Parks & Nature

Being so close to the apartments, it's a must to climb this old volcano with a spectacular view. Wear sensible shoes and take a jacket / umbrella as this is Scotland! Free.

A lot quieter than Arthur's seat and a much shorter climb. Good for a sunset and its on the walk into the city from the apartment if you go via Regents Street. Free.

Great selection of burgers and sides, add the "posh" mull of kintyre cheese in place of the regular. Go early as you can't book a table and have to join a queue when it gets busy from 6:30 onwards.

Awesome selection of cheese and you can get a cheese and ham toasty to eat in a small seating area at the back of the store. Comes with olives and you can help yourself to free tap water. Nice lunch for £5 each per person.

Our favourite of Edinburgh's Michelin star restaurants. Feels relatively relaxed compared to some of the others and they offer a good value set lunch menu. You need to book in advance but worth it for a special occasion.

Lovely restaurant for a special occasion very nearby the apartment, only a 10 minute walk. The setting is as the name suggests in an old gardener's cottage. They do a constantly changing seasonal set menu for lunch or dinner and your sat at communal long tables which makes for a great atmosphere even if not busy, we got speaking to an american couple when we went which is a nice change from the usual. Book ahead as its small.

Best coffee in Edinburgh in my opinion, hipster and delicious. They roast their own coffee. Flat whites are amazing. They also have a few other branches, all are great.
