Lovely two bedroom apartment – quiet leafy area, close to Edinburgh universities

Large south-facing windows, lots of light. Lovely views over shared landscaped garden, towards Blackford Hill, Edinburgh Observatory and Arthur’s Seat, excellent for walking/running.

Local amenities include the Edinburgh Farmers’ Market which takes place under the spectacular backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, selling a huge variety of fresh local produce, meat and seafood from local farms.
