Other popular neighbourhoods of Edinburgh in which to base yourself are the vibrant South Side area where there are many good restaurants, hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses, and Haymarket in the West End, known for its superb and diverse eateries.

If you are staying in an Edinburgh Airport hotel then you are also just an hour from Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland.

Once the country’s industrial engine, this edgy port city is rife with acclaimed cultural institutions and a party scene that would make most other European cities green with envy. There are many excellent value Glasgow hotels available that will put you right in the heart of the action.

Edinburgh Airport hotels are also within easy driving distance of Dunfermline, which is just 30 minutes away across the Forth road bridge.

What not to miss near Edinburgh Airport

Visitors staying at a hotel near Edinburgh Airport are close to all of the city’s many great attractions, while avoiding the crowds and potentially saving considerable sums on the cost of accommodation.

There are plenty of unmissable sights in and around Edinburgh, the principal one being of course Edinburgh Castle, a Scottish icon that occupies a dominant position atop Castle Rock. Families will love exploring the old prisons, the Great Hall and the Stone of Destiny, as well as witnessing the traditional firing of the One O’clock Gun. If you are bringing the kids along, you will have little difficulty finding a suitable family-friendly hotel at Edinburgh Airport.

From the castle you can move downwards toward the Royal Mile, which along with Princes Street is one of the liveliest streets in the city, and runs all the way down to the 17th century Holyrood Palace. Take a tour of Holyrood Palace and you can see the former apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots, who lost her head during Scotland’s turbulent history.

Other popular visits in Edinburgh include the beautiful Royal Botanic Garden, which can offer moments of tranquillity even at its busiest, and the National Gallery. Showcased in this prestigious building are treasures from Scottish artists including Wilkie, Ramsay and Raeburn, as well as works of art by Cezanne, Van Gogh and Botticelli.

Another popular time to visit Edinburgh is during Hogmanay, or the New Year celebrations, when wild parties take places in bars and on the streets across the city. The torchlight procession down the Royal Mile is a major highlight.

Should you be partial to a wee dram now and again, then why not try a spot of whisky tasting in Edinburgh. You can sample it in bars, distilleries, and even the homes of locals throughout the year.
