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, VueMoored alongside Ocean Terminal is the Royal Yacht BrittaniaLeith 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 KitchinThe 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.

  • “A great apartment in a fantastic location, a short bus ride away from the hustle and bustle of central Edinburgh. We used the riverside path to walk into Edinburgh on a couple of occasions and it only took about thirty minutes. The apartment was very comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing break, and there were lots of decent eateries within a short walk. Would recommend.”

  • “Ottimo appartamento per posizione e tranquillità. Bella vista. Comodo per 4 persone, ognuno riesce ad avere i suoi spazi. Vicino a tanti ristoranti, supermercati, bar e al mare. 15-20 min di bus per arrivare in centro, fermata bus sotto l'appartamento. Consigliato.”

  • “The place was exactly what we were after and was a great base from which to enjoy the Hogmanay celebrations. A very nice apartment in the quieter area of The Shore which has a few very nice restaurants and bars but is just a 30m in walk or short drive into the busy city centre. A great base for enjoying all aspects of Edinburgh.”
