Luxury, 4 star Visit Scotland accredited, apartments, right in the heart of the historic Royal Mile, in Edinburgh's Old Town. - Blair Angus has fully level, disabled access to ground floor apartment which is now separately listed, on our partner sites - Atholl Brae is our first floor apartment - up a short flight of stairs from street level. 2 Very beautiful apartments in an ideal location - OK, yes, we're VERY biased. We are only 2 minutes walk from the Royal Mile, 7 minutes walk from the train station. Within a modern luxury block, the apartments overlook a beautiful courtyard - a luxury oasis, just off the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile. Secure underground parking behind a roller door, off the street. Wi-fi included. Our prices are per apartment, not per person. Each apartment will accommodate 4 in luxury, or up to 5 plus a baby in comfort. Our best rates are for stays of one week or more. We will also be delighted to help you plan your stay in Edinburgh, if you wish; we're good at welcoming and friendly, personal service. Our ground floor apartment is disabled friendly. Welcome to Edinburgh!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

We had a great stay in this lovely warm apartment. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable, right on the Royal mile, and has parking. Who could ask for more? Everything we needed for a week's stay was provided, and Liz was kind enough to courier down to us my Husband's wallet,

Enjoyed our stay at Atholl Brae. Very well located very close to the Royal Mile. Bottle of wine & shortbread left for us was a nice touch. Nice homely atmosphere and well equiped with everything we needed.

We have been in Edinburgh each of the last two years and have stayed here both times (we are booked again in 2019!). The apartment is ideally located, just down a side street from the Royal Mile, below the Old Tolbooth. It is very clean and spacious and Liz, the owner, has put

Thank you Richard, for your kind review. We have enjoyed an exceptionally warm summer, so are providing earplugs now, so that our guests are less disturbed by the noise in the mornings. I believe that 6 am is too early, legally, for construction noise to begin, but will now take this up with the construction company and progress this further, if necessary. (I think it's 8am). We look forward to welcoming you back next year! Liz, Manager

This flat was a good size and in a really good location, just off the Royal Mile. Much better than a hotel room given the comparable price. Liz was a fantastic host and made everything easy, highly recommended. We were travelling with a baby and found the flat very suitable for
