About Derek Gibb

Pillowstops is run my husband and wife team Catherine and Derek Gibb.

"As a family we have used self catering properties around the world for our own holidays and know how important it is to make sure that when you arrive you are not disappointed with your choice of holiday accommodation. The two main areas of disappointment that we have found are location and standard!

The apartments that we offer are situated in Edinburgh's no 1 historic tourist street being the Royal Mile and our apartments are maintained and cleaned to a very high standard exactly as we would want to find ourselves when going on holiday.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.

Why Derek Gibb chose Edinburgh

Location, Location, Location and a very nice property !

What makes this apartment unique

Easy access out onto the Royal Mile by way of private staircase with only 10 steps.
