Porteous Pend entrance

The apartment has one double bedroom and is just inside Porteous' Pend (...the entrance in the middle of the photograph top right).

Wrought iron gates lead through to some sheltered and quiet flats and this one is on the top floor, two flights up.

There's a Laura Ashley day-bed in the sitting room which turns into 2 full size single beds so 4 people can stay.

This photograph, right, shows the view of Edinburgh Castle across Grassmarket from just outside the entrance to the Porteous' Pend.

This really is an exciting place to stay, a quiet little hideaway in the heart of Edinburgh, memorably close to the towering presence of Edinburgh Castle, and with plenty to see and do on your doorstep and the rest of the historic city within walking distance.
