Interaction with guests
We live close by and can be contacted before and during your stay. We usually use a key box, but we are more than happy to meet you and show you the apartment if you prefer. If we can't meet you in person we have a key box we can use, with very clear instructions & pictures to help guide you. We are both sociable and have lived in Edinburgh and Scotland for most of our lives so can offer you plenty tips on the best places to eat, drink and visit while enjoying your time in Edinburgh.

About the neighbourhood
The Grassmarket was once Edinburgh’s main marketplace, and now it’s one of the city’s most vibrant areas. There’s a large selection of cafés and bars and a great Saturday market selling a range of tasty street food and arts and crafts. Minutes away from Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, Victoria Street is just around the corner featuring some of Edinburgh’s most interesting independent shops and eateries. Waverley train station and Princes Street are also just a short walk away.
Getting around
The apartment is very central, so walking to all of Edinburgh's main attractions is easy. Buses are regular and take you anywhere in the City quickly. Taxis are easy to hail, there is a rank at the end of the street. From the airport a taxi will cost around £25. If you're driving there is metered parking close to the apartment (£3 per hr) or there are several car parks close by, the most reasonable is Waverley Station at £17 per 24hrs.
