Edinburgh Craigleith Shopping - Gluten Free

If you are gluten free and visiting Edinburgh, you may wish to consider staying at our lovely Westside Balcony Apartment. Apart from the fact its a comfortable and bright vacation rental in Edinburgh, and has a fully equipped kitchen for home cooking, we can also provide you with a gluten free toaster (please ask in advance to arrange this - basically a 2nd toaster that we keep for guests with food allergies)!

Westside Balcony Apartment with fully equipped kitchen and gluten free toaster (ask for details!)

This Edinburgh holiday rental apartment is particularly useful for Coeliacs visiting Edinburgh as its across the road from many stores that have a reasonable range of gluten free food. There's a M&S foodhall which has its gluten free food scattered through the store (look for items in green packaging). A decent fridge range includes such items as gluten free lasagne, gluten free scotch eggs (lovely!), and there is a separate section for items such as bread and biscuits. Many of their sausages are gluten free too however M&S seem to have less than other stores in their freezer section.

The Sainsburys grocery store has a good selection of its gluten free food in one aisle. Look or ask for the 'Free From' section.

Both the above stores are 5 minute walk from our Westside Apartment.

If you fancy delivery then both Dominos and Pizza Hut in Edinburgh now offer Gluten Free Pizzas, both are very good. Order easily online for delivery. If you are staying at one of our Edinburgh Apartments and require further information on Gluten free eating in Edinburgh then feel free to ask.

Edinburgh Villa Holiday Rentals - money saving tips

As a note, we'd like to say that with more and more holiday rental listing sites now charging the guests an extra % for booking through them (nearly an additional 9% on top of the owners rental rates with some properties!) we will be hopefully updating our own websites and blogs more often so y'all might find us when searching for Edinburgh short term accommodation!

 Edinburgh Villa Holiday Rentals has been offering vacation rentals in Edinburgh for 10 years, and we have always paid in full for a yearly advert allowing guests to have direct contact with us. Within the last few years these 'big' websites have been bought over, and it's becoming more and more commission based advertising. Guests may not realise that many of these websites are adding fees onto them, that we the owners have no control over, and owners are gradually being forced to advertise on this commission/fee basis - obviously putting the prices up for guests and taking the personal contact away from owner to guest. With email addresses and phone numbers blanked out on these sites now, we hope that more and more holidaymakers might start to try and find holiday rentals owners own websites. Many of us vacation rental owners do have our own small websites and you could perhaps save a wee fortune by spending a little time on google researching and contacting owners direct via their websites.

Our prices quoted on our website www.edinburghvilla.com will be the total amount due, there are no other fees or booking costs. The prices quoted on many of these sites will now be that amount plus their fee and booking charge!

Happy savvy searching for your accommodation!
