About the Owner

Ancrum Craig in the Scottish Borders is our home since 1976 and we have run it as a B&B from the beginning! We bought a flat for our daughter to live in when she studied in Edinburgh. That was way back in 99. On graduation Erica moved to London we we decided to renovate the flat and rent it out for short term holiday lets.

This was successful and in 2006 we bought Pamela's flat next door.(SC2135)

We meet and greet all our guests, and do all the cleaning and maintenance. You can find full details of our accommodations on our website.

A fantastic place to stay in Stockbridge

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and tidy upon our arrival. The owner, Johan, was there to greet us and show us around the property. The facilities provided were exactly what we needed for our stay, and everything that we could have needed.

The apartment is ideally situated for exploring Edinburgh. Local shops, bars and eateries are only a minute walk away, along with bus stops for those wanting to use public transport (which is the best way to get around if walking distances are a bit too far). Edinburgh centre os a fifteen minute walk. We parked our car upon arrival and didn't use it again intil we departed for home!

All on all I would recommend a stay here to anyone.

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable flat in a great location. Just round the corner from the shops with everything you could need but in a quiet street. Lovely Sunday market with walks along the river, we loved Stockbridge. Hope to be back in the near future.

Peaceful environment

  • 5 of 5

Our first holiday in Scotland was amazing and successful because of this wonderful apartment. Its location was absolutely great next to old town and Princess street. All what needed was close, shops, post office, pharmacy, pubs and diners. Apartment was clean, cosy and suitable to use for two person. We liked that much. Thank you so much to Johan, who gave us great information and was such as wonderful host. We can recommend this warmly who wants to stay in Edinburgh. We can say, we will come back! Riina & Heini

Wonderful Edinburgh short break

  • 5 of 5

An ideal location for exploring Edinburgh - we felt part of the local Stockbridge community but were close enough to central Edinburgh to experience the tourist spots. The apartment was lovely, clean, spacious, well-equipped and Johan was really helpful and welcoming. Thank you so much for helping to make our Edinburgh experience so happy and memorable.

Christmas break

  • 5 of 5

the flat situated in Stockbridge is lovely. Near enough to walk into the city or a quick bus ride but Stockbridge itself has everything you need. The Baillie is a good pub with plenty of character, Hectors and The Stickbridge tap are a very short walk away. With Scotmid and local Sainsbury close by you don't have to worry about running out of anything!

The flat was clean and tidy , I cooked Christmas dinner for four with no problem at all. Loads of crockery and pots and pans and a very efficient cooker.

I would certainly recommend it, this was the second time we had visited and it won't be the last.

Self catering in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Nicely tucked away in Stockbridge which has so much to offer (bars/shops/restaurants) yet a very short bus ride (bus stop is literally steps from the property) from the centre of Edinburgh.

It was great to also have secure parking with the accommodation.

The flat was perfect for us (2 adults and a 4 year old) - with 2 bedrooms and enough living space for us to spread out when we were there.

The kitchen (although we only used it at breakfast time) was well equipped and all other things we could have needed were on hand (iron etc). Wi-fi was a nice extra too when trying to plan our next day's sightseeing.

We love Edinburgh and will stay here again as it has everything we need!

We bought this apartment when our daughter went to University in Edinburgh. She has meanwhile moved on and since than we use the apartment for holiday lets. It is in walking distance from the very centre but does not have the crowds, noise and the tartan tat from the Old Town. It is a safe area of the town, and has a village atmosphere. It is close to the large green open spaces of Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic gardens.
