ABOUT EDINBURGH

We are based in Edinburgh, regularly voted as the most liveable city in the UK.  Our ‘Grade A’ offices in the West End have excellent views of Edinburgh Castle and are within close walking distance to the city centre.

Despite being the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is a relatively small city, with many of the sights being readily accessible by foot, or a short bus/tram ride. A stroll through the Old Town is a must, as its character is what draws many to the city.
