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.

Experience Edinburgh Castle

Visitor highlights at Edinburgh Castle include Mons Meg, one of the world’s oldest cannons, the magnificent Scottish Crown Jewels and the Stone of Destiny – a source of considerable political controversy throughout Scottish history. Find out the stories behind these amazing artefacts on guided tours.

For those hoping to bag some great pictures, the walk through the Castle Esplanade towards the castle walls offers some fantastic photo opportunities. Here you will see the Edinburgh skyline as Kings and Queens once did.

See the sights of Edinburgh after checking into one of its many luxury or cheap hotels. Easily find accommodation in different areas using Expedia’s search tool.
