What an exciting month it has been leading up to the Festival in Edinburgh.  

And now in Auchterarder we are preparing for the Ryder Cup with our very own Riverside Cottage only a 5 minutes drive from the lovely Gleneagles.

This excellent cottage is available to book with us as soon as you are ready.  Such a breathtaking experience photographing this lovely scenic garden with so many special hideaways to get away from everyone you bring with you.  As much as it is only a 2 bedroom cottage it has the space both inside and out to sit a unit or camper van on the Driveway.  That way you can invite your good friends and family to stay and share your experience.

I also need to tell you that should you book this you are welcome to use the owners 8 berth boat which docks on Loch Lomond just outside of the lovely Cameron house.


We are also happy to package up everything for you from your arrival to Edinburgh airport, perhaps a stay in Edinburgh first , your transport to Auchterarder, golf tea times and any other service you require to make your stay in Scotland the best it has ever been.

A Huge thank you to all our guests' who continually respect our apartments.  I am absolutely delighted to say that over the exciting Rugbys in Edinburgh with the Welsh and Irish that we continue to welcome back well behaved and respectful friends to Edinburgh. St Patricks day last week end was a very exciting time for us here in Edinburgh too.  We had all our large apartments full.  I must say seeing the arriving crowd of 14 guests with their fun hats on and all dressed up for the occassion was fantastic however, there is always the fear that the crowd will noise up residents.  We are clear about this from the start and glad that this messege is clear.  The guests are keeping our apartments clean too and we thank you so much for that.  Our housekeeper is delighted too.  It means that we can continue to keep providing more fun apartments at the price you can afford to pay.  All 14 guests get the chance to be together in one large apartment.  This freedom respectfully beats any faceless hotel. 

 We love our guests having good clean fun because we are a fun company ourselves.  Our West Maitland Street apartment has proven to be an absolute success.  The spacious 5 bedroom apartment spells fun all around it.  It is designed to bring you joy.  The 50 shades room is spacious enough providing 4 single beds, the New York room has 3 single beds, We have 2 rooms with zip and link hotel style rooms and the Beach room gives you the feeling of relaxation.   The dining lounge can cater for the full 14 sitting chatting around the table enjoying the creativity.  The Vegas or Hollywood feeling may get you as the Fizz does its trick.  

The large Edinburgh West End apartment was created for you with what most large groups desire whether it is a stag or hen party a rugby week end, St Patricks week end, the Marathon, Easter, Edinburgh's festival, Christmas, Hogmany or almost any event possible.  An excellent choice for families too as there is something for everyone.  The pictures in the 50 shades room can be removed at anyones request should they have youngsters or if they find them distasteful. We don't mind we are here to help you find comfort and joy.

Looking forward to hearing from you again.

In case you hadn’t noticed, Christmas is well on its way, especially in Edinburgh, and we at EdBook are very excited so we thought we would give you our guide to Christmas in the Scottish capital.

Let us set the scene, you’ve got your Santa hats on and a hot chocolate in your hand, Edinburgh castle is lit up behind you and you are with your friends and family relaxing with a spot of Christmas shopping. Sound like a good day?

We can’t forget what else Edinburgh is famous for, Hogmanay of course, and in 2013 it is set to be bigger and better than ever! So grab your friends, the beer, and your hats and scarves (the woollier the better) and book an apartment now! You can all be together and do what you want, when you want. Even spend New Year’s Day chilling out on the sofa watching TV, nursing your head from the night before. That is the beauty of an apartment; it’s a home from home.

The festive season can be far from relaxing for some. Maybe you need a post Christmas romantic break. Start the New Year on a high with a stay at our Jeffrey Street Apartment http://www.edbook.co.uk/directory/properties/view/31315-jeffrey-street-apartment

Its breath taking location, just off the Royal Mile, leaves you within walking distance of the Castle and many outstanding restaurants such as The Witchery and Motheiths.

Christmas trees are sprouting up throughout the city providing many a street and shop with a festive glow. The main event, which attracts people from all over the world, has to be the Christmas market, this year until the 4th January, bringing a festive buzz to the centre. From German beer to chocolate filled crepes, from ice skating to the big wheel, there is plenty to keep adults and children alike thoroughly entertained.

Whether you plan on enjoying the festive season with family or friends, Edinburgh is the perfect city to take a break. We offer a range of apartments in different locations around the city. The beautiful large group apartment can sleep up to 14 people http://www.edbook.co.uk/directory/properties/view/34318-a-large-group-city-centre-apartmentThis is brand new to Edbook and available for Christmas and New Year  It is in a great location and an easy walk to the city centre. I would thoroughly recommend it.  Excellent value for money which leaves each guest to get their priorities right and spend their cash doing all the exciting things Edinburgh has to offer.  This is easy to do once you have your accomodation sorted and the price is right.

So the question is who are you going to bring?

Don't miss Edinburgh's Hogmany ‘Be Lucky’ in 2013 and join the world famous Edinburgh's Hogmanay.
With spectacular events, incredible bands and amazing crowds from every corner of the globe, we show the world how to party.  Torchlight procession, Simple minds, macabees street party and many more suprises to put the warmth back into your cheeks this exciting winter.

Whatever you are thinking about this Christmas and New Year Edbook are right here at your service.  We wish you all the very best and hope we can help fill it with fun just for you.

One day her prince will come... With a tv crew and a personal stylist. A 21st century tale of love and loss.

A new twist on a classic tale, this Cinderella is relocated to modern-day Paris where she lives with her father and longs for the love and glamour of a rather unique Prince. Her world is shattered by the arrival of the wonderfully hilarious and awful ‘new sisters’ and their truly terrifying mother, Monique. Where is a Fairy Godmother when you need one?

Featuring original songs sung live by the cast, with magic, spells and lots of laughs, the Lyceum will deliver another high quality production to delight families this Christmas.

This new version of a much-loved fairytale is by Johnny McKnight, a well-known writer, director and performer who has written many versions of famous Christmas stories for Scottish theatre. We are delighted to bring Lyceum audiences the première of his version ofCinderella.

Cinderella will be directed by the Lyceum's Artistic Director Mark Thomson (The Snow QueenThe Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe).

For many in Edinburgh the Christmas holiday would not be the same without  a traditional visit to one of Edinburgh’s famous Pantomimes.

This Christmas join Mother Goose and Priscilla, the Goose that lays the golden eggs, on a flight of fantasy in an unmissable pantomime adventure.
This year’s action-packed production promises another must-see King’s Theatre pantomime featuring an abundance of comedy, fabulous sets, outrageous costumes…together with a few surprises! You won't want to miss the only pantomime in Edinburgh with true eggs-factor this Christmas.
