The McDonald Residence Edinburgh

In a lovely quiet area just off Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, nestling at the foot of historic Calton Hill, the seriously stylish three bedroom McDonald Residence Edinburgh, now known as The Malt Kiln Apartment, is your perfect relaxing holiday retreat. On the site of the former historic Canongate brewery maltings, only minutes walk away from the main attractions in City Centre Edinburgh, the flat has been expertly designed to give you a stylish contemporary Scottish welcome.

Appreciate the Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired architecture of The McDonald Residence Edinburgh as you return to your city hideaway after an afternoon perhaps strolling on the Royal Mile, having taken in all the lovely shops with their local crafts and cashmere, and historic sights such as the magnificent St.Giles Cathedral.

Sink back into the luscious comfort of your large corner sofa piled high with cushions in wools, plaids and silks, as you relax and plan your evening out maybe at one of Edinburgh’s many wonderful restaurants – some are Michelin starred. Or see if there is something that takes your fancy on stage for a wonderful night at one of Edinburgh’s world-class theatres.

Crisp white 200 count Egyptian cotton bed linen and pocket spring mattresses provide the ultimate comfort for a great night’s sleep, as you recharge from your days exploring this iconic city.

Bedroom 1 features a super king bed, which can also be set up as two single beds, In bedroom 2 you will find a double bed (access to bed from one side only), and in bedroom 3, a king size bed (which can be made up as two small singles). There is a main bathroom with a bath and shower over, toilet and basin.

The flat comes with a flat screen smart TV, Bose Soundtouch bluetooth speaker and wifi throughout and benefits from the convenience of a designated garage parking space. The apartment is on the first floor.

A selection of restaurants and cafes are right on your doorstep on the Royal Mile tempting you to dine close to home after a busy day exploring, or even for breakfast al fresco! There is also a local food store conveniently located to the rear of the apartment block, and a supermarket a few minutes walk away should you wish to chill out and cook at home in your fully-equipped kitchen – which includes a dishwasher, washing machine and microwave.
