Bellevue is on the northern edge of the New Town, between Broughton, Canonmills and Stockbridge, and is only a few minutes’ walk from Princes Street and George Street, with their museums, galleries, shops and eating and drinking places. In the immediate neighbourhood, there is an array of small independent shops and bars, cafés and restaurants. The apartment is well placed for the main galleries and museums and is a 10-minute walk from the airport tram terminus. It’s a short walk to the Royal Mile and the Castle via the New Town and North Bridge and the Mound. Beyond the shops and eating and drinking places of Canonmills lies the Royal Botanic Garden.

The New Town was laid out in the early eighteenth century and encompasses the geometric streets between Great King Street to the north and Princes Street to the south and Broughton Street to the east and Charlotte Square to the west; it is a complete contrast to the medieval irregularity of the Old Town. The New Town is mainly residential but there are lots of independent shops, galleries, bars and restaurants to discover, especially around Broughton Street, Dundas Street and Thistle Street.
 
On Queen Street, at the top of Broughton Street, the National Portrait Gallery tells the story of Scotland and her people through a wealth of imagery including portraits of famous historical figures through to more recent pioneers in science, sport and the arts. The Scottish National Gallery on Princes Street holds the national collection of fine art from the early Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century. The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is a short bus ride away and houses the outstanding national collection of modern and contemporary art. You can also walk to the Gallery of Modern Art via the Water of Leith walkway. The Water of Leith is Edinburgh’s hidden natural asset. Flowing for 24 miles from its source in the Pentland Hills, the river winds its way through the heart of the city to its outflow in Leith. The river can be explored on foot or bike along the Water of Leith Walkway. At the top of Rodney Street on Mansfield Place, Mansfield Traquair Centre, a former church, earns its nickname of Edinburgh's Sistine Chapel from its murals by Phoebe Anna Traquair.

Edinburgh's East Village is the area centred on Broughton Street, one of the city’s most characterful streets, which is a continuation of Rodney Street.  Broughton Street is home to lots of pubs, from the traditional Barony Bar (which hosts regular music nights), Mather’s and the Cask and Barrel, to more trendy options like Treacle and The Street. There is a great selection of independent shops, including Moleta Munro, Life Story, Concrete Wardrobe and Curiouser and Curiouser for design; Coco for handmade chocolate; Joey-D for clothes. If you want to eat out you can chose from cafés like the Broughton Deli and restaurants like L’Escargot Bleu and the Olive Branch. If you want to do your own cooking, Broughton Street has some of the city’s best specialist food shops, including Real Foods (whole food and health shop), Something Fishy (fishmonger), and Crombie’s (butcher).

Turn left at the top of Broughton Street and you’re on colourful Leith Walk, the long avenue that links Edinburgh and the port of Leith: foodie delicatessens rub shoulders with greasy-spoon cafés and you can go from Italy to China in the space of a few blocks. Leith Walk is the umbrella name for a series of differently named streets and terraces. On Elm Row at the top of Leith Walk is Valvona & Crolla, one of Britain's top Italian foodshops. The shopfront boasts 'Founded in 1934, Origins in 1860s', and those years of tradition are evident the minute you step inside: hams hang from the ceiling, floor-to-ceiling shelves strain with Mediterranean delicacies and you can often hear Italian being spoken. The shop is still owned and run by descendants of the Crollas and Valvonas who set it up in the 1930s. The shop also has a café, where you can sample the cuisine of Mary Contini, one of Britain's premiere food writers and chefs. The shop plays a role in the Edinburgh Festival each August, when it becomes a venue for Italian music and drama. The Italian theme continues on Albert Street at the Sicilian Pastry Shop, and further down the Walk are a couple of Chinese supermarkets. The Shore, Leith's waterfront area, once decaying, is now enjoying a renaissance. Many of the old industrial buildings have been converted in to apartments and offices to house a new generation of residents and businesses. There are lots of great places to eat and drink, which come in to their own in the summer, when they spill out in to the streets; you can even eat and drink al fresco.

The apartment is about a 10-minute walk from the tram stop "York Place" (which runs directly from/to Edinburgh Airport) and a 20-minute walk from the main railway station (Waverley Station). We will send you detailed directions before your arrival.

For those arriving by car, there is parking available for one car (on request). Most apartments in this city-centre location have no parking available.

Edinburgh has an efficient public transport system run by Transport for Edinburgh. Trams and buses run throughout the city from early morning till midnight, after which there is a reduced night service. Lothian Regional Transport's information office is on Waverley Bridge.

  • “Fantastic flat, well equipped and very comfortable, plus great location. Martin responded to queries quickly politely and efficiently. A great experience, will definitely recommend and will not hesitate to book again on next visit. Secure Parking was a bonus in Edinburgh. Walking distance the many attractions Edinburgh has to offer.”

  • “My two brothers-in-law and their family members come to Edinburgh every year for one of the 6 Nations rugby matches. This year it was Scotland v Wales. For convenience we rent an apartment and this one was an excellent choice ... There is a welcome file that is very informative. The apartment had everything we needed including TV, WiFi and stereo system. It was clean, warm, very comfortable and lived up to the website description. The only (very minor) downside is that the bedrooms face onto the main road [but with double glazing] but we all agreed that we would certainly stay again.”

  • “A fantastic, spacious apartment in a great location. We had a wonderful 4 night stay, super comfy and a real home from home! Your beautiful apartment was the perfect base for our half-term break in lovely Edinburgh. Thanks so much; your speedy and thorough communication made the whole experience seamless and so easy! We hope to be back sometime soon!”

  • “We stayed here to enable daughter and partner to catch up with friends with us as resident babysitters, so not normal tourists. The flat we found very comfortable and well appointed, with lots of space. 3 yr old grandson slept in top bunk quite happily and having 2 bathrooms was a bonus. It was located very conveniently for us to get to where we wanted. Car parking was a bonus to get a bit further afield.”

  • “First time in Edinburgh, it was just magical. The apartment was great, near all amenities (a Tesco just at your doorstep) and just minutes away from the city center. Great view on the city roofs from the living room. Private parking spot if you have a car. The flat was fully equipped: just everything you would need for cooking (lovely kitchen), bathing or relaxing. We would definitely rent it again! Our host was very kind and helpful. If you feel lazy and don't feel like cooking, just go downstairs to the pub "The Other Place": delicious and fresh food.”

We just couldn't have asked for more with this place: minutes to the grocery store and a short distance to the city centre. We will certainly be back again!”

  • “This place exceeded all possible expectations: spotlessly clean, well furnished with design features, the most well stocked kitchen you could ask for, comfy beds and a great shower, and new and fully functional appliances (washer/dryer/dishwasher/etc). It's also located in my favorite part of Edinburgh, on a street filled with quaint restaurants and cafes, a yoga studio, and just 10 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and airport tram... Couldn't have asked for a better stay!”
