If you can, we recommend downloading the Lothian Bus app which gives allows you to buy tickets direct from your phone and can help you plan your route around the city. Edinburgh is also a great place to explore on foot. You can easily walk into town through the University of Edinburgh and The Meadows which is an area of open park right beside Gladstone Apartment. The Meadows originally was a loch supplying Edinburgh with water until it was drained in 1740. The area is now ideal for walks or jogging no matter what the time of year, but is lovely for enjoying a picnic during the warm summer months. It's great for families too with a children's playpark. The tennis courts can also be hired from Edinburgh Leisure.
Marchmont still retains that community neighbourhood feel thanks to the array of local shops, cafes and restaurants so an ideal place to eat out whether for breakfast, a snack, or an evening meal. The area also a Co-Op and Sainsbury's Local store for stocking up on the essentials whilst staying at Gladstone Apartment. Marchmont is also famous as being the home of DI Rebus from the fictional Ian Rankin novels.
