#1 is in the worst location by far. Cross it off the list.

And note that the two grassmarket locations will be downhill (contrary to rumors, many of which I've started, there are hills that go down in Edinburgh) from the Castle and the Royal Mile. Then again, the flat ON the Royal Mile that you noted indicates that it is on the Canongate side, which means it too will be downhill from the Castle but it will be close to Holyrood and close to the farcical Parliament building and Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill (which is underrated - the "notable sites in Edinburgh" lists have Arthur's Seat but overlook Calton Hill, which provides a great view and a good bit of history based on who's interred there).

Well the apartment on N Bank St would be the easiest to get to the airport bus from - a short walk down Market Street then turn onto Waverley Bridge. But if you have luggage the 7th floor will be a killer.

I wouldn't say the Montgomery Street is a no-no, based on the postcode it's a typical late Victorian tenement which would give you access to the N22 if you want to go to the airport before 4:00am
