74 Thistle Street

Flat 3, 74 Thistle Street

The entrance to Flat 3 is almost in the middle of the photograph (right). You can't actually see the apartment windows because it is a loft conversion secluded above the roof eaves.

Thistle Street's cobbled surface and small old Georgian houses runs east west parallel with Princes Street and George Street. It is one of the best locations in Edinburgh for small independent fashion and shoe shops, boutiques, good restaurants, cafés and bars, and is almost pedestrian with little traffic, and very central for easy walking and exploring Edinburgh.

Though this is an old Georgian building dating from the end of the 1700's the apartment is an exciting modern space, with natural wooden floors, and both hi-fi audio and free broadband internet access throughout.

To enquire or to book:
