The apartment is pet friendly which was a significant part of the reason for booking as was the location and access to facilities & attractions. The Cooperage gets top marks in all areas.

Reviewed by Angela 19th May 2018

The apartment is in an ideal position by the Water of Leith. There is a walk along the Leith Walkway into Edinburgh which is wonderful. Two and a quarter miles away from the traffic! You can leave your car at the apartment and catch one of the many buses into the city centre, very frequent and reasonably priced.
