Summer Stays at Canal Point, Edinburgh
Whether you're in Edinburgh to study the history, see the fantastic architecture, take in the scenery or have a laugh at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world's largest arts festival - we have the perfect summer accommodation for you. This capital of Scotland, is also where JK Rowling wrote the majority of the Harry Potter books so you can see her inspiration and sit in the same Cafe, Alohomora!
Our Canal Point student residence is empty during July and August which seems a shame, so we open it up to everyone, offering great value short stay apartments from just £40 per night. The building is located in central Edinburgh, close to the Grassmarket and within a 15-minute walk from Edinburgh Castle. All accommodation at Canal Point has a modern design with turquoise finishes.
