Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland, Your Home Away From Home

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and also its second largest city. Positioned just slightly inland from the coast, it attracts thousands of visitors every year who are drawn to its interesting history, culture and architecture. There are many forms of accommodation to choose from in the city, but the best idea for anyone who wishes to see it from a more personal perspective, is to stay in a holiday rental apartment in Edinburgh. Tastefully furnished and decorated, and coming with a fully-equipped kitchen that enables self catering, staying in one has a far more comfortable feel than staying in an hotel.

Things to Do on Holiday in Edinburgh, Scotland

Whilst most people on holiday in Edinburgh will be more interested in the sights and attractions than activities, there is still plenty to do for people who desire to burn off some energy.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Edinburgh, Scotland

There are, of course, many other attractions that can be visited, and an interesting way to do this, is to buy the Edinburgh Pass which grants admission to them all.

Weather in Edinburgh, Scotland

Despite its northerly location, Edinburgh has a surprisingly mild maritime climate. Even during the winter, the temperatures rarely fall beneath freezing during the daytime. Between November and February, the average daytime high temperatures measure 7 degrees Celsius and the lows measure 1.5 degrees. It does get lower than this on occasion, and the wind can make it feel colder than it is. During the summer months, the average daytime highs are between 17 and 19 degrees, and the lows 10 degrees. Rainfall is spread quite evenly throughout the year at 70mm per month. A holiday in Edinburgh can be taken at any time of year, although the most popular time, is from the late spring through to early autumn.

British Airways fly out of London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW).

Fairly neutral decor with some very nice artistic touches. Excellent location. We were there as family for my sons wedding in Portobello town hall. Comfortably accommodated myself, husband, 2 daughters and partners. my son and sister. Found Portobello to be a very friendly neighbourhood. Plenty of local amenities. Highly recommend.
