Types of houses to rent in Edinburgh

The diversity of houses to rent in Edinburgh reflects the city's long and fascinating history, with properties to suit every taste and budget.

Georgian homes are to be found in abundance in certain parts of the city, particularly in the New Town. This popular and attractive area of Edinburgh was constructed to the North of the Castle during the 18th century Enlightenment, following plans drawn up by prize-winning architect James Craig.

Architecture by the renowned Robert Adam is also to be found in the city, with one striking example being Charlotte Square at the west end of Princes Street. This is considered to be one of the finest Georgian Squares in the world.

In the south of the city, many pleasant residential areas - such as Marchmont, Newington, Bruntsfield, Morningside and Merchiston - continue to be popular both with families and with Edinburgh's many students. Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus lives in Marchmont, while Morningside was home to Muriel Spark's Miss Jean Brodie.

The 21st century has seen Leith transformed into an up-and-coming, trendy place for young professionals and students, who take full advantage of the bistros and pubs which proliferate in this buzzing area of the city. If you're seeking the advantages of contemporary-style accommodation, Leith may well be the place for you.

If you're more traditional in your tastes, a search through the Citylets database reveals numerous period houses for rent in Edinburgh that offer traditional living, many with contemporary touches for added convenience.
