Apartment city centre Edinburgh with terrace home swap

Our apartment is only a few minutes walk to Haymarket rail station and the
Airlink bus & tram stops. You’ll be only a short stroll to a choice of five
different types of restaurants ....Italian, French, Indian, Chinese and the
renowned, classy Bonham’s. At Palmerston Place you are within easy walking
distance of the Scottish National Art Gallery plus the Portrait and Modern Art
Galleries, the Usher Hall and the Lyceum Theatre and the famous Edinburgh Castle.
Princes Street with its Gardens are within a 5 minute (no hills to climb) stroll.
Our ground floor holiday home has a double bedroom of huge
proportions next door to the family bathroom. There’s a twin bed
suite over two levels, the upper level is for sleeping and the lower
level has a dressing room with a shower room en-suite. The living area is
open plan and our private terrace is just a couple of steps from the kitchen so
alfresco breakfasting is easy.

Everything you need for everyday living is available in the apartment including a cot and high chair. You can check it out at www.herald-developments.co.uk

This is our holiday apartment which we sometimes let out. It is situated in Edinburgh’s New Town close to St Mary’s Cathedral and it’s a short walk to Princes Street, the gardens and the castle.

The New Town of Edinburgh, unlike other old cities, was specifically
planned and constructed (it didn't just grow gradually out of need) during the mid 19th century and its blond sandstone Georgian architecture is admired by all who visit Edinburgh.

About the location

Edinburgh and the Lothians have something for everyone. Edinburgh city itself has countless interesting things to see and do but there's also the wider Lothians area with attractions such as the supersonic Concorde aeroplane at East Fortune in East Lothian or the Royal Yacht Brittania at Leith. There's Pandas to see at Edinburgh Zoo (pre book for the Pandas), Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Wax Museum or an eerie ghost tour round the cobbled streets and closes of the historic old town.

You can easily explore Edinburgh on foot or on the hop-on-hop-off tourist buses to see the medieval old town with its many historic buildings of interest, to the magnificent 150 year old New Town.

Edinburgh Castle overlooks the entire city giving magnificent views to the Firth of Forth and Fife beyond but before you go onto the castle esplanade to take in the views, a visit to the Camera Obscura near the entrance will not be a waste of time for young and old alike. There's all manner of festivals take place in Edinburgh, jazz to film and of course the International Edinburgh and Fringe Festival which lasts for the whole month of August each year. You can enjoy the nightlife with many bars, clubs and world-class restaurants or shop in a paradise of designer boutiques, famous department stores, antique and old book shops. You may like to wander round the botanic gardens, or simply stroll the streets of Edinburgh. Cast your eyes over the architecture and leafy spaces of the Georgian New town and you will truly understand why the blond sandstone buildings of the New Town are so admired by residents and visitors alike.
