Lovely 1 Bed home in Edinburgh, Scotland

What other capital city has extinct volcanos and heathery wild craggy grassland right in its centre? And where else could you stay in the middle of a city so quiet you can hear the geese grazing on the grassland outside? Edinburgh is unique in having this area of wilderness right in its centre, and my flat is on the edge of it. From the window you can see Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat (the walk to the top takes 25 minutes) and the wide open public space in front used to be Mary Queen of Scotshunting park. The Palace of Holyrood House is virtually next door, and from there you are on the Royal Mile which leads up to Edinburgh Castle. Supermarket, take-aways and provision shops are all nearby. The flat is often used by myself, I'm a political journalist and it's right next to the new Scottish parliament. It's sometimes rented and you can see more info on:
