  • About the location of Crags View Apartment (Old Town, Edinburgh)

    There is plenty to see and do in Edinburgh and a lot of it can be reached easily on foot, making the apartment an ideal location to use as your base. With so many beautiful buildings and so much history to take in, walking is a great way to observe and explore the city, taking in the atmosphere and mixing with the locals, treading the same pavements walked by scores before you, including some very famous historic figures.

    The tour buses also give a unique perspective, covering plenty of the main sights and their tour guides are sure to give you an entertaining commentary with plenty of facts and stories. The city also has a good network of public transport, and there are always taxis if you need them. Edinburgh is a unique city and ideally suited to visitors. It is steeped in history, and we have so much to see and do that you will be spoiled for choice. Among many other things, we have world heritage sites, monuments, a royal palace, green spaces, stunning architecture, restaurants, museums, cafes, art galleries, theatres, a zoo, all kinds of shopping options and our own Castle!

    An important thing to know about Edinburgh city centre is that it is a town of two halves, old and new. The medieval Old Town grew up around the Royal Mile and many of the buildings date back to those times. As the population increased the wealthier residents increasingly wanted to escape the noisy and crowded accommodation and the New Town was developed with itas beautiful neo-classical architecture and wide streets. The gaps between the Old and New Town filled over time and the result is the eclectic and fascinating mixture of architecture you can see today.

    Don't forget to look up as you go about the city, you'll be amazed by the details on the buildings!
