GRAN­DEUR

You have the grand­ness of Ed­in­burgh all around about you. There are all these big, grand, amaz­ing spa­ces.

PRI­VATE GAR­DENS

When you own a house in New Town, you get a key to the pri­vate gar­dens. You can’t even see some of them. One of the pri­vate en­trance­ways—you wouldn’t even know it’s there. There’s a wall and a lit­tle door and you go through it and then you’re in this amaz­ing gar­den. You have a key and it’s like a se­cret world.

STOCKBRIDGE

A five-minute walk away, it’s small and cute with a vil­lage feel. It’s got these great lit­tle shops. Cheese shops and fish shops, lit­tle bars and restau­rants. This vi­brant com­mu­nity is on our doorstep, and it’s re­ally flour­ish­ing.

COUN­TRY­SIDE

It’s re­ally easy to get into the coun­try in Ed­in­burgh, so if you want to get away, you re­ally do get away.
