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).

We were greeted on arrival by a very welcoming host named Angela who looks after their house. First impressions were" Immaculate". Followed by stunning, spacious and overwhelmed by the spectacular view considering we were also walking distance (20 mins) from the city centre. The townhouse is on 4 levels. Being able to sit out in the beautiful garden was also an added bonus... thanks to the weather obviously... Our kids spent most of the time on the top level watching films and chilling out thanks to the wi fi. Our husbands enjoyed 2games of gplf at nearby courses and took in a game of football at the local football ground at Easter Rd. Which was also a short stroll away. While us girls enjoyed shopping in the city an evening at the cinema and some even ventured up Calton Hill. All in all a perfect weekend over too soon. We look forward to renting it again.

Heather is an excellent host and my wife and I would thoroughly recommend her property if staying in Edinburgh. Nice and central for all places of interest.

The apartment is very quiet as it's tucked away from the main road. It's got everything you could need and my friend and I couldn't believe how everything looked brand new. It has been very carefully looked after. The bedroom has an enormous bed with proper bedding and a wardrobe with a decent number of coat hangers, while the sofa bed was also apparently very comfortable and the lounge came with a second wardrobe for people staying in there. The kitchen is very well equipped with a full oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster. The bathroom is stunning with a fantastic shower. Again it all looked like it was brand new. There are really lovely touches in the bathroom, for example little bars of soap and shower gels, all from a decent brand. The location is great as it's about a ten minute walk into town, it is uphill but we got rapidly used to it, or there are two buses the 27 and 23 that got straight up into town. Along the road are several coffee shops, there is a great cupcake shop just a few doors down or further up there is the Archipelago bakery who did a wonderful afternoon tea. Just round the corner is Earthy Cafe and store who serve delicious lunches and have a great whole food shop. I would recommend going here to stock up on food but there are plenty of supermarkets on the same road as the flat. The Botanic Gardens are also just round the corner, so close that we were able to pop in several times. The centre of Edinburgh is very close, you can even walk to Harvey Nichols from the apartment which is next to the Portrait Gallery which we loved and has a fantastic cafe. As Londoners we were thrilled at the number of artisan coffee shops in the area.
