The City Bothy is in Jamaica Mews, part of Edinburgh’s (actually rather old) New Town (see map). The surrounding district has been awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO, to mark the unique beauty of its built environment.

Amenities within reasonable walking distance of the apartment include the National Gallery of Scotland, National Portrait Gallery, Harvey Nichols, Princes St (Edinburgh’s main shopping thoroughfare), George St (a far nicer place to shop), and Edinburgh’s mainline Waverley Station. The studio is also very convenient for the Traverse Theatre and the Edinburgh International Book Festival, two of the biggest and best attractions at August’s Edinburgh festivals.

But, if you’re feeling lazy, you hardly have to leave your door. The nearest grocery store - and cashpoint - is a two-minute stroll from the City Bothy. Our local pubs, Kay’s Bar and Iglu, are two of Edinburgh’s best, while the latter also has an award-winning organic restaurant.
