Claremont Cottage is located a short distance to the North East of Edinburgh city centre, set in the grounds of a secluded, gated Georgian Villa.
Overlooking Leith Links, the cottage is in the heart of Leith (the house was built by a sea captain and lived in by the engineer who built the docks themselves). We are very close to bus routes and only a few minutes travel from Edinburgh’s most popular attractions, such as Museums, Art Galleries, Restaurants and Pubs.
Off street parking is available if travelling by car and access easy from the A1 nearby. Edinburgh Airport to the west is accessible by tram, bus, car or taxi. Bus routes also connect to the central train terminus, Waverley Station and the tram terminus at York Place.
The Airport is approximately seven miles west of the city centre and costs between £25 and £28 to travel to Claremont Cottage by taxi.
The Edinburgh Tram runs to York Place above St Andrews Square and costs £5 single/£8 return. The airport bus to Waverley Bridge (Airlink 100 – Stance 19) beside the station and just off Princes Street, costs £4 single/£7.00 return. A Taxi to the Cottage from the Train or Bus Station/Tram Terminus at St Andrews Square/York Place takes about eight minutes and should cost around £6.
It costs £1.50 by bus from the centre of town – either the Number 12 or 25 heading east from Princes Street will bring you to within 200m.
