Sandaig is in the middle of this photo taken from the park

Sandaig is a very friendly and welcoming guest house run by owners Marina and Derek Ferbej at 5, East Hermitage Place, a Victorian terrace looking out over Leith Links park. The links was one of the oldest golf courses in th world - 5 holes, where the rules of golf were actually invented, and first mentioned in 1552.

Each of the eight bedrooms has its own smart modern private shower-room en suite, some face to the front looking over the park, and others to the back over quiet residential streets. Families are very welcome, and there is a range of rooms with extra beds.

It's an easy and pleasant walk to the newly developed and fashionable "Edinburgh Waterfront" of the Water of Leith where there are some really excellent restaurants and pubs, and there are regular buses to and from Princes Street - the journey taking 10 minutes.
