Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is a city of geographical and cultural diversity. The city is blessed with natural landmarks like, Athur’s Seat, Gullane beaches, Pentlands, Port in Leith, to name a few. Besides this the city also comprises of a number of tourist attractions, leading amongst these are, the Edinburgh Castle, Our Dynamic Earth, Holyrood Palace, Camera Obscurer, etc. Edinburgh has fun and knowledge for people of all age groups. Above all the city has a vibrant economy.


Moreover the Edinburgh festival is organised every year in August which attracts a vast number of tourists from all over the world. During this time of the year Edinburgh’s population doubles. People consider it as their home away from home. There are properties, in terms of flats, houses, apartments to let specially for festival accomodation. One of the flats for festival accomodation are located in the Edinburgh city centre. This is one of the prime location in Edinburgh, mainly because its close to all Edinburgh festival venues for arts, music, film and fringe. Landlords also let Edwardian townhouses in the west end of Edinburgh during this season for holiday accomodation.


In the recent years there has been a trend of property development in the old harbour areas of Leith and Ocean terminal. This trend is specially observed amongst the young professionals who are also partially influenced by the location of new Scottish Government building.

Moreover higher rents in the city have also resulted in the expansion of property market in Bonneyrigg, Penicuik and Midlothian towns in the south.


The universities in Edinburgh are ranked amongst the best in the world. Due to this a number of students come here. Studies have revealed that recently new students arriving in Edinburgh go to university halls of residence in the first year but then they move out into private rental flats in their later years. However this trend is now changing with many students going straight into private rental accomodation. Due to this flats are becoming popular amongst Edinburgh students because they offer good value, more space, more privacy and better standards of living. There are some affordable student flats to let on Easter Road, Leith, City Centre, Abbeyhill, Blackford, Marchmont, Haymarket etc. All these areas are near to the oldest university in Scotland, namely, University Of Edinburgh. Flats in these areas are in the walking distance of Napier university and the Edinburgh University.
