This is the second time we have stayed at The Edinbothy and we hope it won't be the last. It is a bright and cheery, ground floor flat with easy access through its own front door. The beds with their crisp white cotton sheets and excellent pillows are invitingly relaxing and having two bathrooms - one with a shower and...

We really enjoyed our stay from the minute we were welcomed by Kathy. The only reason we haven’t given an excellent rating was the lack of a shower in main bathroom. It would have been easier to get ready in the mornings if all four adults weren’t using the one shower in the en suite.

Kathy our host is super caring and sweet, great on informing and checking in before our arrival. She did all she could to ensure we have all we needed for our stay even set up extra bed in the bedroom for us at last minute. Greatly appreciate that! Her house is cozy and tidy, everything is maintained at good condition...

About the neighbourhood
The Edinbothy is within a modern, well-maintained residential development in Greenbank. It is a peaceful residential area with a direct bus in to the city centre.
The popular area of Morningside is 10 mins walk away offering a host of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and supermarkets including MandS Simply Food and Waitrose. Morningside is also home to numerous independent shops proudly offering a wide range of products from the cheesemonger to the home-brew store and local arts and crafts!
There are several golf courses very close to the flat, lots of walks through parks, forests and up local hills. The nearby Pentlands offer further exploration and a Snowsports Centre, offering dry slope skiing year-round.
The beautiful coastal villages and beaches of East Lothian, countryside of Fife...
Getting around
The Number 23 bus has a fabulous route running South to North Edinburgh taking you past The National Museum, The Royal Mile, George Street & Princes Street (for retail therapy) & on to the Botanical Gardens. Best thing is that the closest stop is 50yards from The Edinbothy's front door! You don't need a car to experience all Edinburgh city centre has to offer but if you do have a vehicle to explore further afield there is no shortage of free parking outside the front door!
