Located on a gorgeous street surrounded by some of Edinburgh's best local and independent restaurants, cafes, shops and bars, this is such a great area for visit to Edinburgh or business trip. Also only a short walk into the city and to all of Edinburgh's main attractions. Two of Edinburgh's most infamous traditional bars are on the street- the Bailey and the Antiquary- where you can enjoy a proper Auld Scottish pub (with a selections of fine ales and whiskey and regular folk music nights). The Last Word cocktail bar is only a minute away, an exclusive hideaway, where the drinks are five star.

Edinburgh is exploding with life during the famous Fringe Festival & Hogmanay, but it is also just as vibrant all year round. The apartment is in the heart of Stockbridge, just to the North of the City's central New Town - and there is plenty to see and do right on your doorstep. Stockbridge has its own market every Sunday, with premium local produce and Scottish crafts. It also has its own annual Stockbridge Festival for 9 days at the end of June and the famous charity duck race where 1000 ducks are launched into the Water of Leith, which winds it's way through the area.
It is an area that has traditionally attracted creative professionals. It houses the coveted ' Stockbridge Colonies', 11 parallel streets built to provide housing for the artisan class working on Edinburgh's flamboyant New Town Mansions. As such, whilst lesser in scale the buildings of Stockbridge were generously detailed by this highly skilled community of craftsmen with ornate cornicing, Georgian sash windows and stunning quality architectural features.
There are many fabulous cafes, restaurants and bars in the area, and plenty of takeaways for business travellers- a choice for every taste.
Inverleith Park, The Botanical Gardens and the Water of Leith are all within 5 minutes offering stunning backdrops for a stroll, jog or picnic.
The flat is just off St Stephen Street, a curving Georgian street of flats with the basements and ground floors accommodating a series of antique shops, bars and offices. St Stephens Place is a small spur on its north side, it once lead to the old Stockbridge Market, of which the original entrance stone archway still stands which the flat overlooks.
At the end of St Stephens Street, the St Stephens Street Church is a prominent Edinburgh Landmark, designed by Architect William Playfair. From here it is only about a 10 minutes walk directly up Howe Street to George Street, Princes Street and the main attractions of the city.
No need for a car! The apartment is so central that all the city centre attractions and transport links are within easy walking distance. In fact I'd recommend not bringing a car into the city centre unless you absoluteley need to. There is on street parking available immediately outside the flat but it can get a little expensive (£2.40/hr). Waverley Train station is a 20 minute walk from the apartment (easiest to get a taxi with luggage). The airport is only a 30 minute bus or tram ride away. The airport bus (no100) runs to Waverley Station from the airport. The new Edinburgh Trams are also now running from the airport to the city centre. Princes Street and George St are also only a 10 minute walk. There are many buses along Princes Street, connecting to most routes around the city. Taxis are usually easy to pick up pretty much anywhere in Edinburgh,. Best place from the flat is just around the corner on Stockbridge's high street- Raeburn Place.
