The property is situated a short walk from the major transport hubs of Waverley Train Station and the tram terminus at York Place, which provides quick and convenient travel to Edinburgh Airport and the bus station at St Andrew’s Square.

The city’s best shopping facilities are available on Princes Street. George Street provides banking, building societies and other financial services. There are a number of post offices from which to choose.
The West End is of course, where Edinburgh’s entertainment facilities tend to be very highly concentrated. Here there is the Usher Hall, the Lyceum Theatre, all manner of restaurants and bars, indoor sports facilities, and Health Clubs. For the energetic, none of these facilities is more than a comfortable walk away.
For those who prefer open-air recreational facilities, Holyrood Park and Princes Street Gardens are virtually on the doorstep. It is only a short trip to the Botanic Gardens and Inverleith Park, whilst from Warriston, the routes of old railway lines radiate out in a variety of directions providing interesting new perspectives on otherwise familiar parts of the city.
