The flat has a very good view to the Edinburgh Castle and in walking distance to all of the main attractions. It is also close to supermarkets, restaurants/pubs, shops and banks. The decoration of the flat is lovely with all the artwork and candles. Will is a very nice host. He sent me a detailed introduction to the flat. Our check-in was very late because of delayed luggage, but Will replied my messages promptly. It will be great to stay in this flat again when I visit Edinburgh the next time.

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.
