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. There is some fun cycling to be had in the area surrounding the city, and towards the coast, sailing and other water sports are also possible. Scotland is often associated with golf, and there are a choice of courses to play at near by.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Edinburgh, Scotland

There are a wealth of attractions that should be seen during a holiday in Edinburgh, and it would be impossible to list them all here. The top ones, though, include Edinburgh Castle which can be seen from almost anywhere in the city; The National Museum of Scotland; The Palace of Holyrood House; and The Scotch Whiskey Heritage Centre. 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. Edinburgh is also famous for its many festivals, which include The Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Hogmanay street party. There is no better place to celebrate the New Year than in the Scottish capital!

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.

Travel to Edinburgh, Scotland

Most people from the UK considering a holiday in Edinburgh will choose to drive there. It must be noted, that the distance can be quite deceptive for people that are driving there for the first time. Edinburgh does also have an airport (EDI) for anyone choosing to fly, and it takes in flights from most major European cities. British Airways fly out of London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW).

The property overlooks the Holyrood park and provides a good stunning view from the living room and the master bedroom. My Family appreciated the decor and cleanliness of the property. The kitchen was very well stocked with good quality crockery and glassware. We will surely be coming back. Thank you so much.

Spent the week with my parents and kids partly to catch up with relatives as Edinburgh is my parents home town. Relatives popped by to see us for a cuppa or to meet us before exploring and were amazed at the apartment. .so convenient to everything in the centre and with loads of amazing restaurants family were happy to come meet up close by to us. Had a lovely meal at Riccardos italian by the kings theatre and a large family group were looked after very well at the Links hotel. The owner met us as promised and extra bedding and towels were brought later, all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. And the cooker was a talking point, huge oven and 5 ring hob and decent knives (often lacking in self catering accommodation ). Thanks for a great week.

We could see a lot of thought had gone into every little detail, including arriving to homemade cookies and a cup of tea, just what was needed after a long journey! Thank you Fiona for being so thoughtful. We'll definitely be back!
