The local area
Located on Edinburgh’s eastern shore, the ancient port of Leith is only a 10-minute bus journey from the city centre. In recent years, Leith has become one Edinburgh’s most vibrant areas, but has retained its traditional character as a working port. Like many waterfront developments, Leith has become a desirable place to live, and the influx of young people has created a trendy shopping and nightlife scene. There are dozens of cafes, pubs and restaurants within a few minutes' walk of the apartment. Ocean Terminal shopping centre, a 10-minute walk away, is home to many fashionable shops and eating places and has a multiscreen cinema, Vue. Moored alongside Ocean Terminal is the Royal Yacht Brittania. Leith is renowned for its fish and seafood restaurants and also has a tantalizing choice of Italian, French, Scottish, Indian, Chinese, and Turkish restaurants, as well as three Michelin-starred establishments (The Kitchin, The Plumed Horse and Martin Wishart, all of which are just a few minutes' walk from the apartment). You can walk to Edinburgh city centre in about 25 minutes or just hop on one of the buses that stop close to the apartment (buses run 24 hours a day). Leith is ideal for a night out after a busy day sight-seeing in Edinburgh.
The apartment is about a 10-minute bus ride from the tram stop "York Place" (which runs directly from/to Edinburgh Airport) and from the main railway station: Edinburgh Waverley Station. Taxis can be hailed throughout the city centre. We will send you detailed directions before your arrival.
For those arriving by car, there is parking available for one car (on request).
Edinburgh has an efficient public transport system run by Transport for Edinburgh. Buses and trams run throughout the city from early morning till midnight, after which there is a reduced night service. Transport for Edinburgh's information office is on Waverley Bridge.
