About the location
Morningside is an attractive leafy neighbourhood and is one of the most affluent areas in Edinburgh. Heading south from the west end of Princes Street up Lothian Road and through Tollcross you’ll come to Bruntsfield with Morningside just beyond. It is a friendly place with plenty of cafes, pubs, restaurants and quirky shops.
It is only a short 20 min bus ride into the centre of Edinburgh and our home is on the main bus route, with buses every few minutes. You really wouldn't need a car to go into town, however we welcome car exchanges which is very useful if you were wanting to explore areas outside of Edinburgh such as North Berwick, Stirling, St Andrews, Perth and Glasgow.
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, where centuries of history meet a vibrant, lively city in an unforgettable setting. Discover stunning scenery, striking architecture and fine food.
Edinburgh hosts the largest arts festival in the world, with literally thousands of shows to chose from every August.
It also hosts the famous Winter Wonderland each year in from early December to mid-January, with a fantastic German Market, fairground and other attractions.
