Self-catering accommodation in Edinburgh
Visit the exceptionally beautiful city of Edinburgh for an unforgettable holiday. With something to offer everybody, why not treat yourself to a week of retail therapy, fine dining, and culture. Discover the fascinating history of the city along the Royal Mile, the medieval marketplace, and at the stunning Edinburgh Castle. Edinburgh is steeped in rich history and traditional charm and this can be seen clearly in the beautiful architecture of the city. Spend a day taking in the beautiful buildings - the stunning juxtapositions of the Old and New towns are a truly magical aspect that gives Edinburgh such a unique charm. You can read all about it in our guide to Edinburgh.
The city also has a rich cultural and artistic history and many famous literary connections, being named in 2004 as UNESCO’s first City of Literature; Edinburgh World Heritage provides a self-guided tour where you can visit locations that inspired greats such as Robert Louis Stevenson. Coincide a holiday with the wild and vibrant Edinburgh Fringe Festival and potentially see a star of the future in a play or revue piece. Another major event is the Royal Tattoo which sees the congregation of regiment massed pipes and drummers who compete for coveted awards. The Edinburgh Film Festival is one of the leading events of its kind in Europe, and it's well worth trying to bag some tickets to a preview of a big film! If you like a brilliant view, head to the peak of the nearby Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano that forms a large part of Holyrood Park.
It’s also a superb prospect for hillwalkers. Whilst in Holyrood Park, it's worth taking in the Palace of Holyrood House too. Art lovers are in for a treat as the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is located at the heart of the city. After a morning of viewing Scotland’s finest works of art, head to the Royal Botanic Garden to enjoy the splendid array of exotic plants in and around the glasshouses. Take a city break to this great place and stay in one of our fantastic holiday cottages in Edinburgh with your loved one. It’s a place like no other and is arguably the best city experience in Scotland. Within an hour of Glasgow, it’s very easy to visit its wild, cultural neighbour. Where will you stay during your Edinburgh holiday?
