Scotland’s capital city combines architectural grandeur with cosy hospitality. Edinburgh’s small size makes it an ideal city for a relaxing sightseeing trip that doesn’t involve too much inner-city travel. Once you’ve booked into one of the city’s recommended hotels you’ll have everything more or less on your doorstep.
The centre of Edinburgh is home to some of Scotland’s most iconic buildings and landmarks. Top of the list is surely Edinburgh Castle, an ancient stronghold that towers above the city centre on the imposing Castle Rock. A short walk away in Princes Street Gardens the Scott Monument shoots up into the sky like a gothic space ship, a tribute to Walter Scott one of the city’s finest literary exports.
Edinburgh Corn Exchange
After a hard day’s sightseeing Edinburgh offers plenty of ways to relax and have fun. Enjoy a game of snooker or pool at one of the city’s busy clubs like the Ball Room on Jordan Lane or The Edinburgh Corn Exchange.
For some Scottish dancing, try on a kilt for size and attend a Ceilidh at the Ghillie Dhu on Shandwick Place. For something a bit more hip, head for the nightclubs on fashionable George Street.
