Welcome to Scotland’s capital city!

Lettingweb’s main office is located in Edinburgh – so we may be partial – but we think this is a cracking city in which to live and work.

Now, before you resume your search for flats to rent, we’ve taken the liberty of throwing together a few facts for you to store away in the old noodle.

Here we go!

Flats to rent in Edinburgh

First things first: you need to find a flat to rent in Edinburgh. Fortunately, finding property to rent in Edinburgh should be fairly easy.

According to, the city is divided into 58 different areas in which Edinburghers work, play and live. Many of these areas have a distinct style, such as gothic Old Town; modern new-builds in Leith; and fashionable New Town and Stockbridge. Basically, as you browse flats for rent in Edinburgh you’ll find lots of property and location types.

If you need a wee bit of help sorting out which part of Edinburgh to call home, letting agents can help. They are area experts - sort of like letting knowledge superheroes but without capes. Lucky for you, we happen to have a list of them in our Lettingweb Agent Directory.
