Atholl Brae was just perfect! Great apartment, great size, well equipped and the location could not have been better. I would definitely recommend Atholl Brae when you visit Edinburgh. A trip up to Arthur's Seat is a must when you're in Edinburgh. The scenery is astonishing!

The apartment was comfortable and perfect for us as a family. A good starting point for sightseeing. The Royal Mile is just around the corner and the new town is easy to reach on foot within 15 minutes.

Athol Brae is a delightful apartment, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Top-notch furnishings and fittings and a quiet night’s sleep every night for us country bumpkins, despite being just a few yards off the Royal Mile. Perfect location for walking to Fringe/Festival events, and we’ll definitely return. Liz provided lots of information in advance and plenty at the apartment too... More

Four of us stayed here (1st floor apartment) for a week and loved it. We chose it for the location, which was ideal, and price, which was excellent. We did not expect it to be so spacious, spotless, modern, well-equipped and well-laid-out. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if returning to Edinburgh. Thanks, Liz!

After much research on TripAdvisor, we were drawn to Atholl Brae by several factors. The central location, the presence of secure parking on site, and the great reviews all pointed to a high quality, good value apartment. Boy, were we right to go for it.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
