It’s just a short walk to the top, where breathtaking views and glorious sunsets can be found and it’s only a few minutes’ walk to the tram line, Waverley station and Princes Street. The setting is peaceful, leafy and green, making this the most tranquil yet contemporary working environment in central Edinburgh.
