Experience Edinburgh: what to do, what to see

Once you arrive for your holidays in Edinburgh you'll easily want to see/do everything! Walk along the Water of Leith, catch live folk music at a pub in the Old Town and visit Arthur's Seat, an extinct volcano outside the city centre.

Essentials in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle: This stronghold has seen the likes of kings and queens, armies and battles. Today it's the most popular attraction in all of Scotland, not only for its history but for its views. On a clear day and you can see as far as Fife.

Rosslyn Chapel: Now popular thanks to The Da Vinci Code, this 15th century chapel is a monument to the art of the masons and their stone carvings which are rich in symbolism. Many believe there are hidden tunnels underneath the church adding to the mystery of this place.

Festivals: August is peak festival time in Edinburgh. The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is iconic but for something more alternative, the Fringe Festival delivers. Comedy theatre and avant-garde everything, it's the largest art festival in the world!

Whisky: No one knows for sure when the Scotsmen started producing whisky but nowadays their "water of life" is known around the world. Hire a car in Edinburgh and follow the Whisky Trail to tour a distillery.

Accommodations in Edinburgh
