Welcome to the Mapmakers Townhouse, where fascinating Edinburgh history and imposing architecture meets modern luxury, space, light and attention to detail. Lovingly renovated by the owner who has “poured his heart in to it and has thought of every single detail to make our experience a fantastic one”. For history buffs, this townhouse’s credentials are second to none, for it once formed part of the impressive premises of the famous Bartholomew Mapmakers firm, situated in Duncan Street from 1911 – 1995. Skilled craftsmen and women worked within the light filled and spacious building to produce world famous maps, maintaining Bartholomew’s reputation as one of Scotland's most influential map making firms. This property has FREE parking which is rare bonus within Edinburgh....Welcome to the Mapmakers Townhouse, where fascinating Edinburgh history and imposing architecture meets modern luxury, space, light and attention to detail.

The accommodation is in a brilliant location, easy walking distance to the city centre, but far enough away to enjoy less hustle and bustle of the centre. Walking took us no more than 20 minutes to walk to Princess Street. Plenty of places to eat...More

How to get there
However you choose to arrive please do make sure that you have spoken to the 'property manager' to arrange a time to meet you at the property on arrival as there is no reception area or onsite staff to assist you if you arrive without notice. - Executive Car transfer Wanting to arrive in style and relax after your fight. The Edinburgh Address can organise a transfer in a luxury Mercedes for up to 8 guests for £57.00. - Airport Black Taxi This option is better if you are travelling in a small group as a taxi from the airport to the west end of Princes Street is about £18 to £20 dependant on the time of day and traffic. So its not much more just to get a taxi straight to the property.
