The Scottish capital has a variety of attractive hotel options for travellers of all tastes and budgets.

Edinburgh’s Grand Buildings
There are intriguing buildings all over this picturesque city for travellers to enjoy, so picking a favourite won’t be easy. For amazing views of the city take a walk up Calton Hill one afternoon and visit the National Monument of Scotland. This unfinished tribute to the Parthenon in Athens is a great place for a picnic.
Down the centuries Scotland’s landed gentry have constructed many grand estates. Dalmeny House on the outskirts of Edinburgh is one such example and it is open to visitors to take a look round in the summertime. This Tudor-Gothic style mansion house is a beautiful piece of architecture.
