Pocket Guide: Old Town Edinburgh Castle Hotels

You can probably count on one hand the number of cities that have a castle right in the centre of them, and there are none more picturesque than Edinburgh. One of Scotland’s most popular tourist attractions, Edinburgh Castle is a stone’s throw away from a variety of fantastic hotels.

Around this area you will walk down the Royal Mile teeming with street performers, markets, excellent restaurants and traditional pubs. A whole day can be easily spent exploring the castle then grabbing Scottish food and drink in the Old Town.
