The Wee Highland Coo, Grassmarket

The Wee Highland Coo is a cosy apartment located in the historic Grassmarket area of Edinburghs Old Town. The private and quiet courtyard complex, which has a stunning view of the Castle, is the perfect base from which to explore what Edinburgh has to offer. All the main attractions, a wide selection of great bars, restaurants and cafes are all on your doorstep and only a short walk away.

Air- There is a new tram service that takes 35 mins from Edinburgh Airport to the city centre. From there it is an easy 10 minute walk to the apartment. The Airlink 100 Bus travels along the same route but may take slightly longer dependent on traffic.

Train- Edinburgh's Waverley Station is a 10 minute walk from the apartment or a short taxi journey. Taxis can be found outside the station on Market Street and cost around £5-7.

Car- Easy to access by car however as the apartment is central, on street parking is expensive (£3 an hour for a max of 4 hours). If driving I would recommend using an out of town park and rides.

Park and Rides are free for up to a week and have a bus that runs into the city centre taking about 20-30 minutes, costing £1.60 each way. From the bus stop on Lothian Road, it is a 5 minute walk to the apartment:

Hermiston Park and Ride
Riccarton Mains Road, Currie, Edinburgh, EH14 5PX

Ingliston Park and Ride
Ingliston, Edinburgh, EH28 8LS

Straiton Park and Ride
Straiton Road, Straiton, Edinburgh, EH20 9NP

*Other options can be found on the a park and ride

Castle Terrace long stay car park is a 5 minute walk but will cost you £27.50 a day.


There is paid parking available directly outside the apartment. There is also a multi-storey car park just around the corner. There is also a park and ride carpark, which is free, and there is a bus which has a stop just a few minutes walk from the apartment. The bus takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
