Heriott Park Apartments
258 Ferry Road
Stewart Thom's two apartments are on the first and top floors of a Victorian villa overlooking the playing fields of George Heriott's school with panoramic views of the full extent of Edinburgh's skyline. The apartments are affiliated to Heriott Park Guest House next door.
Stewart says, "They are modernised and tastefully decorated, and can sleep up to 8 people each, but I recommend that to maximise your enjoyment, 5 is the optimum."
The Royal Yacht Britannia is moored about a mile away and there are lots of pubs, bars and restaurants also within walking distance.
There are buses every 10 minutes (journey time 10 minutes) to the city centre, which is less than 2 miles away. A Daysaver ticket gives unlimited travel in Edinburgh for £3.50. Alternatively, it is a pleasant 30 minutes walk via the nearby Royal Botanic Garden.
First Floor (1 flight up)
