Practical, convenient, great little bolthole

  • 5 of 5

I was in Edinburgh for an event and this was perfect. Great location, spotlessly clean, convenient in terms of equipment and facilities and access to transport (though you can walk most places anyway).

Comfy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The little flat in Sciences House Place was a perfect base to explore the city. Regular buses run from just around the corner but we walked into town every day to get the best feel of everyday Edinburgh and Leith. We would happily return on the next visit to the capital.

Sehr schöne gepflegte Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren rundum zufrieden, sehr gute Ausstattung, man musste nicht jede Kleinigkeit einkaufen, ruhige Lage, einziger Minikritikpunkt ist die winzige Toilette, in der jede Beinfreiheit fehlte und man sich nicht drehen konnte. Aber für eine Woche ist das mal akzeptabel

Location

This apartment is an ideal base from which to explore the city. The apartment is close to two major bus routes and you can hop on a bus into town, which in 10 or 15 minutes will have you in the heart of the city. We recommend that you buy day tickets (buy one on your first bus of the day) so that you can take as many buses as you like over the course of the day. Or if you want to experience more of the city, you can easily walk to town through the University via Causewayside and Buccleuch Street, or via the Meadows, an area of open parkland. The Meadows were originally under water: the Burgh Loch, which was drained in 1740, was one of Edinburgh’s main water supplies. The area is now one of the city’s biggest green spaces, ideal for jogging, walking and other sports. There are public tennis courts, a children’s playpark and Bruntsfield Links Golf Course, one of the oldest courses in the world, where you can have a round of pitch-and-putt.

Sciennes (pronounced sheens) gets its name from Sciennes Hill House (built in 1741, but long since incorporated into a tenement building), which was the home of Robert Biggar, who was ruined financially by investing in the Darien Scheme. Nearby Causewayside was historically the main road south form Edinburgh, and the name derives from the old Scots word causey, meaning a paved road. The street has many eating and drinking places, along with interesting independent specialist shops, including a number of antique shops. The arts centre Summerhall is just up the road and in the other direction is a satellite of the National Library of Scotland. The Royal Hospital for Sick Children is just along the road, and the adjoining area of Marchmont has a lots of independent shops and eating and drinking places. Marchmont is the home turf of Detective Inspector John Rebus, Ian Rankin's fictional detective. The former James Gillespie's High School for Girls on Warrender Park Crescent was the alma mater of Muriel Spark, and inspired the lead character (and school) in her book, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.
