Guest are expected to make themselves at home. One important thing is not to make a noise on the common stair if coming home late at night. Once in the flat it is hard to disturb anyone as the stone walls are so thick. It is appreciated if all rubbish is removed and fridge cleared of food at end of stay. Heating should be turned off and door locked and last set of keys posted back through letterbox please. It is a no smoking flat.
I am interested in the arts, cinema and theatre also hillwalking, vegetable-growing, history. I have lived in the Edinburgh area since the 70s and been involved in the Arts and youth and community work and arranging accommodation for Festival-goers.
