My place has fantastic links to Edinburgh city centre and free parking. You can get one bus from Waverly train station and a direct bus from the airport. It's a short bus ride or about 40 min walk to Princess Street. The Shore is a very cool and hipster part of Edinburgh, full creatives and wonderful art/culture. There's a wonderful local market on a Saturday and a real local community feel. I like to think of it as the Shoreditch of Edinburgh (albeit a bit less gritty!)
My place is good for couples and solo adventurers and is within walking distance of 3 Michelin starred restaurants. It is a very foodie area so if you like good dining then this is your place, there are also excellent eateries that are easier on the wallet than Michelin star! Places include: Norn, Martin Wisharts, The Kitchen, Amfora and The Ship on the Shore.
