Lovely flat! My mom, two sisters and I stayed here for a couple nights. The location of this flat and it's incredible view of Edinburgh castle really enriched our experience. Absolutely loved how close it was to all attractions and good restaurants/pubs/grocery shop (with the kitchen we were able to cook some meals ourselves). William was an excellent host. Check in and out was super simple and he is quick to respond to messages. Flat was clean and had all amenities that we required. I fully recommend staying here - good for all types of groups (couples, families etc).

The flat was even better than advertised, amazing view of the castle and great place to stay for a short visit through to Edinburgh. No problems getting into the flat and William was a great host. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay for a few nights in the city, walkable to all the main attractions and a great spot in a lovely historic building.

It's lovely to have a place of your own to stay in. There are plenty of stairs to keep you fit (not for the feinthearted). The flat had all I needed for a pleasant stay and is quiet and very centrally located

Hello! My name is Will, and I have been living in Edinburgh on and off for 10 years. I'm a Senior Mechanical Engineer and have been lucky enough to be involved with some large Engineering projects around the world.
I therefore travel alot and thought it might be a good idea to try airbnb and allow people access to my beautiful central Edinburgh flat. The flat itself is nearly 200 years old and is perfect for a weekend retreat or a base to explore.

Other than travelling and working I enjoy reading, photography, films and fishing. If I am not in the country I am lyou will be looked after by either one of my friends or my girlfriend.
