Edinburgh is steeped in history, which is why we think your trip to this enchanting city should reflect that. Step into a Georgian dream when you stay in this 18th-century apartment. Period flagstones adorn the hallway, one of many original features. The large ceilings and long sash windows are typically Georgian and let plenty of natural light into the grand rooms. One of the most elegant areas of the city, New Town is characterised by pretty avenues and open squares. Head to George Street for a spot of upmarket shopping or drop by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery for a culture fix. Relax in the drawing room’s velvet armchairs after a day of sightseeing. Prepare for a night out like the lords and ladies of the 18th-century in the golden gilded mirror above the bedroom’s fireplace. Once it’s time to turn in, it’s a restful night’s sleep atop the cast iron bedsteads.
