Edinburgh Scotland – so many things to do and see !


b&b in edinburghWhen visiting Edinburgh for a short stay, say over a weekend there are plenty of cheap b&b’s. For those who prefer luxury vacation rentals, check out the many fantastic bed and breakfast or friendly guest houses and other rentals. There are so many things to do and see in this gorgeous city such as the Zoo which both children and adults will enjoy.

starGet Best Bed and Breakfasts

For people interested in Scottish history, pay a visit to Milne’s Court. This open square was built in 1692 and was the first courtyard where people met many years ago. The City of the Dead Tours is also a must-do with exciting walks underground and in haunted graveyards.

The city centre is also home to the Black Watch Memorial, a monument created in 1910 to commemorate the deaths of officers and men who died in the Boer War. Of course no visit to the capital city of Scotland is complete without spending a day exploring the city’s spectacular castle. It’s one of Scotland’s top tourist attractions, an historic fortress which stands out and provides panoramic views of the city.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see the National Museum of Scotland and the amazing Outlook Tower which is one of the oldest in the UK.

Properties which are the perfect base to explore the fascinating city


guest houseBed and breakfast accommodation, as well as guest houses, make the perfect base from which to explore the fascinating city of Edinburgh. Rest assured there are many cheap b&b’s right in the heart of the city to choose from.

Whatever your budget, you can find suitable accommodation near the Zoo as well. Visitors from around the world enjoy a day out at the Zoo especially the kids who can feed the animals with the help of the zoo keepers. Make sure you have your camera ready to capture photographs of giant pandas, koalas, zebras, tigers and giraffes. After such an enjoyable day out it’s reassuring to know you can return to your comfortable and stylish city centre accommodation.

Cheap b&b’s and guest houses are usually family run. Proprietors offer guests a warm Scottish welcome, whether staying for one night, a long weekend, mid week break or a full week. City centre bed and breakfast establishments provide exceptional value for money and a hearty Scottish breakfast.

Reserving budget friendly properties online will leave you with more cash in your pocket to see the city’s major attractions. Edinburgh is the perfect destination for top quality accommodation during the whole year. A popular time of the year is December, when the city is overrun with tourists looking for Christmas gifts at one of the many shops. The annual Hogmanay is held the last days of December with a large fireworks display over Edinburgh Castle.

We offer you guest houses within walking distance of the city’s major attractions. The EICC is nearby as well. The city has an excellent and convenient public bus service which gives you quick and easy access to the other parts of the city. The regular bus and train services to Glasgow, the West and the North of Scotland are just a few minutes walk away.
