Edinburgh Castle, The Old Town and The Scottish Parliament from Whinny Hill

Edinburgh Castle, The Old Town and The Scottish Parliament from Whinny Hill

This apartment is situated on Tytler Gardens, a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of Holyrood Park. Tytler Gardens is a short walk across the park from the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the historic Old Town. There are also excellent bus connections from nearby London Road. The Royal Mile, the backbone of medieval Edinburgh, connects Edinburgh Castle at one end with the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Parliament at the other. Edinburgh's main visitor attractions are a short walk away and the neighbourhood is full of attractive independent shops and restaurants, bars and cafés to suit all budgets, from cheap and cheerful pizzerias to fine dining establishments. The Hub (the official centre for the Edinburgh International Festival) and the Festival Fringe office are on the Royal Mile. You are also ideally placed to enjoy the Christmas and Hogmanay/New Year festivities.

The area around the Palace of Holyroodhouse developed as the court quarter and many fine residences for aristocratic families were built there. One of these, Queensberry House, now forms part of the Scottish Parliament buildingQueensberry House was bought in 1686 by the father of the 2nd Duke of Queensberry, whose eldest son, the mad Lord James Douglas, escaped from confinement one night in 1701 and murdered a kitchen-boy – the very night that his father was signing the Act of Union that dissolved the Scots Parliament and put Scotland under English rule. You can find out more about Edinburgh's grisly past on the guided tours that leave from the Royal Mile. See for example Mercat ToursWitchery Tours and The Real Mary King's Close.

If the pretty shared garden is not enough for you, the extensive and rugged open space of Holyrood Park and Arthur's Seat, just a few minutes' walk away, is ideal for an inner city picnic or ramble.

Getting there

The apartment is about a 20-25-minute walk or a 10-minute taxi journey from the tram stop "York Place" (which runs directly from/to Edinburgh Airport) and a 20-minute walk 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 private parking at Tytler Gardens for residents, and there is free on-street parking on surrounding streets. This apartment is close to the city centre. (Most of our other city centre / Old Town properties are in areas where you have to pay for parking either in an NCP car park or by using an on-street parking meter.)

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.

  • “Great location for exploring Edinburgh: This small and easily maintained ground floor apartment is an ideal location for exploring the city on foot. It provides a great location, since it is close to Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile. From this property we walked across a large section of the city. it is also easily placed for a visit to Leith and Portobello by car. We visited in November, and were warm and comfortable in the apartment throughout our time there. The owner welcomed us on our arrival and we were pleased with the ease of arranging our visit. Thoroughly recommend to single or couples looking to explore this culturally vibrant city.”

  • “Clean, comfortable and excellent location: The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Virtually everything you need for a stay is included in the apartment complete with guide books and binoculars! Extremely quiet and friendly neighbours and yet only a few minutes walk from Holyrood House and the Royal Mile. Lynn and Paul are very welcoming and thoughtful hosts with a welcome tray of teas, coffees and biscuits etc. Paul met us with the keys and nothing was too much trouble. I honestly would not stay anywhere else for a break in Edinburgh - absolutely first class!”
