About the location (Leith, Edinburgh)
Leith is the old maritime centre of Edinburgh. Its shipping heyday is behind it now, but the popular dockside restaurants, bars and shops have a unique charm and make Leith a vibrant place to hang out.
Walk the Water of Leith, one of the cityas most iconic walks and perfect for a delightful stroll, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Leithas shops tend to have a charm all of their own. Off-beat eco-friendly shop Flux is a top spot for unusual gifts, whilst Georgian Antiques affords ample opportunity to browse one of Scotlandas largest antique emporiums. Ocean Terminal, designed by Terence Conran, houses all the big names.
Leith Walk and Elm Row, stretching from Leith up into town, is lined by a highly eclectic collection of shops, including bakeries (try the Sicilian Pastry Shop for great cakes), food shops and charity shops. An institution among book lovers for almost 60 years, McNaughtanas Bookshop is ideal whether youare on the look-out for a special present or fancy a rummage. Meanwhile, book and music fans should check out Elvis Shakespeare and Vinyl Villains.
There is more to eating and drinking in Leith than ticking off Michelin -stars. You donat have to look far to find a great pub and the stylish Shore area in Leith is full of them, including The Kings Wark (which also happens to do some of the best burgers in the city), Nobles and Leith Beer Co. Make sure to stop by the chintzy, charming Roseleaf Bar for a cocktail in a china teapot or fantastic homemade pub food.
For some famous Leith seafood fare check out Fishers on the Shore, or try Bistro Province which brings French flair to this part of the city and is well worth seeking out for dinner.
Love cake? A visit to the mouth-watering Mimi's Bakehouse is a must or pick up picnic supplies from the authentic Italian institution that is Valvona and Crolla on Elm Row.
Located in the quiet residential street of McDonald Road within a 15-minute stroll of Princess Street and close to the delights of Broughton Street. The local area offers a varied range of retail & specialist shops, delicatessens, galleries, cafes, bars and independent restaurants. Nearby, you can enjoy walks along the Water of Leith waterway and not much further afield are the highly acclaimed Royal Botanic Gardens. Edinburghas rich choice of theatres, cinema complexes, museums, galleries and libraries are all close by on foot, with public transport links available should you prefer to take the bus or tram.
Most of the sites are within walking distance. Arriving from Waverley train station and walking to the flat is relatively easy if you have a free wheeling suitcase as its all down hill, heading back up might draw a sweat! There is a bus and tram stop on nearby Elm Row/York Place where connections can be made to the airport. Bus connections are great, with all buses taking you to the city centre, Edinburgh Botanic Gardens and Ocean Terminal.
