Cockburn Street

35 Cockburn Street

This apartment is on the second floor of the Victorian building in the middle of the photograph above right. For Edinburgh it could hardly be more central or more convenient; Cockburn Street (pronounced Co'burn), a lively cosmopolitan mix of specialist music and clothes shops, galleries, pubs and cafés, leads down to Princes Street Gardens from the Royal Mile, a hundred yards away. The flat is 2 minute's walk from Waverley Station, the main railway station.

The apartment, owned by Lorraine and Charles Stewart, is bright and sunny and comfortable, and, with two double beds, a single bed and sofa bed, can sleep 6.

The Stewarts also have 4 other apartments in central Edinburgh: 227 High Street, 6 St Giles Street, 87a West Bow and 112 West Bow. The map at the bottom of the page locates them all.
