Discover Edinburgh and beyond

We're only a stone's throw away from the bustle of Edinburgh’s Old Town, where the drama of Scotland’s history can be felt in the cobbled streets, narrow alleys, medieval houses and church towers, and where the skyline is dominated by Edinburgh castle, perched on its ancient volcanic rock.

Edinburgh offers superb sight-seeing, buildings and historic graveyards to explore, quiet galleries and museums, tranquil green spaces and scenic walks, thrilling new attractions, serious shopping, and a vast choice of restaurants, cafes, pubs and nightlife to suit all tastes. It’s also the ideal gateway from which to explore the breathtaking scenery and vibrant culture of the Scottish Highlands and Lowlands.
