Über dieses Inserat
Overlooking the water, our sunny flat is on The Shore – think historic pubs, independent cafes and Michelin restaurants. 5 mins from Royal Yacht Britannia and ‘hop on-off’ tour buses, it’s the perfect base. Free parking, 20 mins to Castle/Royal Mile.
The apartment used to be our home and is designed with comfort in mind – essential after a day of sight-seeing when you want to put your feet up.
A cosy double bedroom, spacious living room with a dining table, and modern kitchen and bathroom make up the apartment. It is on the second floor of our building, accessed by an elevator or by stairs.
The kitchen is fully equipped, and with little touches like an espresso machine and a dishwasher, we hope your stay will be as easy as possible.
We also provide free wi-fi, freeview television, a collection of books we’ve enjoyed, alongside our own guide to the local area.
The apartment building overlooks the 19th-century Victoria Swing Bridge, which is now a pedestrian walkway connecting you with The Shore, and home to swans and their cygnets in spring!

We love Leith. Our family are ‘Leithers’ going back at least 5 generations, and we can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Edinburgh.
Leith sits on the water and has been Edinburgh’s port for centuries. The area’s sea-faring heritage can be seen everywhere, from the pubs and restaurants lining the waterfront, serving freshly caught seafood, to the sailors’ brothel which is now a luxury hotel with an excellent cocktail menu.
Our apartment is based on The Shore – an area overlooking Leith’s pretty harbour. It’s home to lots of lovely eateries, independent shops and galleries, as well as supermarkets and lots of transport options, making it a great base for visiting Edinburgh.
5 minutes from the flat is the Royal Yacht Britannia, a former residence of the British Royal Family. In 2016 it was rated the top visitor attraction in Scotland for the tenth year running by VisitScotland.
The Shore is also the start (or the finish!) of the Water of Leith. This is a beautiful riverside walk that will take you up to Edinburgh’s city centre and beyond, for example to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art or the Royal Botanic Gardens. It’s a lovely way to walk around the city. You can even download a free audio tour from the Water of Leith’s official website.
Car: if you bring a car, the apartment has a free parking space that will be available for you to use.
Bus: Edinburgh’s buses cost £1.60 per journey, and day tickets and other promotions are available. There are several buses routes which depart from Leith and will take you to the city centre, including the No. 22, which runs 24 hours a day and whose route covers Princes Street, Waverley Train Station and Edinburgh Airport.
Hop on hop off tour bus: the Royal Yacht Britannia is located at the shopping centre, Ocean Terminal, just 5-minutes’ walk from the apartment and this is also a bus stop for many of Edinburgh’s tour buses.
Taxi: there is a taxi rank on The Shore, where taxis can usually be found both at day and at night. Uber taxis are also available.
We will also leave a phone number for local taxis in our welcome pack.
