You will never be short of excitement
The capital and largest city of Scotland is located in the Scottish Lowlands region. It’s situated inland from a large estuary on the east coast, known as the Firth of Forth.
Edinburgh is a fantastic place for holiday rentals, steeped in myth and legend. The majestic crag overlooking the city is known as Arthur’s Seat and is imbued with Arthurian mythology. Apartments to rent in this city will also enable you to stay in the home of the famous novelist Walter Scott and the philosopher David Hume (whose house also can be seen high up over the city streets).
And with its fantastic array of bars, night clubs, music venues, and galleries, the city centre will ensure that even if you stay here for the long term you will never be short of excitement or things to do. Wander through Princes Street gardens, and visit the various surrounding bars and restaurants. Murrayfield, the home of Scottish Rugby is just to the west of the city centre. The Royal Yacht Britannia, which is now a museum, is moored at Leith, just a mile from the city centre.
During the summer months most of the festivals for which Edinburgh is famous take place. Festivals including the International Book Festival, the International Film Festival, Art and Comedy Festival and, of course, the Fringe Festival.
What to do while staying here ?
Whether you are enjoying a short stay (such as a weekend break) or are seeking more long term accommodation, apartments to rent in this city are ideally suited for soaking up some Scottish culture.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Scottish National Gallery are filled with treasures from throughout the centuries and are well worth a visit. Make sure to venture over to Camera Obscura, right in the city centre, too, to enjoy some amazing views of the city.
If you are just staying for one night, these, along with the Walter Scott Monument, should be essential landmarks on your tourist itinerary. As well as a wealth of cultural attractions, this city also boasts great natural beauty.
The sweeping coastline, right next to the city streets, is a gorgeous place to visit. And if you are a keen walker, make sure to hike up to Arthur’s Seat and enjoy the unforgettable panoramic vistas!
Short Term Stay for the Weekend or One Night – Party (Stag & Hen)
This city has accommodation to suit everyone’s needs. If you are looking for something super cheap for a short term stay, for instance, in this city you can easily find an range of apartment rentals and luxury penthouses in a variety of grand old Gothic buildings at a reasonable cost. Popular are also b&b’s and the many affordable Edinburgh hotels.
Or, perhaps you would like to enjoy a weekend break in a luxury modern city centre apartment? Never fear, because Scotland’s capital has plenty of spacious, well furnished, and elegant self catering rentals for you to explore.
If you only plan to stay for one night, it makes sense to stay right in the centre of the city, so that you can get to see all of the attractions with ease. Scotland’s capital city really spoils you for choice when it comes to holiday rentals.
Choose from cottages, houses, apartments for rent, or capacious double rooms and make your holiday a success. Stay beside the coast for gorgeous views, and on the outskirts of the city if you would like to combine your stay in the metropolis with a visit to some of the nearby towns like Berwick Upon Tweed.
Rentals are located at fantastic locations in the city’s most popular districts such as Broughton, Leith, Haymarket, New Town, Newington, Prestonfield, and Old Town. All rentals are close to the city’s main hospitals such as the Western General Hospital and Royal Infirmary Hospital. Several flats in Edinburgh are suitable as a base for a stag or hen party. These party (pads) flats are perfect for a larger group.
