Drummond House

Flat 40
Drummond House
Drummond Street

Drummond House used to be a school but has now been converted to modern apartments. You can see the tall arched window of Flat 40 to the left of the middle of the photograph (right).

This is an exciting and central place to stay. A couple of hundred yards away is one of Scotland's finest buildings: the monumental entrance and quadrangle of Edinburgh University Old College by Robert Adam and William Playfair. The Royal Museum of Scotland is a little further on. It is close to the Royal Mile and Festival Theatre and all parts of the city centre are accesible on foot.

The area has book shops, music shops and plenty of restaurants, cafés and bars and also multi-cultural specialist food shops - for extra spice in your Edinburgh self-catering experience.

The apartment sleeps 4 plus 2 and has two bathrooms - and free private secure off-street parking.
