Tolbooth Royal Mile Apartment

Self Catering

4/1 Old Tolbooth Wynd, Edinburgh, City Of Edinburgh, EH8 8EQ

    The Old Tolbooth Wynd dates back to 1591 and is instantly recognisable by its turreted steeple and clock. The Wynd (lane) itself leads off one of the most famous streets in the world - the Royal Mile.

    What other mile long street can boast a 10th century castle sitting high on its ancient volcanic rock at one end and a Royal Palace - official residence to Her Majesty the Queen - at the other.
    Eating out is easy - there is an abundance of restaurants of all nationalities on your doorstep and within an easy 5 - 10 minute walk. If it's shopping you are after, Princes Street, George Street and St. Andrew Square are all an easy walk and cover the full range of day-to-day shopping right up to designer stores such as Harvey Nicholls.
    The Airport shuttle coach service & main line train station are within a 5 - 10 minute walk.

    In between there is a multitude of fascinating shops, museums and galleries of all shapes and sizes. Why not try out your Scottish credentials in one of several renowned kilt shops - or just relax and spoil yourself with afternoon tea in Clarinda's Tea Room.
    The apartment itself is considerably younger than the Wynd - a modern oasis within the Old Town - and is finished to a very high standard, including:

    - modern lounge with adjoining dining area

    - fully equipped modern kitchen including dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, gas hob, fan oven and microwave

    - one double bedroom with ample storage space

    - beautifully finished tiled bathroom with shower

    Other facilities include:

    - Sofa bed for additional sleeping
    - Gas central heating
    - Double glazing

    - Free WiFi internet access
    - TV, DVD & CD player + supply of DVDs
    - Selection of books, maps & tour guides
    - Hairdryer
    - Ironing board + iron

    Whether you arrive in Edinburgh by plane, train or car we will meet you at the apartment to give you a warm welcome with our traditional Welcome Basket, providing initial essentials such as tea, coffee, milk, cereals, bread and also some other treats.
