The Flat

This bright welcoming top floor flat is in a converted whisky bond on the edge of Leith Links. It is the only commercial building amidst the substantial town houses of the prosperous merchants of Leith, the port for the city of Edinburgh. Leith Links is a open green space where the game of golf was invented and first played.

The sitting room is both cosy and comfortable with two settees, TV with DVD player and Freeview. There is internet access and a landline is provided for incoming calls. French windows open onto a miniature roof terrace with views down the River Forth, and across to Fife.

The modern kitchen has an electric hob, oven, fridge, microwave and washing machine as well as all the small appliances and pots and pans which you would expect. The kitchen has crockery and cutlery for four as well as a table which folds out to seat four (just) and four folding chairs. Although the flat is bijou and only sleeps two, there is room for entertaining family or friends if you wish.

The charmingly decorated bedroom has a kingsized bed and a built-in wardrobe. The view looks west over the rooftops of north Edinburgh.

All the ceilings slope which gives the flat an "attic" feeling and make it easy to heat unlike the typical Edinburgh tennement! The beechwood floors throughout the flat are softened by rugs to give a warm and homely atmosphere.

The bathroom is modern and well appointed. It has a shower over the bath and ceramic tiles on the floor.

Heating, hot water and cooking are all electric, controlled by a pay as you go meter. For your convenience there will be £10 credit on the meter when you arrive. Pure cotton bed linen and towels are also provided


Leith is a vibrant area of Edinburgh, mixing trade and commerce with leisure and entertainment thanks to renovation and new building in recent years. There are many pubs and restaurants on the waterfront offering fresh seafood cooked in true Scottish style.


Nearby attractions include The Royal Yacht Britannia which served the Queen for 44 years. It is berthed at Ocean Drive about a mile away. Ocean Terminal Cinema Multiplex is also about 1 mile away.
