North Castle Street offers guests the chance to experience city centre living at its very best, with the convenience of private gated parking for two cars. The apartment has been recently updated to a very high standard and is beautifully furnished throughout. It is bright and airy in the summer and super cosy in the winter. The windows from all rooms offer stunning views of Edinburgh and far beyond. Both the kitchen and sitting room offer impressive views of Edinburgh Castle to the south and right across to the Firth of Forth to the north. During festival season and on New Years Eve visitors can enjoy the amazing firework displays from the comfort of the sitting room. OooThe large bay window provides a front row seat! From the bedrooms, both the forth road and rail bridges can be seen on ...North Castle Street offers guests the chance to experience city centre living at its very best, with the convenience of private gated parking for two cars.

From the bedrooms, both the forth road and rail bridges can be seen on a clear day. Lying less than a minute's stroll from George Street in the heart of the New Town, the apartment enjoys an enviable location in one of Edinburgh's most desirable residential areas. George Street, Princes Street and St Andrew's Square provide excellent shopping facilities together with a superb choice of bars and restaurants, all within walking distance. This is a fantastic base for enjoying the history, culture and adventure of the city whilst providing easy access to the surrounding countryside and the nearby coastline. Whilst the apartment is large enough to comfortably accommodate 3 couples, it would be perfect for a family (the apartment has beds for 7, a sofa bed for an 8th person is available at an extra charge) or even a couple wanting a stylish and roomy base to explore the city.

About the neighbourhood
North Castle Street lies right in the heart of the New Town. The apartment is in walking distance of most of Edinburgh's main attractions. George Street is a one minute walk away with its fantastic bars, restaurants and stylish shops. You can also take a bus from here to most areas in Edinburgh. Take a trip down to Leith to see the Royal Yacht Britannia which is docked here. Trips on board are held daily. Edinburgh Castle can be seen clearly from the windows of the apartment and is about a 20 minute stroll through the fabulous old town and up the Royal Mile. However, with so much to see and do along the way, it may take much longer! The lovely Princes Street gardens set against the backdrop of the Castle are just a three minute walk away and offer a peaceful setting to relax and unwind...
