Where is it?
Our home is located in the desirable residential area of Duddingston, which is just ten minutes from all the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh City Centre and also within walking distance of the sea-side town of Portobello. Our unique location affords you the best of both worlds, a city break and sea-side holiday all rolled into one!
We have a 24-hour Asda-Walmart Hyper-Market located just 5 minutes away and a large retail shopping complex which is about the same distance. There are of course local shops in the immediate area.
Portobello has long sandy beaches, promenade, independent local shops, restaurants, bars, a fitness centre, swimming pool, Turkish baths and steam rooms. There are also two very good golf courses nearby.
Also within walking distance is the famous Holyrood Park where you climb Arthur's Seat (an old volcanic rock) for spectacular sky-line views of the entire city, sit by the lake and feed the swans, or visit Holyrood Palace and maybe catch a glimpse of our Royal family!
Venturing into Edinburgh City Centre is easy as we are on a very good (regular and reliable) bus route ~ journey time about 10 - 20 minutes (depending on traffic and time of day). If going in by car, then you can drive through Holyrood Park which cuts the journey time in half.
