with very easy access to the terrific range of pubs, restaurants and shops in the Leith waterfront area. A walkway along the river will take you into Stockbridge and the New Town of Edinburgh, or the regular buses take you direct to Princes Street in about 25 minutes. There is so much to explore and discover, with the Royal Yacht Britannia close by, while the Old Town has shops and restaurants hidden away in its cobbled wynds and closes. Edinburgh is a year round festival city with events, theatres, galleries and music to suit all interests and tastes. Best explored on foot, it is very accessible but also has a great café culture and good public transport when you are foot weary and need a lift home! Beach 3½ miles. Shop 330 yards, pub 220 yards and restaurant 275 yards.
