Brilliant location - a stone's throw from bars and restaurants of Broughton Street, tram stop, Waverley station, Portrait Gallery, Princes Street, George St, Festival and Fringe venues eg The Stand, Botanic Gardens yet on a quiet cycle route. Built post war - the Napoleonic.
This gorgeous one-bedroom flat is on the second floor, overlooking gardens and tennis courts, bathed in sunshine, still with original stone flagstones, wooden shutters, cornices, but with modern touches: wifi and TV.
Treat flat with respect - it is over 200 years old! Please leave clean and tidy as you found it. Respect neighbours and don't bang main door and no loud music or parties as a very residential neighbourhood.
I was born and brought up in Edinburgh - then lived in London and Hong Kong where I wrote about food. Since my return to Edinburgh over ten years ago, I made a television series called The Woman Who Ate Scotland - where I ate and cycled my way all round Scotland. I am still passionate about cycling - in fact the flat is on cycling route 75 and has bike storage. I love to cook and am a qualified nutritionist and author of cookbook Eat Well published by Hachette.
I run a food walking tour company in Edinburgh called Edinburgh Food Safari where I take guests on a whirlwind tour of 6 bars and restaurants covering a variety of Scottish cuisines from haggis to marshmallows with whisky and gin!
I really enjoy being an air bnb host and love recommending places for people to go and see and eat - and I look forward to making you welcome in my two-hundred year old home. :
