The apartments were built around the site in 1988 perfectly blending an impressive early 20th Century building with contemporary architecture ~ and now set in immaculate landscaped grounds.

Holyrood Park Apartment was mainly built within the original structure ~ it sits right at the top of the South end of the building. In order to enter the hall of the building you walk over a little bridge across the converted (…now a marvelous cycle path) old Innocent Railway line built in 1832 and connecting Dalkeith to Edinburgh.

There is free resident parking.
