About our home

Spacious and comfortable home on top two storeys of the building in a quiet street looking onto Arthur's Seat on one side and the Pentland Hills on the other. Great family home – large, beautifully decorated rooms with high ceilings and period features. Playroom with games and toys, plus full-size fold-away table tennis set.

The historic Old Town city centre and its main tourist attractions are within easy walking distance but can also be reached by a choice of nearby bus services. A stay at our home is the perfect opportunity to enjoy Edinburgh's summer arts festivals, the famous New Year celebrations, as well as being a great base from which to explore other parts of Scotland and the north of England.

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.
