About Edinburgh City Centre

Planning a visit to Edinburgh? Wondering what there is to do in the city?

You’ll be surprised by the concentration of activities and entertainment within a compact area in the city centre. So it’s worth renting an Edinburgh city centre apartment so you can be in the heart of all the activity.

Edinburgh Old Town apartments


The Old Town of Edinburgh is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and visitors to Scotland adore this area. 


The buildings are traditional stone, some with the same original layout from the Reformation era, some tucked away on the winding alleyways which follow the original medieval layout of the city.  


Staying in this area throws you fully into the historic side of Edinburgh, with The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish Parliament, the Grassmarket, and the Cowgate all within easy reach. During the high season, these areas fill with street performers and are a central location for all Edinburgh Festival activities. 


This area also offers the opportunity to enjoy the more supernatural side of our city, from spooky ghost tours to Harry Potter sightseeing walking tours. 


Edinburgh Castle apartments


Edinburgh Castle has stood on the tip of the extinct volcano for hundreds of years, and dominates the city. 

Many of our properties have a view of the castle, which is an impressive view whilst you sip your morning coffee! 


There isn’t much that can top a castle view, and due to its prominence in the city, many properties with this view are located in both the New Town and the Old Town. 

Quartermile Apartments 

The Quartermile Apartments are a mix of new-build luxury flats and original building conversions constructed in the redevelopment of the former Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.


These quality properties hug the iconic Meadows, with views over the volcanic Arthur's Seat. 


The National Museum of Scotland is close by, as well as the Greyfriars Bobby Monument and the George IV Bridge, the Grassmarket, and the Cowgate.  



New Town apartments in Edinburgh


The New Town is also a UNESCO site, and most of the buildings are neo-classical and Georgian period architecture. 


The rooms often have high ceilings, with ceiling roses and cornices, and many original features. 


The location is perfect for reaching every area in the city. 


It’s a haven for shoppers, with Princes Street, George Street, and the neighbouring areas filled with boutiques, high street brands, and luxury clothing lines.


For those looking for world-class food, you’ll find this area is alive in the evening with bars and restaurants all serving international cuisine


For culture goers, the New Town has the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery of Scotland, the newly reformed Calton Hill and the Scott Monument, amongst others.  



As you’ll see, no matter which Edinburgh city centre apartment you choose, you’re guaranteed to enjoy the quality of the home from home, in one of the most beautiful locations in Scotland.
