Introducing Edinburgh

Book an Edinburgh bed and breakfastAlthough Edinburgh receives most of its visitors either during August for the month of festivals or in December for the famous Hogmanay festivities, locals will tell you that the best time to visit their city is in September or October, when the autumn days are bright and crisp, and the darkening evenings lend a mysterious atmosphere to the medieval turrets and rugged scenery.

Edinburgh holds a rather precarious position atop a landscape of rocky hills and cliffs, but the views from the top make it well worth the climb. While navigating the twisting alleys and narrow stone steps of the medieval city, any corner you turn may bring you unexpectedly to a vista of green hills, blue seas or rusty rock face.

Book an Edinburgh B&BDespite overflowing with history and culture, Edinburgh is a modern, dynamic capital. Among the beautiful old buildings you can find haute couture, gourmet cuisine and world-class entertainment. The 4 universities contribute a total of over 100,000 students to the city’s population and there is an almost-tangible air of vibrancy and creativity at any time of year.

Whether gazing out from the battlements of Edinburgh Castle, walking in the shadows of the Royal Mile’s towering spires or scurrying through the vaults on an underground ghost tour, the atmosphere of the city is always uniquely Edinburgh.
