Castle Heights Information


Welcome to our unique apartment with its world-class view of Edinburgh Castle, perfectly placed in the historic Grassmarket. Located on the top (4th) floor of an impressive 18th century listed building in the heart of Edinburgh's vibrant Old Town, you'll not find a better location! We have thought through every detail to give you a relaxing, comfortable and truly memorable first class stay. The unrivalled views of Edinburgh Castle from the living/kitchen space and the bedroom are simply exceptional and in themselves make for an unforgettable trip. Sit in the window seat with a coffee and drink in the breathtaking view! From the window, during the Edinburgh Festival you can hear the world famous Tatoo and see the spectacular fireworks at Hogmanay over the Castle. A once in a lifetime experience! Edinburgh is a magical city to explore and after a long day walking and discovering hidden gems it's just perfect to come back to this cosy and comfortable space that feels like home, with every mod con you could need. We know on a short stay you don't want to have to stock up on basics so you'll find sugar, salt, olive oil and balsamic vinegar as well as a large selection of local speciality teas and coffees including a Nespresso coffee machine and a generous supply of complimentary pods for when you want to just chill in the apartment. You’ll also find an Honesty Bar stocked with quality drinks and snacks with a Scottish flavour if you feel like a quiet night in or a wee dram before going out. The apartment has one double bedroom with a lovely, comfortable double bed but also has a comfortable sofa bed in the living room to accommodate a third guest. This means that the apartment would be perfect for a single traveller, a couple, or a family of three. The bedroom also has views of Edinburgh Castle, a velux window with remote-controlled black-out blind and a fresh wardrobe with plenty of hangers.

Castle Heights is your little oasis of calm, located on the top floor of a historic stone building and impeccably presented. As well as its world-class views you’ll find cosy tartan blankets, an Honesty Bar, a Nespresso machine for your coffee fix, warmth, charm, plenty of personal touches, local flavour and the warmest of welcomes to make your Edinburgh visit unforgettable. Upon booking we'll share with you our insider tips for all our favourite hidden gems in the city from coffeeshops with soul, breathtaking rooftop views and magic around every corner. Having run our own businesses for a number of years with backgrounds in jewellery design and joinery we both possess an eye for detail and delivering exceptional customer care. Work is a passion for both of us but outside of this we love photography, cycling, running and hiking. We’re constantly drawn to Scotland’s wild beauty and love exploring the West Coast and Islands with our two girls in the VW campervan Roland converted last year. Please contact us with any questions, we’re always happy to help and we look forward to welcoming you to Castle Heights and Edinburgh so you can enjoy this breathtaking view on your next trip.
