Make a holiday apartment in Edinburgh and Lothians your home away from home

HomeAway can help you track down your ideal holiday apartment in Edinburgh and the Lothians. This region is home to the beautiful city of Edinburgh, with its abundant history and culture, as well as world famous events. There’s also wonderful coastal scenery to enjoy, as well as some fantastic golf courses. Edinburgh and Lothians holiday homes are normally original stone buildings full of historic flourishes. You can also define the comforts to make your holiday as effortless as possible – it might be Internet access, a garden or simply an on-site parking space for your apartment in Edinburgh.

Things to do

-Museums. On holiday in Edinburgh and the Lothians you could visit the Museum of Scotland and connected Royal Museum, which feature collections relating to Scotland’s history, with a wealth of archaeological artefacts, but also galleries devoted to natural history and geology. Art lovers should head for the high-profile National Gallery of Scotland and Scotland National Gallery of Modern Art.

-Landmarks. Edinburgh’s Old Town and its New Town are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with immense historical interest. The Royal Mile can be found here, with the world-famous Edinburgh Castle, St Giles’ Cathedral, as well as the Abbey and Palace of Holyroodhouse, which holds the Queen’s extensive collection of art.

-Events. The Edinburgh Festival is the umbrella name for a variety of different festivals and events that take place in the city during the summer months. These include the sophisticated Edinburgh International Festival, as well as the Fringe Festival, which tends to be more off-beat and feature comedy performances.

-Golf. Since Golf originated not far from Edinburgh, it makes sense to enjoy a round at one of the numerous nearby courses. Some offer spectacular views of city landmarks like Edinburgh Castle. Two of the country’s most prestigious – Muirfield and Musselburgh are set here, while Gullane in East Lothian is home to three links courses of its own.

-Nightlife. Edinburgh with its cosmopolitan population offers some excellent dining, from Michelin-starred restaurants to traditional pubs, some of the best of which can be found in the Rose Street area. There are also plenty of lively nightspots, with nightclubs, music venues and all kinds of bars around Cowgate and Lothian Road.

Weather in Edinburgh and Lothians

Visiting a holiday home in Edinburgh and Lothians you can expect a temperate maritime climate, without any real extremes in summer or winter. The period from November to March brings highs that tend not to get above 10 degrees during the day, with lows just above freezing at night. There’s also a little more wet weather at this time of year. From April to August there’s much more sunshine, and maximum temperatures rise gradually from just above ten degrees in April to the high-teens in July and August.

Travel to Edinburgh and Lothians

Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is the busiest in Scotland and one of the busiest in the UK, with connections to cities throughout the UK and Europe, including Scandiavia, Central Europe and the Mediterranean. Once here, there’s an extensive road network, although congestion can be an issue during peak times. Public transport is provided by buses, which serve the centre, suburbs and Lothians, while there’s also a commuter rail line, the Edinburgh Crossrail. Edinburgh Waverley is the main station for inter-city rail travel – it’s on the East Coast line, from London to Aberdeen.

If you are looking to secure accommodation for two or three months, HomeAway offers a diverse range of short term rentals in Edinburgh located all across the city and its suburbs.

Welcomed by Francois on arrival and shown flat and secure parking (5 minute walk). Great location, very close to the centre of Stockbridge, bars, restaurants, shops and Sunday market. The flat looks directly down onto the Water of Leith complete with bubbling river with your own Heron and Ducks. 15minute walk (uphill, you'll never be fitter) to Princes Street and all the central Edinburgh attractions, trams to the airport and mainline rail stations. Flat very warm, comfortable and well equipped. It's a good one.

But the flat is great, very spacious, good bathrooms, convenient location for walking everywhere, and handy to have a small Sainsbury's just next door. We hope to return.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      It may have been extremely cold and frosty when we visited Edinburgh at the end of November but the reception we received from Maya coupled with the warmth of the apartment would have melted anything the weather threw at us. Everything was spotlessly clean and the kitchen well stocked with utensils. The beds were very comfortable and the living and dining area perfect for relaxing. Maya obviously likes to spoil her guests as the bathroom and en suite were well provided with toiletries - better than some well known hotels we have visited. We come to Edinburgh at this time of year for an annual reunion at the zoo and the apartment was perfectly situated - being within walking distance of the zoo and the city - around 30 minutes in each direction. For those who don't like too much walking the tram is less than 5 minutes away at Murrayfield stadium and it's only a couple of stops to the middle of Princes Street or one more if Harvey Nic's is your shop of choice! The absolute cherry on the cake was a parking permit that Maya offered us. The car never moved but then, as you will have gathered, we're walkers. There is a Tesco Metro store about 3 minutes away which had everything we needed. Maya provided us with a comprehensive welcome pack of which we were very grateful. We visited the Christmas market and "grazed" our way around trying the many different foods on offer. We enjoyed watching the ice skaters and our visit to Jenners for a spot of Christmas shopping. Our break was over far too quickly but isn't that the sign of a good time? We would recommend Maya's apartment to all friends and family in fact, anyone, and as it is on the ground floor for those who have "stair issues" it without doubt ticks every box.
