Academy Lofts lies at the south west corner of Leith Links, next to the artificial mound known as "Mount Somerset", which is said to have been built as an artillery battery in 1560 during the Siege of Leith.

Leith Links are situated approximately 2 miles to the North East of Edinburgh's city centre and has excellent road and public transport links both into town and out to the city bypass and East Lothian.

The new tram network will pass close by to the apartment alongside nearby Constitution Street on completion.

Leith has a wealth of excellent eateries, including Martin Wishart's Michelin-starred restaurant and 'The Kitchin', many seafood specialists, and plenty of cosy Scottish pubs. You can even have food on board 'The Fingal', an incredible floating hotel.

The Links provide a superb open space and, according to local legend, are home to the first ever "international" golf match between Scotland and England in 1681.

Ocean Terminal, Leith's stylish shopping centre designed by Sir Terence Conran, is nearby with a variety of stores, restaurants, a multi-screen cinema complex and the Royal Yacht Britannia moored alongside.
