My lovely apartment is on the fabulous Grassmarket, below Edinburgh Castle, and with The Elephant House (Harry Potter), galleries and museums right on the doorstep. It's the liveliest place to be with street theatre and buzzing cafe life as you walk out the door. But with triple glazing, and a peaceful, secluded courtyard garden with table and chairs, you will also have a haven of peace in the middle of this festival city. Secure entry. Ground floor.
