The Edinburgh skyline

Edinburgh is one of the most strikingly picturesque cities in the UK. The city is steeped in history but coated in contemporary charm which is what brings back guests year after year to Edinburgh hotels.

With so much on offer from sightseeing, bars and visitor attractions, planning your time surrounding your stay a must.

Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is one of the city’s most renowned landmarks.  Conveniently located just a short stroll from most central Edinburgh hotels, visiting the stunning historical building is a relaxing and leisurely day out.

Those who visit during the month of August for the Edinburgh Fringe can also enjoy seeing the Edinburgh Tattoo at Esplanade.

The castle’s perpetual presence and 1000 year history makes it the most prestigious place to visit in the city. Don’t do Edinburgh without seeing this honoured landmark.

3D Loch Ness Experience

Edinburgh’s 3D Lock Ness Experience invites visitors to discover the real truths behind the myths of the Loss Ness Monster.

Dubbed as the ‘world’s most famous mystery’ the tour reveals the depths of the Lock Ness, the creature’s habitat and more.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival

2012’s answer to this yearly Festival runs from 3 to 27 August. Comics, actors and entertainers will take to the stage across the whole of Edinburgh to provide first class shows for all the family.

Don’t miss The Ginge, The Geordie and The Geek at Just the Tonic at The Caves. Appearing twice daily throughout the festival, this hilarious comedy sketch is back for another year after a stint of recording for the BBC. One to watch in 2012, see them before they’re on the TV.
