Abbeyhill is one of the oldest districts of Edinburgh, taking its name from Holyrood Abbey, the remains of which can still be seen lying adjacent to Holyrood Palace.  Milton Street, built in the 1890’s, is a quiet cul-de-sac comprised of attractive stone tenement housing which lies just behind Holyrood Palace and beside Royal Holyrood Park: 640 acres of gloriously wild parkland in the heart of the city incorporating Arthur’s Seat and offering wonderful walking, cycling, running and a multitude of other outdoor pursuits.


Milton Street is well served by local shops and amenities on nearby London Road and a variety of high street shops, including a Sainsbury’s supermarket, at Meadowbank Retail Park. It also lies within easy walking distance of the historic old town, the Royal Mile and the retail, business and financial districts of Edinburgh City Centre.  The property is just a short walk from Meadowbank Sports Centre offering state-of -the-art fitness facilities, multi-sports courts and promising to be one of the country’s leading community sports centres.


The property is well served by excellent transport links both into and out of the city with regular bus services running along nearby London Road, Waverley Station within easy walking distance and the A1 and city bypass just a short drive away.
