Eclectic, bohemian, creative, artistic flat in a traditional late a Georgian, early Victorian Edinburgh flat with high ceilings.

The space
My flat is original and unique, everybody who comes in loves looking at all the art and interesting bits I’ve collected over the years. A relaxed home. The bathroom is a small shared space, with bath & shower. Leith is a fabulous area, all the best restaurants are walking distance from the flat and so is the Royal Yacht Britannia. Edinburgh city centre is a short bus ride or a 30 min walk. Lovely park opposite for morning run or walk, also a drop in yoga centre round the corner if you fancy an early class or evening meditation. Breakfast will be simple, breakfast bar if wanted, soy & gluten free, tea or coffee, milk alternative including herbal options. NO cooking or laundry facilities.

Guest access
Access to your room, welcome to use kitchen for tea and coffee, breakfast bar will be provided each day, no cooking please. Bathroom is shared family bathroom.

NO cooking or laundry facilities.

Other things to note
I have a very quiet and a shy cat who keeps itself to itself. I also have a botanical based, cruelty free, green products company, so all products are provided over your stay from skincare to shampoo and washes etc, plus I even have a makeup case if you wish to play.

Royal Yacht Britannia is a short walk from flat, as is The Shore in Leith, which is where you will find many of Edinburgh’s top restaurants and funky cafes.
Bus stop outside flat will take you into centre of Edinburgh in 10/15 mins, busses every 10 mins day and night.
Lovely park in front of flat is actually the HOME OF GOLF and was the worlds first golf course, though no longer played, St Andrews is the worlds oldest played course, Leith Links, was the first and there is a plaque to commemorate this. It’s also the site of Cromwell’s Army, and some of the hill mounds are still visible.
If you love the beach, a 30 min walk along the coast will take you to Portabello, a vibrant beach town, with lots of fun cafes on the beach front.
Leith itself is packed with history, being the place where Mary Queen of Scots landed when she first came back to Scotland from France, plus, Cromwell’s army had barracks here, and many Scots and Irish left for the new lands of America, Australia, Canada and New Zealand from Leith Docks. On top of this there is a vibrant modern history, Irving Welsh and The Proclaimers are both from Leith.
