Find cottages in EdinburghVisit Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city of contrasts, where history and heritage sit comfortably among the hustle and bustle of a sophisticated, modern metropolis.

Scotland's capital city provides the perfect city break destination that can be combined with rural relaxation in the beautiful Lothian countryside.

Edinburgh is in fact a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a multitude of first class attractions, classical and ancient buildings, a thriving city centre and green open spaces. With cottages in and around Edinburgh you'll be able to both enjoy the city centre experience and explore the surrounding region.

The imposing Edinburgh Castle is one of the city's most iconic attractions; it sits on volcanic rock and the 1pm gun has been fired on most days since 1861. The National War Museum is set within the Castle, or if you want a little peace and quiet, you could head for the Royal Botanic Gardens, considered to be some of the finest in the world.

Camera Obscura and World of Illusions is a great way to while away an afternoon, whatever the weather. Established in 1835 it's Scotland's oldest purpose-built attraction, offering 360° views of the city. A visit to Mary King's Close is a 'must see'; this warren of streets beneath the Royal Mile was built-over, and has remained frozen in time since the 17th century; now you can step into Edinburgh's history with a guide to see what life was like for the people who worked, lived and died here.

Put the Edinburgh Fringe Festival into your diary; this renowned event attracts hundreds of visitors annually who come to see the plays, performances and comedy shows.
