Delighted with the apartment. About 20 minute walk to the castle. Tesco and Sainsburys near by as well as a few good restaurants. Lots of space for teenagers to spread themselves around. Absolutely recommend for families, great facilities and friendly staff.

The 3 bedroom apartment was great for what we needed. The location is excellent and within an easy walk to the main sites and taxis nearby. It was also fantastic that they are dog friendly. I would recommend Fountain courts apartments and would consider staying there again.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
