Stunning 18th Century Luxury Tower Apartment a stones throw from the Castle. Overlooking the Royal Mile with stunning St Giles Cathedral, and located in a historic square facing the breathtaking Writers Museum built in 1622. Surrounded by incredible architecture, with a wide variety of restaurants and boutiques on the doorstep, Royal Mile Tower is an exceptional location to explore the heart of the city.

The space
A stunning, luxury first floor 18th century apartment overlooking the Royal Mile, St Giles Cathedral and less than 50m from the Castle esplanade. Ladystairs Tower Apartment offers breathtaking views of historic architecture dating back to the 16th century. Tucked away up a ancient close where Robert Burns once lived and Sir Walter Scott was inspired to write his novel 'The Mirror.' An inspiring, breathtaking, comfortable base in the heart of old Edinburgh.

Guest access
Guests have access to luxury! Egyptian cotton sheets, silk bedthrows, velvet sumptious cushions, Fired Earth bathroom with mother of pearl tiles, Denby glasses and crockery, free Wifi, free netflix, state of the art sound sytem and TV - not forgetting the luxury views!!!

Other things to note
There are many tours go from right outside - ghosts tours of old Edinburgh, under the city tours - did you know Edinburgh is built on top of another old city, parts of which you can still explore deep underground? City Tour buses leave from outside and The Writers Tour leaves from Ladystairs Close showcasing the history and inspiration of Edinburgh's many famous writers including JK Rowling, Ian Banks, Irvine Welsh, Robert Burns to name but a few! I use BnB Buddy services, who offer a 24 hour response/help.

I am currently only excepting 1 night bookings for certain times of the year.

This property is pet-friendly. Please note, there will be an additional fee. Please let us know in advance and our team will provide you more information.

Born and bred in Edinburgh I am a Fashion Stylist, Personal Shopper, Wife and Mum. I love to travel in search of new adventures, to meet new people, to browse markets hunting for treasure, to eat tasty food and drink fine wine, to read in hammocks, to float in the sea (preferably not the Scottish sea!) to ramble round old streets, and to blow in the wind (handy in Edinburgh!)
