Our home

My quiet, cosy apartment is 3rd floor of Royal Mile Mansions (RMM)in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. It looks on to Royal Mile; or you can view Cockburn Street, Edinburgh New Town and Forth Bridges. RMM has lift and helpful on-site concierge staff. The flat has secondary glazing. There is a carpeted double bedroom, tiled bathroom with shower, and kitchen with window breakfast bar for two. The carpeted lounge/dinette has double bed settee, 3 armchairs, extending dining table and TV. The library is worth a browse, especially on a wet day. WiFi desk is in work area off tiled hall-way. The flat is close to rail and bus terminals, including airport link bus. Excellent butcher and fish shops within 10 minutes walk, as well as Sainsbury and Tesco food stores for home cooking. Cafe Royal Oyster Bar and bistro, where a scene from 'Chariots of Fire' was filmed is only 5 minutes walk.

Who we are

  1. I am a semi-retired Scottish academic in human resource development who lives part of the year in my studio apartment in Thailand, half-way between Bangkok and Pattaya, and part in Edinburgh or elsewhere in Europe - wherever business or pleasure happens to take me!

    I am an original owner of the flat in RMM and have not exchanged it before, though I have exchanged houses in a previous existence.

    I enjoy cycling - there is an old racer in the flat that you are welcome to use! I am also interested in longer exchanges in Europe or South America at any time of the year.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The flat is in a listed building in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, adjoining the Royal Mile which extends from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building. It is within 5 minutes walk of Princes Street and its gardens, and the magnificent architecture of the New Town. Edinburgh is a World Heritage Centre, home to the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe each August, and famous for New Year festivities. Edinburgh houses world famous national art galleries and museums, some like the National Museum of Scotland and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery that have been recently refurbished. Its parks include Arthur's Seat, Calton Hill and the Meadows, all within walking distance. Parking can be a challenge around RMM, but city-buses pass the door, or, better still, one can walk anywhere in the City Centre in about 10 minutes!
