Key features

We would like to present to you the Penthouse @ The Royal Mile; a stylish hideaway on the Royal Mile. As you enter this fantastic property the tranquil environment will engulf you. The space and light welcomes you as you prepare to explore this spectacular - every room is a wonder, with first rate styling and attention to detail.

Having benefitted from a full refurbishment, the apartment contains a spacious open plan living/dining area, with snug chairs and sofas you can sink into after a day of seeing the sites. There are 3 bedrooms - the master bedroom contains a King bed and en-suite, bedroom one has a double bed and bedroom two can either have a King or two singles due to zip-lock beds.

There is an alluring balcony with a table for 2 where you can enjoy breakfast in the morning or relax with an evening drink while taking in the remarkable Edinburgh views. The kitchen is fully equipped if you fancy a quiet night in, and is superb for cooking so you can take it easy for the night and enjoy use of the superb facilities (or use our chef service so you can have the ultimate pampered experience!).

This property benefits from a lift.

Sleeping arrangements One double bedroom, one King Bedroom and one Ziplink bedroom which can be twins or a king.

This part of the High Street dates back as far as the 12th century although the buildings between the Tron Kirk and Parliament Square were destroyed in a great fire in 1824 and the present facades re-built in 1825.

    Local area 126 High Street is situated on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh’s oldest thoroughfare stretching from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. The property is located approximately half way between the castle and the palace. No 126 spans Stevenlaw’s Close named after Steven Law, a supporter of Mary Queen of Scots during the Scottish Civil War of 1571-1573. Bonnie Prince Charlie also worshipped at the Roman Catholic Chapel here.

    Other famous residents of Stevenlaw’s Close include:- James Wilson (aka “daft Jamie”), a victim of the famous West Port murderers Burke and Hare who killed to supply cadavers to Dr Robert Knox for dissection in his anatomical lectures. James was a well known figure in the town and his murder and recognition led to the eventual downfall of Burke and Hare. Also, Allan Masterton, the composer of the music for many of Robert Burn’s songs.

    There is a wealth of Edinburgh street life right on the doorstep. The street outside is closed to traffic and one can expect to see pipers, jugglers, musicians and street actors throughout the year. Edinburgh Fringe headquarters is right downstairs so festival visitors can be in a prime position in the queue for booking shows and tickets. Princes Street and the majority of Edinburgh’s theatres and venues are a maximum 10 minute walk away.

    There are a number of excellent Scottish restaurants within a short walk from the apartment, including:The Tower, Angels with Bagpipes, Ondines, Wedgwood. Some of Edinburgh’s Michelin starred restaurants are only a short taxi ride away, including: Restaurant Martin Wishart, The Plumed Horse and The Kitchin.

    Waverley station is a five minute walk away although the route is uphill and a taxi might be preferable with luggage. The airport is about half an hour away by bus or taxi. The airport bus which stops at Waverley costs approximately £5. A taxi from the airport costs approximately £25.

    Meet and greet was well organised and made us feel welcome.


    The property was spacious and clean and had everything we needed. Limited views of Royal Mile from flat but views over Edinburgh rooftops to Arthur's Seat and the River Forth. Entrance to building not inspiring and no light elevator.

    Extremely efficient and flexible supporting us when we changed our arrival time. When we did arrive the property manager was pleasant and thorough showing us around the apartment when we arrived.


    The apartment was superb, furnishings were excellent complementing the character of the property. The location couldn't have been better, mid way along the Royal Mile, close to everything you could want to do or visit in Edinburgh.
