Other things to note

The apartment is a quiet location with good privacy and either parking on site or on the adjacent street (no charge currently). Close by is the Murrayfield Rugby Ground and an Ice Rink. Murrayfield golf course is a splendid hillside course with fantastic views and it is just two minutes walking.

THis is a leafy area with large grand houses and some fabulous and relaxing walkways. For easy going the water of leith can be followed along its banks right through the city to Leith. Within ten minutes on can be into and through the woods of Corstorphine Hill and there find the most awesome panoramic views across the firth of forth, the castle and arthurs seat and the stark Pentland Hills. The latter can be accessed in ten minutes by car.

You are just 1.5 miles from Princes Strret and all its shops Close by is a traditional butcher, Within five minutes you can be at a mall with Sainsburys, Marks and Spencer, Boots and other stores, while two miles away at Corstorphine there is another mall with a giant Tesco Extra and many more retail outlets.

Motoring in the city can be a challenge. So the best advice is take the bus.
A one way bus journey is £1.50 and a day card for use at will is £4.00. One can buy a Ridacard and put on credit to last for a week or a month. cards and day tickets can be obtained at shops, adjacent to Waverley and Haymarket stations and other locations.

About one mile away is Haymarket station where most trains heading north into the highlands and to Glasgow or the West Coast Main line stop.

From a nearby road junction known as Western Corner there are very frequent buses to and from the airport X100 and into the city (about 10 minutes). The 31 and the 26 pass through Princes Street. Close to the flat stops service 38 from West Granton by the sea to the Western General hospital. The hospital is close to the trendy area of stockbridge.

For night owls there is a night or N bus service to and from the city centre and Western Corner.

The Ridacard is particularly useful because it also allows free rides on night buses (as well as day) and on the airport bus service (X100 blue buses).

The X100 bus service to the airport and Waverley station runds every 10 minutes and less frequently at night. All other services are frequent, though some services are reduced on sundays. Timetables can be found on the internet. Look for Lothian buses timetables. Enter Journey Planner for Lothian buses and you will be guided to specific buses and times for your journey.

A beautiful and very spacious apartment in a quiet, but accessible spot. There are two double bedrooms, both en-suite, and a lovely lounge, dining room and study. Jim's son, Julian, was really helpful and provided maps and directions and information about buses, shops etc. The outside space is lovely. Highly recommended. Maggie

Perfectly located for Murrayfield, with good public transport links nearby. Very spacious, clean and comfortable apartment in a quiet residential area. We walked into Edinburgh city centre in around 30 minutes.

Jim's house was spacious and conveniently located. The bus stop to the city is about a 5 minute walk away and the neighborhood is quiet and nice to walk around. We also really appreciated the fact that Jim was accommodating of our delayed flight into the city. I would highly recommend staying at Jim's place because your stay is a perfect combination of quiet, relaxing time in the apartment and easy access to the city center.

Super flat in a great location with parking for both cars not a problem, this was a real star find. City Centre was a 5 minute trip away or a 30 minute, easy walk and Edinburgh has something for everyone. Great comm's from Jim and a fine welcome from his son Julian. Very well laid out facility; it's always nice to have a dining room. If we're back in Edinburgh we'll def be booking again if available. The family were good enough to leave milk, sugar and other basics for us, plenty of towels and so on too.

Perfect accommodation for our stay on family business. Comfortable, quiet and well equipped. A large apartment which suited the needs of a family of four allowing enough space to work and relax for everyone. Communication was excellent and accessible. Provided a landscaped outside area as well as interior furnishings all finished to a high standard. Location was perfect for our purposes, being situated half way between the city centre and the suburb of Corstorphine. Also, five mins drive to the zoo! Would highly recommend for a group of four staying with ensuites in both bedrooms.

Jim User ProfileJim is a superhost.

University educated and retired from a professional career I am happy to share our Edinburgh home with discerning professionals, singles, couples or families with school age children (or older).

My career was principally in agricultural development and ranged from soil management to fair trade business development and contract farming. I am widely travelled and with freedom now I still travel.

My hobbies include sailing (a Tayana cruiser based in Greece), scuba diving, underwater and terrestrial photography, mountain walking, skiing as well as urban pursuits of eating out, theatre and more.

I have known Edinburgh for many years and can help you make the most of your time in this fabulous city. If I am not around when you visit my son ( a journalist and website specialist) or my friend Barbara will be there to help you.
