Flat in Edinburgh, Great Britain

 Our home is a 19th century tenement flat near the beach. We have been living there for the past 10 years. It has 3 large bedrooms, a dining room, a kitchen, a living room and a bathroom. It is a very quiet place and ideal to discover Edinburgh and Scotland.
The flat is located at the end of a cul-de-sac street leading to the beach. The Promenade is a great walking street along the sea front, with playgrounds, cafes and a Victorian swimming pool. The High Street, at 2 minutes walk, has a lot of shops, restaurants and pubs.
We are on a main route for buses travelling to the city centre.
