Mount Pleasant Properties
Stay in the heart of Edinburgh
Splendid Views | Sleeps 12 | 3 Bathrooms | 200 sqm
The closest apartment in the city to the castle, Ramsay Garden is a highly prized location
The spacious apartment is furnished and decorated to a high standard and is a perfect place to stay for both families and groups of friends. Split over 2 self-contained floors the layout lends itself well to groups who wish to enjoy some privacy using both levels yet still be able to spend time together.
The apartment consists of 4 bedrooms in total, 3 on the upper garden level (2 x king beds and 1 x twin room) and one king size bedroom on the lower ground floor. Two pull-out beds can be used in any of the large rooms on the upper floor to sleep 3 in each of the bedrooms. A further 2 guests can use the sofa bed on the lower ground floor. There are 2 bathrooms upstairs and 1 downstairs.
There is a kitchen and lounge/diner on both levels so the apartment can be booked as an entirety or as 2 separate apartments. The connecting stairway can be closed off for privacy for both parties.
Please see our other listings to enquire about using the apartment as smaller units.
In the upper apartment there are 2 double bedrooms (king size beds), one with en-suite bathroom. There is also a twin bedroom and a further bathroom. 2 additional beds can be prepared in any of the larger bedrooms upon request.
In the upper apartment the well equipped kitchen has a large dining table which will seat up to 10-12 guests. The kitchen opens out in to the large sitting area with stunning views of the castle (Sep to May). The master bedroom en-suite bathroom has a roll top bath, separate shower and can also be accessed via the main hallway. The second bathroom has a large walk-in shower.

Our apartment is at the heart of the most historic part of this beautiful city. You can walk just a few steps outside the front door to reach the Castle Esplanade and Royal Mile. There is no parking with the apartment.
The Waverley train station is just 5-10 minutes walk away, beside which the buses and trams to/from the airport can be used.
The views of the castle will be obscured by the Edinburgh Tattoo stand between the months of May-Sep. Please note that due to the proximity of the castle and Tattoo guests will experience the noise of fireworks during the August period.
Sorry, no stag or hen parties.
Guests will have access to the whole apartment; however, the parking and gardens are for the private use of long term residents.
Our House Manager will be local to attend to any queries or problems.
During August there is heightened security around the castle and Ramsay Garden. Guests may be checked by security staff when approaching the apartment when the Tattoo is in progress.

"Wonderful apartment with the absolute best location ever. The space was clean and very stylish with lots of space for people to hang out together or get a little alone time. Definitely worth it!"
Your Host, Anna
Mat and I are both in the property business and love to visit Edinburgh as often as we can as a family, having previously lived in Scotland for a number of years. We are very happy to give you as much information about the local area and what things to do and see.
