We have a lovely garden, patio area hosting a Barbecue, patio heater, fire pit and an sunken in ground trampoline which is fab in the nice weather & can also be great in winter if you wrap up warm!! It is Scotland after all.

Our home has a king size Master bedroom plus 2 further double bedrooms. Our second sitting room with a very comfortable double sofa bed if ye need more space.

Quartier

Description de notre quartier et ses alentours

We live in the Shandon area, which is close to central Edinburgh. Our community has lots of green space with dog friendly playparks and our street is right beside the lovely Union Canal which houses houseboats, a cafe and further down the canal has a host of bars and restaurants as well as Craiglockhart and Glenlockhart Hills which are a short way away from where you can see the whole city when you reach the top. The area has the cosy feel of a village and is a very friendly community with lots of local amenities from local shops, cafe, bars, restaurants to bigger supermarkets still within walking distance. We are about 2 mins walk to a bus stop which brings you direct to the city centre in about 10-15 mins or you can get to Princes St down the quiet relaxing Union canal path in roughly half an hour. Edinburgh is famous for its historic old town and castle and the Festival and Fringe which last throughout August and when it is extremely difficult to find accomodation. We'd pick this time to travel leaving a great time for others to visit. There is a kayak and canoe club on the canal which offer lessons.

We have extremely friendly neighbours also which is a bonus when you are new to an area

A Faire

Nos conseils pour des restaurants, cafés, shopping et activitiés à ne pas manquer

Shandon is a vibrant place with local shops, cafe, hairdressing salons and some very good pubs. We are only a short walk away from the Fountainpark area which has a great multiplex IMAX cinema as well as Ten pin bowling, casino, gym etc...and some fantastic pubs and restaurants if you wanted to stay more locally. But we are also a 2 minute walk from many direct buses which take you into the city in 15minutes. Shandon is also equidistant to both Gorgie which has many local shops and supermarkets and also the lovely Bruntsfield and Morningside which have lovely boutiques, cafes and bars. We have the best of both worlds we think. Edinburgh has also been voted the 4th best city in the world recently so come and swap with us.
