About Fiona

I am a working mother living in Edinburgh! I grew up in Aberdeen in Scotland and have since lived and travelled in Azerbaijan, Australia and Finland. I've now been back in Scotland and in this fantastic city for just over 3 years, and I can really say that Edinburgh feels like our home.

There are so many hidden places to discover in (and around) Edinburgh, it constantly surprises me even after years of living here.

I look forward to sharing this beautiful city with you. :D

Fiona purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Fiona chose Edinburgh

I live nearby and love the area. It's so close to the city centre with all its attractions and all my favorite shops and cafes are nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

Ideal for larger families or small groups, I love the space in this apartment. It's huge, bright and sunny and has great views across Edinburgh's rooftops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a stunning Penthouse apartment as it says in the headline. We didn't take our car so can't comment on the free parking but we're sure it's there. Fiona was very welcoming giving us a quick and informative tour of the apartment and the offer of more help if we wanted it at any time. Plenty of room for our family of 4. The only argument was which of our kids had the double bedroom with the en-suite and which had to walk a few yards down the hall. Honestly, they don't know how lucky they are as we all had a very spacious bathroom to ourselves for the entire stay.

All the facilities were of high standard and sofas, seats and beds (all the essentials) very comfortable. We were all intrigued by the 'Fat Boy' bean bag (with the bright red flower in the picture) and our kids ended up spending most of their time on this when we were in. There are plenty of great restaurants and cafes only a few minutes walk away from the apartment and Fiona or the house guide will be able to make some recommendations. We enjoyed I (heart) cafe and Pomegranate but ventured further afield to try the Tower and The Pompadour by Galvin for this special birthday weekend. A few more minutes walk and you're in the heart of Edinburgh so the apartment is very well located. Just in case you wonder what the large building opposite the apartment is if you look at the panorama view it's a bus garage and we had absolutely no noise problems at all. It was winter and we kept the windows closed but we don't think it would be a problem even in the height of summer. No place is ever perfect, particularly when you like your home comforts as we do, but this apartment is as close as you're ever likely to find. If it's available when you want to go to Edinburgh don't hesitate to book it.

Must place to stat in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

This our second stay in the penthouse, and we enjoyed it as much as the first time, if not more.Fiona is a great host, lots of nice touches, and is on the end of the phone if you need to speak to her.The flat is so comfortable with everything you need, spotlessly clean, thick towels, lovely smelling bedding, comfy beds it's just fabulous, didn't want to come home.We could walk to princess street in 10 minutes, so a great location.Lots of nice places to eat, we ate in Mama Roma which is a 5 minute walk away, very nice, staff very friendly. We even had sunshine on our trip in February so sat with a glass of fizz admiring the stunning view of my favourite city on the balcony.Want a fabulous flat book this flat you won't be disappointed. Thanks for a great stay, From Andrea

Penthouse Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about the apartment. It was the perfect amount of space for us, giving everyone a place to come together to eat, socialize and play cards, but everyone also had their own space when they wanted some quiet time.

Perfectly located, we were able to walk the city and enjoy all of the food and sights without having to worry about transportation. Fiona was kind enough to send along some recommendations for some Christmas activities that were going on before we got there and it just added to what was an amazing vacation.

If you are looking to stay in Edinburgh this is the perfect spot.
