Stockbridge is one of the most charming and desirable areas of Edinburgh, with enough artisan shops, cafes and restaurants to keep you occupied for hours. It’s like being in a small village in the middle of the city. And there’s a fantastic Waitrose on your doorstep!

Leith is a bustling, vibrant area of the city. You only need to walk five minutes from the apartment to reach the distinctive area of The Shore, where you’ll find some of the best bars, bistros and pubs in Edinburgh. This area is also home to two of Scotland’s most famous Michelin-starred restaurants - Martin Wishart and The Kitchin.

The Royal Yacht Britannia and the Ocean Terminal shopping centre are also in the heart of Leith and are popular tourist destinations.

From either location, you are only five to ten minutes away from the very heart of the city. Queen Street, George Street and Princes Street are all there to explore, with shops ranging from Karen Millen, Jenners, Jo Malone and Jack Wills.

After a day’s shopping, enjoy a cocktail in Harvey Nichols before eating at one of Edinburgh’s many restaurants – from intimate bistros to Michelin starred restaurants - it’s all there to enjoy.
