Craigwell Cottage

Self Catering

16 Nether Craigwell, Calton Road, Edinburgh, City Of Edinburgh, EH8 8DR

    Self catering cottage with parking and wi-fi access in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town close to Royal Mile and Palace of Holyroodhouse. Easy access from Waverley Station and close to bus routes from Edinburgh Airport. Short breaks.

    Self catering cottage with shared garden and parking space in private courtyard. Fantastic location close to the Royal Mile and Palace of Holyroodhouse - ideal place to stay if you're visiting the Scottish Parliament, or researching your ancestors at the National Register for Scotland. On direct bus route from Edinburgh Airport (Lothian Bus No 35 - only £1.40 fare!), and within easy walking distance of Waverley Station.

    Shared garden (see photograph) has lovely views over the rooftops of the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Scottish Parliament, and towards Holyrood Park and Salisbury Crags. The garden also provides a (very steep) shortcut up to Regent Road, which leads to Waterloo Place and Princes Street.
