amenities and was ideally located for excursions to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Arthur's Seat, and whisky tastings. Even before we arrived, the nice man who owns this snug little place (which was surprisingly quiet), kindly made sure that we had milk for our tea. Two other advantages are these: if you are not dragging excessive luggage, you can walk here easily from the train station, and the bus to the airport (cheap!) stops about a block from Bull's Close.
The flaw is lovely and we have had a great time in it. The location is perfect to spend some days in Edinburgh.
Thanks a lot for everything
all went fine, got the keys in time, apartment was nice and clean. the address is very much in center of edinburgh. a lot of nice places are in walking distance!
Very cosy, clean and well equipped apartment in the heart of Edinburgh. Nice kitchen, good shower and great location. The apartment is exactly as you can see on the photos! We stayed in King Stables as a family with 3 generations and everybody had a great time! Very friendly and good service of Vacation Rentals Schotland.
Absolutely loved it here! Beautiful view, clean and spacious apartment. We just booked our second stay for March. Why change a winning team? And this accomodation is a winner for sure!
Very cozy and clean apartment. In the middle of Edinburgh, and therefore very central. Very good care on the part of the landlord, by handing over the keys to the directions all worked out wonderfully. In this way, a thank you to Martin for the welcome wine and pastries.
Sehr gemütliche und saubere Wohnung. Mitten in Edingburgh und daher sehr zentral gelegen. Sehr gute Betreuung von Seiten des Vermieters, von der Schlüsselübergabe bis zu den Wegbeschreibungen hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Auf diesem Weg ein Dankeschön an Martin für den Willkommenswein und das Gebäck.
A spacious quiet apartment, very comfortable beds, bathroom and kitchen wonderful, as described, lovingly decorated, with views of a large maple and the typical small town street. We felt very comfortable! However, the fifth person sleeping on air mattress or sofa. With a rental car we could from here perfectly in the City and in the surrounding countryside. Very well managed by Martin. Highly recommended!
Eine großzügig geschnittene ruhige Wohnung, Betten sehr bequem, Bad und Küche wunderbar, wie beschrieben, liebevoll eingerichtet, mit Blick auf eine großen Ahorn und die typische kleine Stadtstraße. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt! Die fünfte Person schläft allerdings auf Luftmatratze oder Sofa. Mit dem Mietauto konnten wir von hieraus perfekt in die City und in die schöne Umgebung. Sehr gut gemanagt von Martin. Nur zu empfehlen!
