In brief: A bolthole in the city which feels like a country house.
Our highlight: You’ve the option of the services of a personal driver and tour guide who’s also a whisky and golf expert.
Insider guide: The location of this townhouse is pretty amazing. You’re 15 minutes’ walk from Princes Street, but also in the middle of parkland which gives the feel of a country retreat rather than a city break in the capital. Then there’s the history: the building dates back to 1638 and as once home to Robert Louis Stevenson’s family. Philip and Debbie, who own it now, are on hand to help out with anything you need over the course of your stay, too.
