About Rona

I was born in Montrose in the North East of Scotland and brought up in the small town of Forfar. I came to Edinburgh to study, met my husband and the rest is history! My husband comes from York but we both loved Edinburgh so much we couldn't bear to leave so we both found jobs in the city and we were able to buy a flat eventually, moving up the property ladder until we were able to buy both apartments at our current address. Revealing the year your purchased this

Rona purchased this villa in 1999

Why Rona chose Stockbridge

We originally lived in the Upper Villa and we were lucky to buy it from friends as we loved visiting them as the property has some beautiful original features - the cornicing in the drawing room won me over at first sight!

What makes this villa unique

The view from the windows in the drawing room, the coal fire in the drawing room, the spacious rooms all make the Upper Villa feel like a home from home

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this spacious accomodation, lots of room for 8 adults. Modernly updated while still maintaining lots of the old character. Good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area and the city centre is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. Would definately recommend this location.

Perfect location for wandering the city. Beautiful homey apartment with plenty of space for 6 adults and 2 children. We so enjoyed our stay, the neighborhood, and all Stockbridge had to offer.

Central well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely old property, well maintained, very comfortable. Handy welcome pack and loads of odds and ends provided in kitchen cupboards to enable you to feel at home. Perfect for what we wanted. Parking can be a bit tricky so try to get there early and park up and leave your car as close as possible to apartment. Resident's parking outside door and no permit in apartment so had to offload a distance away and carry bags/provisions in. However, just a small consideration.

A great time was had by all :)

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed at this apartment last weekend and we all had a great time, the apartment was all we could wish for. Spacious and everything we needed was there. It was also quite central for getting out and about.

Edinburgh is a beautiful city and the highlight for us were the Christmas Markets. We hope to return.

Can't imagine how it could have been better

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of family spent a wonderful week exploring amazing Edinburgh (and the Fringe Festival!) and a few fun day trips out of the city - and Rona's apartment was the perfect home base. Elegant, so very well equipped, and conveniently located, I can't imagine how it could have been better. Rona was quite helpful and accommodating to our planning and staggered arrivals. The apartment is really lovely and was so very well stocked with all the essentials. One of the nicest rentals we've had the pleasure to 'borrow.'

Sincere thanks!
