“We enjoyed our time at this lovely home. Great location, close to frequent buses, corner store and easy to walk in to the city. The kitchen was great with lots of space and equipment and the evening sun was delightful in the sitting room. Really could not ask for more. Thank you for sharing your home with us and hope that you will come to Jamaica some time. Warm regards Elizabeth and Jaheim”
Cluny's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Cluny's house was absolutely marvelous. It is so big and warm and full of charm. It's also in a perfect location to explore Edinburgh. We were able to walk to town in less than 20 minutes. Cluny was very responsive to any questions we had. I HIGHLY recommend Cluny's home to anyone wanting a relaxing base to explore Edinburgh.”
“We loved this place, it was full of charm and personality. I have to say that it is much more beautiful than in the pictures, spacious and full of light and charming details. Despite being out of the city center, it is perfectly located close to a bus stop, so you can get there directly in a few minutes. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet. Communication with Cluny is fluent and efficient. ”
“We were delighted to stay in Cluny's house. The house is very spacious. It is quiet yet close to close to the main road where one can easily catch the bus to downtown. We had no problem to find parking space in the street.”
“We arrived at Clunys lovely family home on the 23rd of December. We entered a family home that was filled with Christmas spirit including a fabulously decorated real Xmas tree, with chocolate decorations that our son discovered, and knew instantly this was going to be a great 5 day stay. Not only was there enough fire wood to keep us warm but a lovely kitchen to cook in. Our two children settled into their new room with no hesitation. We also got to spend Xmas morning walking to Arthur's seat and enjoying a very memorable dinner with the next door neighbour, who we thought of dearly. A wonderful memorable experience one which we are forever thankful. Always welcome at ours anytime. ”
Where is it?
We live in the Priestfield area of south-central Edinburgh just a five-minute walk from Holyrood Park and Arthur's Seat, which you can see from our upper storey windows. The Park has many running and walking trails, north down the hill, for example, to Holyrood Palace and the new Parliament, or south past the loch to the Sheep's Heid pub in Duddingston Village (recently frequented by the Queen!) The Royal Commonwealth Pool and Gym facilities are also a couple of minutes walk up the road, with the Salisbury Arms restaurant, bar and beer garden opposite. The immediate area has a local convenience store as well as a shopping centre with supermarket nearby (3min by car; 15min walk).
The bus stop at the end of the street has frequent services into the city centre/downtown where you can explore the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Old and New Towns. The bus ride to the centre is 10mins but the walk via the Meadows and University area is only 30mins.
